Subject: [jobs] RoR Developer (Freelancer) @ Wimdu

We are currently seeking RoR Freelancer for a short term project up to 6
months who can start right away. If you are interested in becoming a
part of one of the most advanced startups in this area in Europe,
contact us today!

The Background:
We are Wimdu, a cool start-up headquartered in the heart of Berlin.
Initially funded with $90 million, Wimdu has grown to host over 50,000
properties in over 100 countries worldwide, and is on track to become
Europe’s leading marketplace for private accommodation. Wimdu has the
vision, the passion, and the people to succeed, and we’re looking for
motivated folks to join our international crew.

Your Tasks:

  • You will contribute proactively to a highly agile test-driven
    development process with daily releases and weekly deploys
  • You will change the face of Wimdu by independently developing and
    implementing new features for 50 localized top-level domains that will
    be visited by hundreds of thousands of users
  • You will be involved when it comes to proposing, implementing, and
    developing sophisticated back-end solutions on Rails
  • You follow your own schedule and ideas to improve our platform on one
    day of the week, regardless of company priorities
  • You will visit conferences and meet-ups

The Opportunity:

  • You will contribute proactively to a highly agile test-driven
    development process with daily releases and weekly deploys
  • You will see your code on 50 TLDs with a million uniques per month
  • Company outings to conferences and in-house guest speakers
  • You’ll love it here, if you want to code with a cool bunch of
    international people in a vibrant office, feel challenged and be part of
    one of the most exciting startups in Berlin
  • You’ll hate it here, if you want to climb the corporate ladder, wear a
    suit, love long meetings and like using Windows XP
  • You are a zealous developer with an educational background in the
    field of Computer Science or similar, but passionate career changers are
    also welcome. At the end of the day, what we care about most is your
    personality and the quality of your work.

The Location:
Berlin is ranked among the 10 most liveable cities worldwide, and
according to its Mayor “poor but sexy”. With its unique flair, culture,
history, and party scene, Berlin is probably Europe’s most current
“place to be”. Since 2008 more than 1300[i] internet startups have been
founded in Berlin. Become a part of this startup community and join our
office, located right at the “Maybachufer” in the famous and vibrant
Kreuzberg quarter.

If you are not from Berlin and would have to relocate, we have an HR
team which is more than happy to help you, and your family, with
relocation issues.
