Detective is on a mission to bring the human element back to the sales industry and we need your help!

We’re looking for a hard-working, passionate Full Stack Developer to join our team. You’ll help us build out our Ruby on Rails/MongoDB back-end and React-powered Chrome extension as we bring our freshly redesigned product to market.

You’ll work with a small, motivated product team that supports and pushes each other to keep learning and growing every day. We code with agility and practice continuous delivery to ship functionality to our clients as fast as possible.

We created Detective because we saw technology turning sales into a game of who can spam the most. Our platform provides clients with the intel they need to make authentic connections with the toughest-to-reach decision-makers. We’ve raised $4M from GoAhead ventures, founders of Groupon, Hoovers, Hubspot & more. We work out of a timber loft in the heart of West Loop, Chicago.

Is this you?

  • Bored w/ building plain old webapps? (Users 🧡 our chrome extension.)
  • Take pride in your code
  • Care about usability & performance
  • 3 years minimum relevant work experience (including Ruby/Rails)
  • Chicago local or willing to relocate
  • Excited to make a big impact on a small, high performing team 🚀

Technologies we use:

  • Ruby / Rails / MongoDB
  • Typescript / React / Redux
  • Rspec / RTL
  • Web sockets
  • Chrome APIs

What we hope you bring:

  • Curiosity and empathy for the people using the tools we build
  • An appreciation of pair programming and a love of collaborative problem solving
  • Enthusiasm for writing great specs
  • A team-focused mindset (we make it over the finish line together)


  • Competitive salary, plus equity options
  • Health, dental, & vision benefits for you and your family (50% paid)
  • Flexible working hours, location, and remote policy
  • Unlimited vacation policy - work hard and take time when you need it
  • Fabulous coworkers that celebrate each other every day

Interested in joining our team? Reach out and let’s talk!

Detective requires all team members to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Also, while our remote policy is very flexible, this role is not 100% remote.
