AutoRevo: Rails Developer

Posted by | June 1, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: Dallas, Texas


Who We Are
AutoRevo is a Dallas based company that builds kick-ass software to help automotive dealerships manage and market their inventory. We’ve been in business for 7 years, are a two-time recipient of the Dallas 100 Award and recently placed #805 on the Inc 5000.
Who We
Are Looking For
We are looking
for truly talented Rails developers with a passion for clean code and
great products. But I’m not going to list 100 technologies you need
to know to join our team. Over the years, we’ve learned a few things
about the type of person that will be happy at AutoRevo. There is
really only a few must-haves. You need to demonstrate the following:
  • You’ve
    worked in one place long enough to have to maintain your own code.
    It’s all rainbows and unicorns when you’ve never had to maintain
    code you’ve written.
  • You are a seasoned Rubyist and have a
    solid knowledge of Rails.
  • You can work well on a team. The
    eccentric developer who prefers to work alone in a dark room won’t
    be happy here.
Other things that
are helpful to know are Capistrano, Git, Linux,
HTML/DHTML/CSS/Javascript, Ajax, JQuery, Nginx,Apache + Phusion
Passenger, Resque.
We care about quality. Writing unit tests
using a modern framework like Shoulda, RSpec, or Cucumber should be
second nature to you. If it’s not, please apply at one of our
We are looking to work with the best. Our
peer. Someone who learns from us as much as we learn from them.
Someone we’ll be proud to say is part of our family and who will play
a large role in pushing AutoRevo forward.
The Tools We Use
We’ll provide you with a shiny Macbook Pro.
TextMate is our editor of choice, but if you prefer Ubuntu and/or
Vim, hey, that works for us, too. But if you like developing on a
Windows rig then you’re probably not the person we’re looking for.
You’ll be expected to know Git (!git=gtfo) and be comfortable with
the *nix command line.
What We Pay
This is a full time position and everyone
who works for us gets paid pretty darn well. We got the usual
benefits such as insurance and a 401k program, too.
How To Apply
So if you are interested in working for a
great company alongside a bunch of really talented developers,
building cool software with the best tools, then please send us:
  • Your github

  • A short description of something really
    cool you’ve worked on – code or tech-related, and preferably as your
    own project rather than something as part of an existing
    job. Perhaps a Ruby gem, or an iPhone app. Something!

  • Your resume. We like to see folks that have some solid work
    history working in a single place for at least a few years and have
    proven they can work on a team.
