We’re a new US based startup with developers working on our project all around the world, and are now hiring one or possibly two more developers.
You can work reasonable hours for your time zone rather than needing to conform to US hours. The job is open-ended, after a first trial assignment, it could be extended substantially.
On the back end we’re using Amazon’s new Aurora database (a MySQL compatible product), plus various other Amazon services to give us the high availability high throughput capacities we need. We have some Wordpress for a related blog and some semi-stack pages, and a couple of Discourse forums too.
We coordinate our development through GitHub and Pivotal Tracker – the latter is easy to learn, hopefully you have some experience with the former.
We are considering adding some Selenium testing processes and already use Rspec.
In the future we’ll be adding mobile apps as well, but that is, as we said, in the future.
You don’t need to be familiar with everything we list above, but you do need solid Ruby/Rails and SQL experience, and the more experience beyond that you can provide, the better.
We have a mild preference for a graduate, but experience is the most important thing.
Pay is negotiable – and if you prove yourself to be fairly adding value to the team, you can expect regular reviews upward.
We set very high standards for ourselves, our code, and our employees. If you’re ready for a challenge, and think you’re good enough, please get in touch. Wow us with your application and resume, and we’ll get back to you quickly.
