Ruby on Rails Developer

at Jetsonify in Cambridge, MA   —   Apr 03, 2014   |  
Overview
Let’s face it. You’ve always dreamed of working with a start-up from the ground up where your brilliant design ideas could be applied to a wicked cool new product. We’re talking about a product that will not only revolutionize an industry, but more importantly for your sake, one that you and your friends will use, and one that you’ll be happy to brag about. Sound intriguing?
If you think you’ve got enough spunk and also possess some mad skills, keep reading.

We are looking for a Senior level web developer to join the Jetsonify team immediately. The right individual will have experience using Ruby on Rails extensively, have an excellent knowledge of Javascript, HTML, CSS, and experience in TDD (test driven development). As a key member of the Jetsonify team, you will be responsible for building innovative web and, hopefully mobile, applications and solutions. You will be passionate about ensuring the delivery of high quality software and manage the staging and release cycles of multi, concurrent branches.

Jetsonify is currently operating in “stealth mode” for the time being, but feel free to get in touch for more info if you think that you’re the rock star that we’re looking for. Ideally we’d love for someone to join our team full time in Cambridge/Boston, MA. But seeing as how life is rarely ideal, we’d also be open to talking to designers in San Fran or Atlanta. If you’re reading this and you’re outside of these areas but still think you deserve a shot at the title, we’ll entertain your plea for working virtually if you make an impressive case for us to consider, in 3 sentences or less.
