Senior Ruby Developer

One of the top music startups of the year is looking for you! Join us and help change the way we share social content.

Headliner.fm is a breakthrough application that disrupts the rules of sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms. We help artists to reach andengagenew fans like never before, reaching over 300 million fans, 20 million people daily. In a little over 1 year, we have become the number one in-stream sharing platform on the social web. But don't take it from us: we were ranked #4 in Billboard's 10 Top Music Startups of 2011. We've got huge scale potential and serious traction and are looking for a senior developer to join our team.

Culture is crucial to our organization. We are looking for people who live to work and share our passion and vision. We believe in science, evidence, testing and each other. If you're interested in working in an extremely low-bureaucracy but high-impact environment, this is the place for you!

Technologies we use:
Our app is built on a Ruby on Rails, MySQL and Redis backend with a Javascript front-end. We use continuous integration server with automated tests. We vastly prefer open source tools and aren't afraid to work on the cutting edge. We believe that to make cool stuff you have to move fast and break things.

Skills and Requirements:
We're looking for people who have enjoyed building systems and have solved hard problems. Object-oriented programming should be second nature to you.

You should be comfortable working in a team environment, as well as by yourself. We are looking for someone who can manage their own workflow, write specifications, discuss business strategy, and set project goals. Enthusiasm for collaborative development is a must.

Required Skills:
- Solid knowledge and experience with Ruby on Rails and JQuery.
- Solid understanding of MySQL and Redis (or something similar)
- Experience with RESTful APIs
- Version control systems, preferably Git

Pluses:
- Experience with Ext JS framework
- Experience developing under *unix systems.
- Experience with Nginx

Salary and Compensation:
We are well funded and pay above average for NYC-based startups, as well as offer a generous equity package and bonuses and other great perks. (We like to eat well!)

How To Apply:
You must have code you've written that runs and that you can show us. Extra bonus points if it's an open source project. We don't really care what language it was written in (however, we will try to not only run it but understand it). Send it over to us with an email to [address removed] briefly explaining who you are and what kind of job you're looking for along with your resume.
No Recruiters, please!
