[JOB]  Senior Ruby on Rails - UI Developer **NYC Area ONLY**

Company:  doormates
Location: New York City, NY

Start date:  Jan/Feb, 2012


We are looking for a front end RoR developer (HTML5/CSS3/JQ/AJAX with a Ruby CMS) who has an extensive portfolio of Web 2.0 minimal clean sites to join our early stage, well funded, social media start up.  You will have the privilege to pair program with RoR experts at our consulting firm Pivotal Labs in Manhattan, who we will work with the first 3-4 months or more until we transition to our own team.  Salary + equity.  Send resume and portfolio to [address removed].


We seek an internet open source (social media) guru who can work in a lean agile way. 


We are just starting, so you have a clean slate to code our designs from beginning to end.  For the first few months, you will work on-site with our consulting firm (Pivotal Labs in Manhattan), then the project will transition to you and our backend RoR developer. 


The job is full time and comes with a market salary & equity (we are a well funded start up, team of 3, and early stage so you are getting in very early and this is an opportunity for someone to create wealth through early stage stock options).


Who are you?  You are an Internet Tech Savvy Rock Star! You can code pixel perfect, semantic, tableless sites in HTML5/CSS3/JQ/AJAX with Ruby CMS.  You know the latest internet tools and plug ins, technologies, resources, vendors, Web 2.0, mobile apps, social media, etc. and therefore can listen to the business model and spew back the perfect tech architecture in a nano second.  You’ve worked in Agile and love it.  You've worked with content management platforms, have developed custom internet apps, know the ins and outs of internet advertising, ecommerce, etc.


You loath corporate environments that reward mediocre work; instead, you’d rather blaze your own trail and work smart and efficiently hoping to be rewarded by yours and the company’s rapid success.


You are a creative, self-starter, self-sufficient, detailed, work-a-holic, and out of the box thinker who ‘gets-it’ when it comes to merging tech goals with business goals.


You have done this before; built an internet platform from the ground up.  You've managed a technical development team who has built a platform from start to finish, and you can generate confidence that you'll build ours on time, in budget...and you'll do it.


You have a keen interest in Social Media.  You like cool.




•Define the UI architecture of our system.

•Write pixel perfect code as the lead UI developer.




•Participate as a key member of the Management Team to ensure business and technology strategy are aligned

•Maintain a fast paced agile development environment that stimulates innovation, creativity and free thinking




•Min -undergraduate degree (technical preferred)

•2-5+ years of internet technology development experience on open source platforms (Ruby on Rails, HTML5/CSS3, AJAX, JQ)

•A complete understanding of Internet. Video, Chat, Internet Advertising, Java, Ajax, RoR, all Internet technologies, Object  Oriented development and database management

•Proven professional ability to perform in a consultative manner with strong communication skills and presentation style




We are blazing a new trail in a niche area of Social Media.  It hasn't been done before.  It's cool, relevant, and has potential to be very big.  We are very well funded and have an awesome team who is laid back, whip smart, and really cool.  We are in Manhattan and always will should be too, or at least very close and willing to commute in.


You are getting in early, the team is small, we all enjoy working together, we are all top in our game and want you to be should be fun.  We can't tell you much more other than it'll be a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a super cool well funded start up for whomever we hire.
