Rubyists,

My company, VetsEz, is currently looking for two Rubyists who enjoy
riding the rails!

The first position is for your standard RoR dev position.  The salary
range is 110-120k.  The second position, is an architect/dev/scrum
master role and carries a salary of 120-130k.

Both positions are 100% remote and open to any US citizen working in the
US.
I am including both job descriptions below.  As you read them, keep in
mind they were written by someone in HR who needs to be beaten to death
with a shovel.  They require things you couldn’t possibly have unless
you are already here.  I realize this, and I will say if you are the
type of person that prides yourself on being a producer, by doing actual
real work, you know you have a talent for Ruby, and that delightful
framework we call Rails then consider applying.  If you are able to
self-teach yourself what you don’t know, consider applying.  If you have
health care experience that is a bonus, but I had I had none the day I
started and some of us here realize that too!

Email me your resume if interested:
cristopher.shupp@vetsez.com

A real person will read it.

Sincerely,
Cris Shupp
