JOB POST: why is it so hard to find a Ruby Rails developer for a job in Downtown NYC?

Hello,
I thought when I posted this ad on craigslist, I’d get a lot of
responses,
but I haven’t. Why is that? Are good RR dev folks like you that hard to
come by?
Anyway, this is a great forum.

JOB POST:
Are you tired of contract work? I am looking for a RUBY RAILS developer
for
a full-time position at a new division of a leading web company
(Move.inc),
in the Union Square section of New York City. The team uses a webstack
with a mix of new technologies that deploy code as quickly as possible.
Core infrastructure is Ruby on Rails, Javascript/Coffeescript, jQuery,
SQL,
Resque, Heroku, and Git.

You must have a passion for clean, test-driven, and well-documented
code,
and be comfortable with occasional pair programming; consumer-based
features and collaborate with Product Management and User Experience.
Develop best practices and architecture.

Skills & Experience requires 2-4 years of web application development
experience and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or
equivalent real-world experience. Knowledge and experience with standard
testing tools, including RSpec, Capybara, and Jasmine. Familiarity with
the
full Rails stack, including database, web service and web front-end
development. Mobile experience highly desired. You must enjoy
collaborating and be passionate about creating world class consumer web
experiences.

If you are interested in learning more about this offering, please send
me
your resume and I will send you more details. This is not a “remote”
job.
In-house position only. I am not a full-time recruiter. My partner and
I
own small IT shops and occasionally staff people when the job can not go
out-of-house. Send me a note and I’ll explain further. If you can
commute
to downtown and like working with a team, you won’t find a better offer.
Tell me about your Ruby R. experience.

My problem is “why is it so hard to find a REMOTE RoR job??” :slight_smile:

For remote work, try weworkremotely.com. It was started in conjunction
with the book Remote which was authored by Jason Fried & David
Heinemeier
Hansson.

In terms of finding in-house people for a job in New York, you have some
competition. I can’t speak for everyone, but I don’t look at Craigslist
and I’m not sure many developers do. Most of the developers I’ve seen
hang
out here, ruby-forums, and stack overflow. Stack overflow has a careers
board that lists 435 Ruby on Rails jobs. Brandon, some of these are
remote
positions as well. You should also probably hit Twitter with the tag
#rubyonrails.

+1 on that – it would never have occurred to me to look at Craigslist
for work, full-time or otherwise.

I do look at Craigslist for jobs, and have used it to hire developers
also;
especially part-timers.

Markets are probably different; Pittsburgh Craigslist has a fair amount
of
jobs listed there, but I notice that other cities don’t seem to.

If you are a senior Ruby dev and are looking for remote work, I know of
a
great job in Atlanta. (I am not a recruiter. I am also a Ruby dev.) Drop
me
a line and I can make connections.

I am going to go ahead and say it…

Rails and web devs in general do not look at craigslist for a job. If
they
do… you don’t want to hire them anyways.

@ Martin I’m looking for a remote job. [email protected], can you let me
know how to apply for it?

The reason is simple, Move, inc. Is a terrible place to work. I am
guessing
that this is for the recently acquired company, Doorsteps. If that is
the
case, try to place an ad for them instead. Nobody wants to work for a
tech
company stuck in 1999 like Move/Realtor.com.
