Posted by | May 15, 2012 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: San Francisco


Position Overview/ Responsibilities:
At Rovi, the Consumer Web team is building the best online experience in the world of television, music, movies and other video.  We’re looking for a lead Rails engineer to join our fun and talented organization, and take ownership of important parts of our codebase.  Our servers handle well over one million users a day and our developers deal with big data and cool problems.  If you’re interested in pushing Rails to succeed at this level, drop us a line.
Here’s what we do:
  • Design and develop the features and all software related to the,,, and websites.
  • Design and develop RESTful services for internal use.
  • Design and develop important data management and analysis tools that control the ingestion and processing of entertainment content, links, and metadata.
  • Work with Ruby (1.8.7 and 1.9.2), Rails (2 and 3), MySQL, Redis, Memcache, Varnish, Passenger, JQuery, MongoDB, and other associated technologies.
  • Test drive our code, work in pairs, and practice a pragmatic agility.
You should:
  • Have been in a lead engineering position on public Rails sites before – we love fast learners but are really looking for someone who will hit the ground running.
  • Be a full stack engineer — you should be comfortable developing features using  Javascript, Ruby, Rails, and the databases.
  • Understand the motivations behind TDD/BDD and have fluency developing tests and writing code in this fashion.
  • Have a great attitude – we enjoy working together, and hope you will too!
Skills that’ll land you first in the queue:
  • Deep experience with caching & web performance/scalability.
  • A track record of leading or working with Agile (especially Extreme Programming) teams.
  • Strong skills and experience with integration testing and the quirks of Cucumber/Capybara/Selenium.
  • Experience shipping a high-traffic Rails site or publishing a widely used gem.
