Company Overview

ProFinda is pioneering “Workforce Optimization”. This emerging £2.8bn software category will transform organisational productivity and the employee talent agenda. With our unique technology, our global clients and channel partnerships we are entering a massively exciting growth phase.

ProFinda is headquartered in London.  Since going live in 2011, we have become an award-winning enterprise technology solution with a focus on professional services and other knowledge-driven industries.

These organisations have been spending millions on talent systems that have not given them the information they need about their own employee’s skills, let alone their total talent pool including contingent and alumni workers. As a result, employees are left unengaged and under-utilised while these organisations spend more money sourcing contingent workers to fill the gap, and not necessarily the right ones. ProFinda is a workforce optimization platform that maps the skills, knowledge, and expertise available across an organisation's total talent supply chain of internal, contingent and alumni workers. By implementing ProFinda, a company can now match their available talent internally and externally with the right opportunities at the right time, increasing engagement, productivity, and efficiency while decreasing costs. We use our proprietary skills ontology and machine learning to build an accurate knowledge base of the skills and experiences of employees, contractors, and alumni for major enterprises.

We believe we are changing the way companies think about their people and the way people think about their own careers, by making the total talent pool a reality. To take customers on this journey we need to win their confidence, excel at delivery and continually delight them as the product grows and changes. We treat each client like they were our first and want to find people who are as passionate as we are about client successes.

Role Overview

As part of your role, as a Senior Ruby on Rails Engineer, you will be able to architect and solve complex problems with the best tools you can find. We expect you to be an experienced programmer, with a computer science background or proof that you are a self-educated hacker, well-grounded in the core principles of software development and programming languages.


You are proactive with exceptional knowledge of product and team building. When you think a better approach could be taken, you share that knowledge and reasoning with the rest of the team. You are a problem solver; you are gathering the relevant information to make an informed choice whenever you encounter a problem and then move ahead with the optimal decision.  You will be comfortable with providing technical direction on projects, pair programming, or assisting other developers, epic coding sessions, meeting deadlines, inventing new things, and loving what you do. We value intelligence, creativity and friendliness so you will be working with a friendly innovative bunch who are not afraid of trying new things and doing things differently.
