ONE is looking for a Senior Ruby Developer to join our small yet high performing team. We develop, host and maintain an industry leading content distribution platform for broadcast customers of all sizes. The ONE platform acts as a hub for every aspect of broadcast distribution, including a customer facing website, offline viewing and screening app, and a suite of catalogue and content management tools.
