RoR Developer, Platform
Do you do Rails in your sleep? Do you really need to find a place that can make use all of your considerable skills and creativity? If so, you just got closer to a great place for you to do your stuff. Read on.
Our mission: make it dead simple for developers to run their apps better/faster/cleaner, every minute of every day. Making it easy for them is, it turns out, hard work for us. It requires creative teamwork and engineering that push the edge of what you might have thought possible.
Customer demand for our SaaS app performance management tools has been growing by leaps and bounds, and we need best-in-class talent to support this growth. If you are right for us you are passionate about addressing customer needs, work well in a distributed team – you don’t just talk about doing test driven development and continuous integration, you have "agile" in your DNA.
To be considered seriously, you will also have:
Built and deployed commercial RoR applications (and you will point us to the sites/services)

A firm grasp of multi-threading, database contention, and object-oriented design.
Experience with user-centered interaction design
A relevant B.Sc./B.A. degree.
Extra credit if you have always had vague suspicion that you should have gone into graphical design and read Tufte when no one is looking.
Our office is in the wonderful urban center of Seattle. We provide competitive compensation (including pre-IPO stock options) and big-company benefits (medical, dental, etc) -- all while maintaining the energy, agility and fun of a start-up.
Be sure to tell us in your cover letter why this is the right job and the right place for you. And include pointers to the sites/services you have built.
