7 Cool Rails Jobs for March 2009
If you're a Rails developer, the current recession needn't be too hard.. well, depending on where you live! There are quite a few good Rails jobs going out there. If you're looking for one you're in the right place! Recently we've had several Rails-focused positions added to the Ruby jobs board.
On with March's interesting opportunities:
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.
Experienced Rails Developer (London, UK): New Bamboo, one of the UK's top Rails development teams, is looking for a Ruby and Rails expert to join their London-based team.
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.
Rails Developer (New York, New York): Roomorama is a real-estate Web site based in New York City looking for a senior Rails developer to join their team. Their site is a platform for people to manage short-term property rentals (both offering and finding). You'll need Rails experience (with portfolio), PayPal, and credit card gateways. Test driven development is a must-have.
Ruby on Rails Badass (Denver, Colorado): VideoPros.com is a Denver-based startup that provides video services to everyone. They're a progressive company (complete with office ping-pong games) and are looking for someone who "doesn't mind rolling up their sleeves, getting a little dirty and enjoying one helluva good ride." You'll need good experience with Rails, naturally, and be ready to use Git, Linux, MySQL, XML and work in an Agile environment off the bat.
