My wife's business is in need of a full-time Rails contractor for a 6+ month
stint. I'm the original developer of her custom e-commerce application, but
I don't have the time to give it the attention it needs. I wanted to give
the members of the list first crack at this opportunity. The following is
the job description I helped them write. I'm happy to answer any questions
you may have!
*Rails Contractor Needed*
Flex your web development ability and build real business value for a quirky
Cary-based small business. The Green Kangaroo (http://www.tgkdesigns.com)
sells wedding invitations and stationery to a national audience via a
Rails-based custom e-commerce site. This is a paper company that operates
paperlessly - the entire business flows through the web app. The gals
behind "TGK" move fast and have a ton of ideas, wants, and needs - we need a
developer who can keep up!
We're seeking a rounded Rails developer for a 6+ month, full-time contract
to fix, enhance, extend, innovate, deploy, and iterate. Opportunities will
- Translating business needs in to new test-driven features, apps, and tools
- Improving the usability and functionality of existing features
- Slinging both back-end and front-end code
- Selecting technologies and methodologies to get the job done
The right candidate will be able to demonstrate their abilities through a
portfolio of work. It is extremely important that the candidate be
efficient, productive, self-starting, and self-sufficient. The developer of
the existing Rails application will be involved as a guide and mentor.
You'll be able to work wherever and whenever you please, but we strongly
prefer a local candidate who is able to check-in onsite in Cary weekly or
bi-weekly for iteration planning and demonstrations.
To be considered, please email kwklett at tgkdesigns.com with a statement of
why you're a fit, including any supporting materials you wish.
