We're a small, funded startup in Boulder, CO looking to hire a Rails
engineer, preferably with Flex experience as well.  We're still in
stealth mode at this point, but I can say that we're targeting the
mapping and GIS consumer markets.  We do have full benefits, including
medical, dental, vision, vacation, and parking.

We're looking for someone in the Denver/Boulder area; no remote/
telecommuting please, and no relocation support.

experience, with recent focus on Ruby and Rails projects, including
distributed development, testing, and deployment.  Strong database
skills are a must.  The candidate will also exhibit an ability for out-
of-the-box thinking and creative solutions to unconventional problems
in a dynamic, exciting environment.

Hi Sean (nice name)
There's no way I'd give up my current job, but you should consider
contracting the company I work for. Universal Mind specializes in Flex
and although they normally use ColdFusion for the backend, there are
people (myself included) with rails experience who would love to work on
rails-flex project.

UM is mostly a service company, and we can fly contractors out to work
your team.

We only have one product, and it happens to be in GIS :) Check out
Key at Hmm, we might even be a competitor --
although we're targeting law enforcement agencies at the moment, so many
would be fine

Let me know if you'd like to be introduced to an account rep or would
more information, and good luck!
