JOB: Job Opportunity (f/t) / Rails Developer

Kickstarter – Rails Developer

We’re looking for a NYC-based Rails developer with a history of
tackling interesting problems and building fun things; someone who
seeks elegant solutions to difficult problems, while still pragmatic
enough to get things done. We love generalists with experience in
every part of the stack and an innate technical curiosity.

You’ll be working on every part of Kickstarter’s back-end, from
infoviz and geolocation to APIs and authentication, alongside our
small team of passionate geeks. A sense of humor, sense of play, and
an open mind are mandatory. And it helps to be well-rounded; it’s no
coincidence that everyone on our team has a background in the arts,
as well as tech.

Candidates should have a strong background in optimizing and scaling
Rails applications, solid understanding of jQuery or equivalent
frameworks, and comfort with cloud computing and the Amazon stack.
Experience with payment systems would be especially handy.

This position is full-time, on-site at our awesome NYC office in the
Lower East Side.

Send us a little something about yourself, along with links to your
personal homepage, resume, and some of the interesting projects
you’ve worked on or contributed to. (Extra credit for a link to your
Github profile.)
