Ring.io is on a mission to empower sales teams with software weapons. Every sales team is at war with other sales teams in their industry. Our apps give sales pros an unfair advantage.
We specialize in communication and engagement software. Our killer app is a CRM-embedded dialer that helps sales reps and managers drive interactions with prospects.
Just like an exoskeleton increases a soldier’s range and ability to carry gear, Ring.io augments a sales rep’s ability to develop many more parallel shallow relationships.
That’s today. Tomorrow, what weapons will sales teams need?
The thread that weaves together everything we do is a passion for translating hard core tech and usability R&D into software innovations that solve practical problems in a powerful way, and that professionals fall in love with.
The team behind Ring.io is made of intelligent, collegial and curious people. We believe in solving hard problems once and for all. We believe that a few, focused, fast learners who trust each other can make a big difference.
About the Position…
Ring.io has been delivering world-class software as a service for over a decade. Our engineering team is made of a small group of high-caliber, collaborative engineers.
This is the perfect role for an Software engineer who’s ready for a role where their potential to learn and grow is unlimited by the usual blockers:
If you’ve ever been asked to support a crummy or old tech stack, you know how demoralizing it can be to see your hours slip away fixing the unfixable.
If you’ve been stuck being the junior person on a team that has no time for you and doesn't trust you, you know how tough it is to wake up every day and try to fake enthusiasm about the meaningless projects you've been assigned.
In contrast, the Ring.io team is small, you have direct access to over 50 man-years of engineering talent, and we don't waste time doing meaningless work. You will be able to trace directly what you do to customer impact. Every project you work on will be an amazing learning experience that will grow your skills.
If you’re still excited after reading that, then let’s get to the details

We can help you get what you need to have an effective home office. You'll have less interaction than if you worked in an office, but less distractions too.
