Ruby on Rails RoR Developer/Programmer/Software Engineer - Social Network/Philanthropy Start Up

My client is an ambitious Los Angeles-based start up with some ground-breaking plans to shake up the social web space. They are in the process of building a large-scale mass-market consumer service, across both web & mobile platforms, which will ultimately change the future of social networking.

A technologically-driven company, they pride themselves on being at the forefront of technological advancement, so there is the chance to work with a range of the latest features in a stimulating and fast-moving work place.

This is an opportunity for a talented, well rounded technologist, with skills in both front and back end web development (ideally specialising in Ruby / Rails) to build advanced user interface, core back end components & features that cut across both, with the potential to be used by millions of users worldwide.

The ideal candidate looks something like this:
  • You've used Ruby and Rails in a commercial environment and you're very knowledgeable about the common frameworks and libraries
  • You can show examples of creating interactive components or widgets using hand-coded JavaScript, communicating with a server
  • You're an experienced software engineer and have worked in a team; familiar with git, agile development practices, code reviews
  • You understand the concepts behind object-oriented CSS and understand frameworks such as LESS or Sass
And you'll receive bonus points for this:
  • Experience with node.js and server-side JavaScript
  • Working on your own interesting open source projects
  • Experience with NoSQL databases such as MongoDB
The successful applicant will be joining a small innovative team, handpicked for their versatility, skill & desire to make a huge impact in a growing industry. The working environment is friendly, informal and highly collaborative, whilst being technically sharp. There is great potential to develop new skills and learn new technology, as part of an exciting, growing company.

Technology is at the heart of what they do, so hiring top-notch developers is key to their success.
