Ruby Programmer Overview

We are looking for someone who is highly motivated, detail-oriented, thorough, always wanting to improve, interacts well with others and can be a valuable contributor to the team with limited supervision. This position could include supporting the team in one or more areas of development, quality assurance, troubleshooting and ongoing improvements/releases of the applications.

You are experienced with:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Testing in Rails
  • Building and consuming APIs and web services
  • Experience in getting a product to production
  • Software design patterns / OOP
  • Some frontend (HTML / CSS / Javascript / jQuery)
