    Ruby on Rails Developer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a talented and experienced full-stack web application developer. I work almost exclusively in Ruby on Rails. I love developing applications “the Rails way”. I appreciate the brilliance of the Rails architecture and enjoy using it to build world-class applications. I’ve created a number of complex systems using Rails including e-commerce sites, inventory management systems, scheduling systems, forum applications, internal organizational systems, and order fulfillment systems. My rails knowledge is also augmented with intimate knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, SQL, and jQuery.
