Media Gobbler: Startup Rails Developer (Senior)

Posted by | August 21, 2010 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: Hollywood, CA


Us: A small, well-funded startup making a killer app for the music industry.
You: Love building rich web apps in Rails, and have  a track record of success.  Want to play with lots of interesting technologies like MongoDB, Node.js, and Redis.  Live in LA, or are willing to relocate.
We’re a startup — so we’re looking for the kind of person who is capable and passionate about taking on a wide variety of challenges.  We just launched into private beta, so you’ll be able to get in at the ground floor and have a huge impact.
Your work might involve building the consumer-facing side of the web application, working with the internal APIs used by our desktop client, devising a migration strategy for schema objects, or even building out a public API for external developers.  We’re working at a breakneck pace adding cool new features and growing our userbase — so we’re looking for someone who can handle anything that’s thrown at them.  Fortunately, we can afford to pay a premium for someone like yourself who can come in and kick ass alongside us.  And our founders are extremely well-connected to the music industry — so you can expect a lot of interesting scalability challenges once the recording industry’s biggest artists start promoting it.
– Experience building and scaling successful web applications in a web framework like Rails, Merb, or Sinatra
– Great knowledge of Ruby
– Have a firm grasp on the whole web stack – web servers, reverse proxies, databases, long poll, caching, etc
+ Javascript, both the good and bad parts
+ Have built an app with NoSQL in the past
+ Experience with C++ (which powers our client apps) and socket programming
+ Linux system administration experience
This is a full-time position working in our Hollywood (CA) offices.  Please, no recruiters.
