Cyrus Innovation is hiring Ruby developers of all levels.
Cyrus is a small (~30 people) XP/Agile consulting firm based in SoHo. We provide XP teams on demand to both startups and enterprise organizations. We care more about your capacity to learn and your enthusiasm for clean code than how many years of experience you have with a given programming language.
Cyrus Developers work as consultants on existing client-side development teams to assist in the design, development, and deployment of complex software applications, while concurrently suggesting and implementing agile software development practices such as (but not limited to) test driven development, pair programming, continuous integration, scrum, and kanban, based on team and client specific challenges. Work is typically completed on-site with the client, and projects can last anywhere from several weeks to several years. Cyrus developers work closely with clients to plan and estimate work, suggest technical standards and approaches, and gather constant feedback on the priorities and direction of a project. Many projects are complex in nature and scope, requiring a deep understanding of computer science concepts, and an ability to quickly pick up new technologies and tools.
Our philosophy is based on maintaining a high quality of life for our developers both in and out of work. We offer 40 hour work weeks, 4 weeks per year dedicated to professional development (conferences, workshops, learning a new programming language -- it's up to you), generous compensation and benefits (401(k), medical, dental, vision), and most importantly a casual and transparent environment where your ideas are taken seriously.
