New Relic: RoR Developer – Front End

Posted by | December 6, 2011 | Web Professional Jobs Blog

Location: Portland, OR


Do you do Rails in your sleep? Do you
really need to find a place that can make use all of your
considerable skills and creativity? If so, you just got closer to a great place
for you to do your stuff. Read on.
Our mission: make it dead simple for
developers to run their apps better/faster/cleaner, every minute of every day.
Making it easy for them is, it turns out, hard work for us. It requires
creative teamwork and engineering that push the edge of what you might have
thought possible.
Customer demand for our SaaS app
performance management tools has been growing by leaps and bounds, and we need
best-in-class talent to support this growth. If you are right for us you are
passionate about addressing customer needs, work well in a distributed team,
and have “agile” in your DNA – you don’t just talk about doing test
driven development and continuous integration, it’s the only way you know how
to work. 
To be considered seriously, you will
also have:
  • Built and deployed commercial RoR
    applications (and you will point us to the URLs) 
  • Strength in all the Rails
    fundamentals (routing, active record, migrations, modules, bundles
  • A demonstrable knowledge of
    Javascript and CSS (again, URLs) 
  • A firm grasp of multi-threading,
    database contention, and object-oriented design. 
  • Experience with user-centered
    interaction design
  • A relevant college degree or
    equivalent experience
  • A vague suspicion that you should
    have gone into graphical design (you’re probably a Tufte fan)
Little About Us
We are passionate, possibly even crazy,
about application performance management (APM). Our mission is to make web
applications run better, to make the internet more productive, and to make life
easier for developers and devops. We are turning the APM marketplace upside
down by providing SaaS products that deliver high-value functionality
previously only available through enterprise software. We are well above 12,000
customers. And with your help we’ll get to 10x that number.
New Relic is a Top 100 OnDemand
Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN);
10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld); the list of accolades
goes on. More important, we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn,
high quality teammates, a great product, a company on the move, and . . . the
freedom to do your work the way only you can do it.
Our offices are in the tech-rich urban
center of Portland, with easy commute access and a plethora of good eats. We
provide competitive compensation (including pre-IPO stock options) and
big-company benefits (medical, dental, etc), while maintaining the energy,
agility and fun of a start-up.
Be sure to tell us in your cover letter
why this is the right job and the right place for you. And include your URLs.
New Relic is most decidedly an equal
opportunity employer. We want applicants of diverse background and hire without
regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry,
citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic
protected by law.
