The return on investment of an Ivy League education no longer justifies the investment. Just teach these kids some good values and valuable skills, and they'll be fine.

Hi, I'm looking for an experienced Rubyist who really knows their stuff. The project is a web service that helps parents with college savings for their kids. If you're a parent, you know the issues (like tuition outpacing inflation 3:1). If you're not yet a parent but plan to be, better start saving! In a couple years, when you have a baby (perhaps 2013?) + 18 years later (2031), how much will 4 years fully loaded of your child's 1st choice be?
(hint: Harvard tuition this past year was...google: Harvard tuition 2011). Now take into account 3x inflation over 20 years. Then add room/board/ebooks & extras. Now multiply by 4 years.
Looking for an experienced Rubyist who can work with the UX/UI/front-end team & build the back end. It's a very interesting project & definitely serves a social good.
Please be experienced with pointers to your work, resume or whatever way you'd like to express to me that you really do know your stuff.
