Ruby Engineer - Contract

Are you interested in trying your hand at Ruby?  Do you have several years of experience but nothing concretes enough to get you the interview at a pure Rails shop? 

That being said, you can’t be a newbie in the tech space. You must have experience building out custom applications or platforms, utilizing object-oriented principles. You understand MVC and have experience using a MySQL or PostgreSQL database. If need be, you can get your hands dirty on the front-end too, utilizing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with jQuery.  You are ready and willing to do heavy back-end coding for their web-based application, all while learning one of the hottest languages out there. 

They exclusively use Ruby on Rails on the server-side with Rspec and Cucumber for testing.  On the front-end they actually use Sproutcore which is an extremely robust Javascript framework that allows for desktop functionality on a web-based application similar to what Cocoa does for iPhones.  

Required Skills & Experience

·        Experience in an open source language (PHP, Python, Java, Ruby)

·        MVC

·        HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with jQuery

·        MySQL or PostgreSQL experience

·        In depth experience with Rails would be a plus

·        A strong understanding of object oriented JavaScript and the newest libraries would be a plus

Desired Skills & Experience

·        Knowledge of test driven development is nice to have

·        Experience in an Agile Environment

Benefits & Perks

As a contractor you will receive the following benefits:

·        Medical Insurance & Health Savings Account (HSA)

·        401(k)

·        Paid Sick Time Leave

·        Pre-tax Commuter Benefit
