My firm has been brought on board to assist a global software giant
within the financial industry with their immediate need to hire 2-3 of
the top Ruby on Rails experts in the country.

This is a ground floor opportunity to build an entirely new Web
Presence for one of the world’s leading organizations. The company
dominates their business areas already, and is now looking to create a
next generation web site and functionality that will help drive them
forward into additional business verticals and capitalize on their
existing business and massive success.

You will join a newly formed team whose strategy and vision is being
led by former leaders of Yahoo, McKinsey, and several high powered
media firms!

We have a need to hire the best Web Architecture and Development
talent that we can find. If you are a technical hobbyist that is
passionate about researching, playing with, and implementing the
newest technology that you can find… then we want to talk to you. We
are looking for creative builders with energy and passion for the
internet. As members of this highly visible and well backed team, you
will be called upon to bring ideas on what works and how to put it all
together. These are all hands on roles that require not only internet
thought leaders, but also experienced and proven technical coders.

We need people with real production experience (not just self-study or
small pet projects) of deploying a website /web product beginning to
end. We are looking for full SDLC experience on both Front and Back
End development of unique and innovative sites and products.

Technology direction is still very much open, but skills in the
following are ideal: ROR, REST, HTTP, Passenger, Nginx, Capistrano,
Xhtml, Javascript, JQuery, Linux, Java, JEE, MySQL, JUnit, detailed
understanding of OOD, MVC

This is a unique opportunity as it is a chance to reinvent, build from
scratch, and create the architecture & development environment that
will be the foundation for years to come. This has the feel and
energy of a start up, it is highly visible and financially and
strategically backed.
