9 Top Rails Jobs for April 2009
No matter how long the recession drags out for, there seems to be no let up at all on the Rails job front - especially if you're near San Francisco or New York (but we have telecommuting positions listed too!). And.. if you're looking for one you're in the right place! We've had several Rails-focused positions added to the Ruby jobs board.
So.. on with April's interesting opportunities:
Ruby Zen Master (San Francisco, CA): Get Satisfaction is a "people-powered customer service" powerhouse. They help bring customers and companies together to resolve problems. They're looking for smart, dedicated people with a passion for building great software to work at their South Park, San Francisco offices. You need to be a Ruby master and good with Rails.

They're looking for a full-time Ruby and Rails developer to help them get started on a brand new forex (currency exchange) Web site.

Senior Web Applications Developer (San Francisco, CA): Gobalto is a startup developing a social media portal for the pharmaceutical development industry. They're looking for someone with significant Rails experience (with Python/Java) and several years professional development experience. In return, the compensation package is in the $100-$120k range.
Back-End Rails Engineer (at the largest Rails site on the Web) (San Francisco, CA): They might not like the comparison but Scribd is, to me, the "YouTube for documents." Scribd is one of the biggest Rails sites out there (the largest, they claim) and they need a back-end Rails engineer in downtown San Francisco. As well as the usual Rails credentials, they're looking for strong SQL knowledge and, ideally, C++ experience.
Senior Web Developer, Front End (New York, NY): ASMALLWORLD is an invitation-only social networking site formed of culturally influential people who are all connected by three degrees (Ed: Hey, why wasn't I invited? :-)). They have a small, tight-knit group of developers and are looking for a Rails developer to work on their front-end of their site.
Senior Software Engineer (Telecommuting): Viscape, an innovative travel site for vacation properties and second homes, is looking for a software engineer to design, develop, test, repair and maintain site features and functionality as required by a Web 2.0 application based on Ruby on Rails. You'll be leading mid-sized to large projects, need to serve as a mentor for other developers, and have experience of agile methods of development. Viscape is based in Arlington, Virginia but you are not required to move to them so telecommuting is an option.
Senior Ruby on Rails Developer (San Mateo, California): Zvents is an events listing site based in California. They're looking for an eager Rails developer who knows their way around Ruby and Rails well and has previous experience working on a production, high-traffic Web site. Knowledge of jQuery is desired. Their stack is oriented around Rails, Merb, Nginx, Thin, MySQL, Hypertable and Solr. Flexible working arrangements are offered. Click here to learn more.
If you're a US-based company looking to hire Rails developers and you're in the US, head over to the job board like the companies above - it costs $250 for 60 days of exposure, and your jobs get featured in a post (or two) like this too (on both Ruby Inside and Rails Inside - a total readership of 23,000 readers). If you're not in the US, sadly our job board partner's restrictions mean the job board won't work, but contact us directly and we can sort a more personalized mention out!
