Hello NYC Rubyists,
After five years at my current position at Getty Images, and three at the company before it which got bought out, I 'm leaving to head up technology at VFILES
, a fashion/media startup looking to carve out a niche for fashion professionals and enthusiasts with a combination of original and partner content. I'm very excited- it's great people in a cool atmosphere. We work out of our studio in SoHo. The site is being built on Rails and is pre-beta, we're going to be launching in a couple of weeks. We're doing some exciting stuff in both the data and ux space, looking to create unique, focused experiences based on various factors and our own editorial staff.
I'm looking for a Rails developer to join our team and wanted to reach out to the community to get the word out. If you're strong in another language and are looking for to focus on Rails full time, don't fret- I've-gasp-spent most of career leveraging .NET and am really excited to be focusing on Ruby full time (I've been using Ruby outside of work for the past couple of years).
Hopefully we'll be ready to show off the platform at an upcoming meetup!
