We have a small Social Network web application, which is being built with Ruby on Rails framework. We are a small web development team in the U.S, and we're looking to add in another back end developer to our team dedicated to this project. Our reason for seeking a new addition to the team, is because one of our back end developers had to leave due to family reasons. Although he still continues to help out, we still need a full time replacement.
Basically, this is a great for us to get to know you. If you love web development as much as we do, and enjoy working in a small group where YOU get to be part of big decisions, then this is the perfect project for you. If you can show us that you are skilled, we will hire you fulltime as a hourly employee.
Who are we looking for?
We also prefer that you are open to feed back, and are open to give us your feed back, and are overall flexible, and have a good attitude. You should also be self motivated. We're not looking to babysit anyone.
As you bid, please try to post your previous works. Also, pleas only apply if you have extensive skills with Ruby and ROR -- we're not looking for PHP developers who are "looking to learn"...sorry.
What is the project?
We will tell you the project details once you're hired, but know that you wont' be starting from scratch. You will pick up on where we currently are in the development phase.
We're very flexible with the bids, but please stay within our budget range as listed. If you have any questions, let us know, we'd more than happy to answer.
Happy applying :)
