About Stora

Stora launched in 2020 aiming to revolutionise the self storage industry. Our platform was designed to solve real-life problems that competitors weren’t, and as a result we’ve brought on board hundreds of customers from across the global. We’re a fast-growing company who’ve gained a reputation as innovators in this space, and we plan to keep it that way. Our team is small, focused and love to build world-class software.

The Position

Stora is hiring a Senior Software Engineer. We’ll be accepting applications until 7th May, with a start date ASAP.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our team to help us on our journey to build the operating system for self storage. There’s lots of impactful development work ahead where you can make your mark.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Stora you'll focus on our core Rails based platform, assisting in the delivery of our roadmap, helping to create the operating system for the self storage industry.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Shaping the work required for upcoming features
  • Building new features
  • Enhancing existing features
  • Writing tests and fixing bugs
  • Reviewing pull requests


If you're a Ruby developer with experience across the stack, who doesn't mind trying their hand at anything, then you'll fit in perfectly.

Generally, we work best with self-starting team players. People who are happy to take the reins and see a piece of work through to completion. We're always there to help if needs be.

Day to day you'll be working with:

  • Rails 7
  • PostgreSQL
  • Hotwire
  • ViewComponents, Sass and BEM
  • Sidekiq
  • Stripe Connect and Billing
  • Heroku

Stora is a fully remote company, and this is a remote job. For now we prefer candidates based in the UK, but will consider anywhere with at least 5 hours of overlap with GMT during a normal working day.

Our Hiring Process

You’ll hear from us by 12th May 2023, about your progression to the interview phase. Anticipate 2-3 remote interviews, each lasting 30 minutes, with our principal engineers scheduled at your convenience. We will discuss your background, development approach, and professional experience. Nothing too crazy - we just want to get a feel for your experience and an idea of how you think you may be able to help us build the next phases of Stora.

Following the interviews, our final candidates will be asked to complete an at-home project that should take no more than four hours. This exercise reflects the nature of our work and enables us to better evaluate your capabilities. We limit this stage to a maximum of 3 candidates, who should allocate approximately one workday to complete the project.

We aim to make an offer within a week of the at-home challenge submission.

We appreciate you giving us that consideration, and we promise to give you our full attention in return. We look forward to hearing from you!


  • 4-day week. We work a 4-day work week, working 8 hours per day.
  • Competitive salary. Based on role, skill, experience and location.
  • Remote-first. Stora is a remote-first company. That means you can work from wherever fits you best—be it at home, a co-working space or somewhere else. It’s up to you.
  • Flexible hours. To help you balance life with work we’re happy for you to flex your working hours to fit your schedule.
  • WFH budget. To help you do your best work, we provide you with a laptop of your choice and a WFH budget to create your ideal work environment.
  • 28 days paid vacation. Alongside a 4-day week we offer 28 days paid annual leave per year.
  • Pension & health insurance. We provide you with a pension, and private health insurance for you and your direct family members.
  • Team meet ups. We give you the opportunity to connect in real life too, with an optional team day every Thursday in Belfast, or during one of our two company meet ups each year.
