Harpua Communications: Seasoned Rails Developer

Posted by | October 10, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: Chicago, IL (but flexible on location)

We
are a Chicago-based startup with a great team who is revolutionizing email.  We’re time travelers with a mission to travel
back to 1995 and save The Inbox, which has been trapped there ever since.  Come help us build out our platform and be an
early member of something BIG.  Our
current team has developed a fully functional prototype, and now we need you to
help us launch!
How
we work:
You
will join a team of polyglots who take pride in owning more hats than we have
people.  We’re battle-worn web developers,
open source enthusiasts, database tinkerers, script kiddies, and dev-ops practitioners
who love taking risks and occasionally blowing our eyebrows off.  Although most of our software is written in
Ruby, we don’t confine ourselves to a single programming language. We believe
in using the best tool for the job while maintaining a slight bias toward the
tools that the team knows the best.
We
are highly iterative and agile with our development practices.  Our people enjoy working with individuals who
value a workplace where software development can move at a rapid pace with early
feedback and free flowing communication. 
We believe in incremental improvement — not Big Bangs.
Responsibilities:
  • Develop current and future web applications for Harpua and our clients
  • Author deliverables such as technical/functional requirements,
    stories/usecases, tests, and application code
  • Active participation in stand-ups, meetings, and design sessions with
    project teams and clients
  • Collaborate with team members, consultants, designers, and clients to
    provide accurate estimations, timelines, and risks associated with development
  • Contribute back to the open-source community through code,
    documentation, and tutorials/speaking
Requirements:
  • Experience with Ruby and Ruby on Rails, Javascript, HTML, CSS, SQL or
    semi-related technologies (i.e. Python / Django / PHP / Symfony)
  • Excellent Written and Verbal communication skills

To apply: Email dklanac@gmail.com if interested.

Write a recursive Ruby function that takes in an integer n and outputs the first n numbers in the Fibonacci sequence in order starting with 0.
