The 8 Most Fun Rails Jobs Available Today (August 2008)
From our Rails jobs board comes some amazing sounding jobs this month! I'm almost tempted to emigrate and apply for a few.
The working environments include a gaming startup, a skunkworks at an adult entertainment company, a house in Los Angeles, and the prestigious offices of an NYSE-listed mega-corporation. All the jobs are in the United States - sorry international Rails fans! - from New York to California to Washington to Texas.
Rails Developer for an adult entertainment company (San Diego, CA) - Naughty America needs a great Rails developer for their "skunk works" R&D department. You'll be working on new, exciting projects - many to be revolutionary within the adult industry. You'll need a solid grasp of Ruby, Rails, and UI design. If 37signals sounds like a great place to work, you're the type they're looking for. Benefits include full medical/dental/vision, matching 401k, FSA, flexible hours, and choice of development platform. If helping pioneer new things in the adult industry sounds fun to you, this is one to check out ASAP.
Web Application Developer (Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, CA) - CitrusByte LLC is a Web app development agency headquartered in LA. They want a forward thinking developer who wants to work with similar folks. They need to add several developers to their team. There's no office, but a "McMansion with a BBQ out of back" with a refrigerator full of energy drinks. Yes, this is a lifestyle, not just a job. And, get this, Ari Lerner works there.
Senior Ruby on Rails Developer (New York, NY) - weplay's job ad was written by a member of their development team, not by HR, so it's worth reading. Tthe position is in Manhattan's Chelsea Market building - you get an excellent compensation package including stock options. You should be a solid Rails developer who's into collaboration, pair programming (XP, etc), and jQuery. If the thought of having Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning, and Jennie Finch walking through the office gets your heart racing (I'd be happy just with Jennie Finch, to be honest), get in touch with these guys at techjobs [AT] weplay.com.
Rails Developer for a Web Gaming Start Up (San Francisco, CA or Portland, OR) - Kongregate, the web games startup (whose site is an irresistible honeypot to people who love Flash games), is looking for a Rails developer to join as employee #18. The ideal candidate loves shipping solid code, is a strong Rails developer, is smart, and good at getting stuff done.
Ruby on Rails Programmer (Austin, TX) - OtherInbox, a startup in the e-mail space, is looking for a Rails developer with experience Amazon EC2, S3, and SQS services. A BS degree is required, but all OtherInbox Rails developers get to attend the Lone Star Ruby Conference and RailsConf on the company's dime.
Senior Rails Developer (San Francisco, CA) - Netbooks is a company revolutionizing how small businesses are managed through advanced software. A senior Web developer is required for their experience, agile team to help build Netbooks' SaaS business management applications. This is a team leader level position so people management skills are a plus.
