Well-funded, adventure travel start-up in the heart of San Francisco seeks senior agile Ruby on Rails developers
Hi from the dev team at zozi.com!  Here’s why you want to work here:
Our development environment
We
are committed to rigorous XP development with a Rails stack.  We have
years of experience applying the full suite of XP practices, including
TDD/BDD, pair programming, and regular refactoring.  We have
retrospectives to help us improve our process, and one week iterations.
Of course, we develop on Macs — and we’re just rolling out sweet pairing stations with dual 27″ monitors.  We’re on Rails 3, We use RubyMine and vim, run rspec integration tests in multiple modes including Selenium, Jasmine-driven Javascript.  We use jQuery, and write most of our JS as jQuery plugins.  We are investigating big data solutions, principally Hadoop. We use Chef to automatically build our production servers in the Rackspace cloud. We use Haml & Sass for our views, and have a great way to organize our Sass. We have a partnership with Facebook to put our activities on their site, along with Facebook integration on our site.  We use Pivotal Tracker for managing priorities, both customer stories and infrastructure tasks, so everyone shares a common view of the project.  
             
We
are looking for great developers, who love XP, to share knowledge, and
have some fun with us!  Must be basically a cool person, who enjoys
pairing every day.  Easy going, drama free, patient are all pluses.
 Passionate — about anything — is a huge plus.
Our Company
Headquartered
in downtown San Francisco, zozi is a fast-growing, venture capital
backed internet consumer services company rapidly becoming the go-to for
the coolest and most unqiue experiences.   Think midnight kayaking,
urban zip lining, scuba diving, cooking schools, and more.  Check us

But
let’s get down to the good stuff…YES, we’re hiring, and we’re excited
about it.  We put a focus on a culture where every single person feels
excited about building this company. The team is incentivized to do
well, and we’re heavily invested in the future of each person. We
realize that talented people have options, and those who choose zozi
mean a whole lot to us. We want you to grow professionally, have a lot
of fun, and be surrounded by the best.
It
is also probably worth mentioning that we offer great perks like a
401K, 100% company paid health benefits, and generous vacation time. We
also offer free excursions in 160 countries, company iPhones, optional
sabbatical time, gym memberships, and a sky-lit office in the heart of
Jackson Square. We also have a dog named Charlie who loves chasing
tennis balls more than life itself.
