Calling All Ruby Engineers in Bandung, IndonesiaDropsuite launches its first distributed software development team in Indonesia

The Opportunity

Dropsuite is a fast-growing cloud software company that helps SMEs in over 100 countries easily backup, recover and protects their digital assets. We keep getting bigger every day — and we’re on the lookout for talented programmers to join our engineering team as we expand into Bandung, Indonesia.

Our Team Leader

Dondi Sasmita, one of Dropsuite’s elite software engineering managers, will head up our new Bandung facility. Dondi is an avid gamer and multi-disciplined programmer with many years of software management experience under his belt. Dondi describes his appreciation for coding as “poetry for machines.” Written well, software can be coded in a way that is both elegant and purposeful. Dondi is looking forward to interviewing technical recruits like you who may want to become part of our exciting organization.

Why Ruby

Dropsuite is an organization that embraces innovation. We take pride in implementing disruptive ideas and adding value to all of our backup products. We do this by utilizing programming languages like Ruby that when combined with lean processes, allow us to deliver beautiful, highly scalable and low error prone code.

To augment Ruby’s lack of concurrency and parallelization behavior, the Dropsuite engineering team utilizes Scala. Dropsuite feels Scala is ideal for today’s scalable, distributed, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. It balances out Ruby nicely.

“Dropsuite is a huge supporter of Ruby,” said Dropsuite’s Dondi Sasmita. “I had the good fortune of meeting Yukihiro Matsumoto, the creator of Ruby, in person at an industry event. I’m a big believer in Yukihiro’s guiding philosophy when designing Ruby known as the principle of least surprise — which means that developers want to have fun and express themselves when they program, rather than having to fight with the language. Ruby is relatively easy to learn, you can do a lot with it and its simple to share best practices.”

The right candidates should be have 1-2 years of Ruby / Rails / Sinatra software skills, experience in using databases (PostgreeSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra, Redi), experience in Test Driven Development, a solutions oriented attitude and a true passion for innovative technology.
