Re: [ruby-81] Re: <Job> Ruby Engineer (up to 130k) (Jr-Sr) - 4 Positions New York City full time

Depends if you count the very-nice-to-haves like Mongo, AWS, previous sites scaled to millions of users, etc.

*I* have all the experience they're looking for, but I'm also not looking in NYC.  And the position is "up to 130k", which suggests they're at least somewhat price-sensitive.  Getting somebody with all their "very nice to haves" would be quite difficult in Silicon Valley at that price.  Not sure how the NYC price range compares.

On the other hand, you could get a number of perfectly good Rails programmers for "up to 130k" each in Silicon Valley.  Just not very senior people with leadership ability and all the ancillary experience.

Bala,

I find this job description pretty realistic, personally.  Seems like your typical senior level req, with an average senior level compensation.  Nothing special, but hardly a "needle in the haystack".  I think the more important question, is would you actually want to hire someone less?  Even if they had to throw down an extra 20k / year to get the right resource, money well spent.

the management is smart then they will build a team with members with

realistic.
