[job] Three Ruby developers wanted in London, UK

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Sean O'Halpin, Feb 14, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I am looking for 3 permanent top notch Ruby developers - 2 senior and 1
    intermediate - to
    work in central London, UK.

    I head up a small group of programmers who produce business
    applications in-house for a large communications agency
    in the advertising market. Demand for our services is growing
    so we need to expand our team.

    The current platform is Ruby on Rails, running behind Apache 2 on Windows
    The RDBMS is MS SQL Server 2000. In depth knowledge
    of Windows is a bonus but not a requirement. Java/C# is also
    a bonus. Expert Ruby, web development and SQL are an absolute essential.
    Either MS SQL or Oracle is preferred but Mysql/Postgres/etc. only experience
    will be considered if you can demonstrate true expertise.

    Our aim is to retain portability where possible but to make
    the most of the environment where it makes sense.
    There are plans to experiment with Linux so any Linux
    admin and security experience is a bonus.

    We use Open Source as much as possible and plan to Open Source
    our infrastructural components where not business critical.

    We want our applications to be as responsive as possible
    so we are using client side XML + XSLT and remote scripting
    with DHTML widgets so good javascript is required.
    Cross browser is less important but we want things
    to work with Firefox where possible.

    The senior programmers need 5+ years experience in a variety
    of languages and platforms dealing with the full project lifecycle
    in a variety of domains. You will be expected to gather
    requirements, design systems and manage a project
    from start to finish. You will report to me, the System Architect.

    The intermediate programmer will be reporting to one of the seniors and
    have 3+ years experience and be confident in team leading and
    administrative skills. Your role will be to support the seniors
    and to be sysadmin for the team.

    The working environment is demanding but rewarding - fast turnaround
    of quality solutions is our goal. We will work as a team, sharing
    ideas, problems and solutions. Positive experience of
    source control, bug tracking, wikis and other collaboration
    tools will be looked on favourably.

    If this interests you, please send any questions
    you might have to .

    If you want the job, send your CV! Please include
    your salary expectation.

    Sean O'Halpin,
    System Architect
