    Junior Ruby on Rails Developer

    Romania - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a junior web developer, passionate about Ruby on Rails. I developed some personal projects, based on RoR plus jQuery and Bootstrap, with many more to come in the following months. I dedicate my full time to study, coding and improving my web dev skills. I love hands-on learning, so my goal is to work together with a senior level team, to bring my contribution to the project, but in the same time to learn from the team and familiarize with industry best practices. Nice, clean looking code is very important for me, this is why I adopted some standardization for all my projects: SLIM for HTML templating, Sass and Bootstrap for styling and Coffeescript for jQuerry. I'm flexible with the working hours and also with travels (if required), and open to any collaboration opportunities that will bring mutual benefits. Looking forward for a more detailed discussion!
