Rails web developer
Oct 2008 - Dec 2008
We gave Ranjay some pretty difficult tasks involving developing on a large convoluted codebase in Rails and then learning Merb/Haml and coding in there. He performed well on these tasks, aside from the time to completion. Some of the delay was certainly our fault due to bugs in infrastructure, but I think he could have been faster by working around infrastructure bugs by employing mocks or fixtures instead of trying to fix our bugs. Also Ranjay was working another large job while working for us, so we couldn't always count on him for full-time work. I think he does good work, but if you want his undivided attention, you'll need to make sure he's not doing any other jobs.
