[bioontology-support] Outstanding Software Opportunities (Ruby on Rails) at All Levels

Attention, Smart and Successful Software Engineers: 



My outstanding client offers a rare and exciting opportunity to learn Ruby and Rails on the job. This is a well-funded small company (already profitable) working in the field of GIS "big data". They produce the nation's leading geographical/statistics software and are poised for excellent growth. This is a pre-IPO opportunity offering stock options and competitive salaries and will be located in the general Boston area. If you are hired for this position, you will become an ultimate Ruby on Rails expert and dramatically expand your programming skills. 



They are looking for 1-2 year experienced BS and MS Computer Science graduates (exceptionally talented individuals still in school will be considered) with very good general coding skills, who may not necessarily know Ruby or Rails yet, but would jump at a chance to learn. The candidates should have prior web-based applications development experience and should have code samples that they can provide for evaluation. Ideal candidates would have experience coding in multiple languages, agile environments, Unix data-mining and familiarity with GIS (mapping) software.  



There are also opportunities for more experienced RoR coders with some solid experience, but not much. Please feel free to submit resumes even if you have more than 1 year’ experience and want to dramatically sharpen your Ruby on Rails coding skills. 



Lastly, they are also looking for a Lead RoR Coding expert who will have a ‘walks-on-water’ track-record.  This could be a CTO position, or could be a position groomed to grow into the CTO role.

Must have strong expertise in RoR.  This will definitely be a hands-on role, even at the CTO level.

 



Please submit resume to Nick Meyler at <nickm at wdsearch.com>; Phone (818)597-3200 ext. 211
