By Peter Cooper / November 20, 2009

Looking for a Ruby or Rails job in this economy? They're still there! They seem to be getting posted daily on but we've got 5 of our own that have come in via the Ruby Inside jobs board.

If you want to post a job to our job board check out our new Post A Job page. It explains it all. It's $249 for 60 days of exposure with a link on all Ruby Inside and Rails Inside pages, exposure through Simply Hired, and inclusion on a post like this that goes out to all 22,000 subscribers. Most ads get 1-2,000 direct views during their run (and linked from about 240,000 pageviews on our sites in all). And if you post before the end of 2009.. we have a discount code 2009deal that gives you $50 off!

On to the jobs:
