The North
Face. Oakley. Calloway. These are the brands we work on, and live. As a
full-service agency we don’t do anything—we experience everything. From hiking
to golfing to company snow days slopeside, our creatively rich environment is
pure energy for serious developers. Top talent (passionate risk-takers who love
agile development, pair programming, TDD, BDD and the like), grow, learn,
explore, expand and experiment at FDL.
We’re looking for
someone that not only loves Rails, but also has a desire to understand the inner
workings and underpinnings of the framework. Design driven development is what
we aspire to and BDD is our focus. Our projects move at a fast pace, and
Cucumber and Rspec help keep us honest. We work hard but we don’t take
ourselves too seriously, so be prepared to write a lot of code while sipping
whatever is in the keg this week.
