5 Hot Rails Jobs for February 2009

By Peter Cooper / February 24, 2009

Looking for a job where you can work on Ruby and Rails apps? You're in the right place! Recently we've had several Rails-focused positions added to the Ruby jobs board.

February's interesting opportunities (they're all Rails ones this time..):


Experienced Rails Developer (London, UK): New Bamboo, one of the UK's top Rails development teams, is looking for a Ruby and Rails expert to join their London-based team.

viscape.pngSenior Software Engineer (Telecommuting): Viscape, an innovative travel site for vacation properties and second homes, is looking for a software engineer to design, develop, test, repair and maintain site features and functionality as required by a Web 2.0 application based on Ruby on Rails. You'll be leading mid-sized to large projects, need to serve as a mentor for other developers, and have experience of agile methods of development. Viscape is based in Arlington, Virginia but you are not required to move to them so telecommuting is an option.


Senior Ruby on Rails Developer (San Mateo, California): Zvents is an events listing site based in California. They're looking for an eager Rails developer who knows their way around Ruby and Rails well and has previous experience working on a production, high-traffic Web site. Knowledge of jQuery is desired. Their stack is oriented around Rails, Merb, Nginx, Thin, MySQL, Hypertable and Solr. Flexible working arrangements are offered. Click here to learn more.

Their site is a platform for people to manage short-term property rentals (both offering and finding). You'll need Rails experience (with portfolio), PayPal, and credit card gateways. Test driven development is a must-have.

videopros.png Ruby on Rails Badass (Denver, Colorado): is a Denver-based startup that provides video services to everyone. They're a progressive company (complete with office ping-pong games) and are looking for someone who "doesn't mind rolling up their sleeves, getting a little dirty and enjoying one helluva good ride." You'll need good experience with Rails, naturally, and be ready to use Git, Linux, MySQL, XML and work in an Agile environment off the bat.

If you're a US-based company looking to hire Ruby and Rails developers and you're in the US, head over to the job board too - it costs $250 for 60 days of exposure, and your jobs get featured in a post (or two) like this too! If you're not in the US, the job board won't work, but contact us directly and we can sort a more personalized mention out.

Still looking for a job? There are even more over at RubyNow's jobs section and on the 37signals Job Board!

P.S. Update! A really awesome opportunity has come up at the National Events Company in New York. You can either work locally or telecommute, and you'll be leading the entire Web development presence at a 50 employee company. Great benefits. Check it out.
