RoR Developer
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 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 10,000 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 Mangment 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 tech-rich urban centers, 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.
