[JOB] Senior (J)Ruby on Rails Developer - $150k

From: Jason
Sent on: Thursday, April 17, 2014 9:16 AM

The Job

This job is onsite at our company headquarters in New York, NY; No new visa sponsorship is possible.

In this role, you will:
- Build agile: Designing and implementing features in our existing Rails applications, turning around features and fixes each sprint
- Build well: Adhere to and suggest best practices to maintain robust, fault tolerant systems with unit test coverage, clear comments and accurate documentation
- Build for scale: Learn how our JRuby servers that service tens of thousands of requests per minute scale to meet demand atop Amazon Web 

Why Us

The question you have to ask yourself is, which one of these job postings is the one that will move your career forward. Where will you get the chance to make your mark? To be a leading committer, to build products that will disrupt an industry?

Here at Jun Group, we’ve got 99 problems for you to solve, but our business model ain’t one. You'd be coming in at the inflection point of an established digital advertising firm. We work for the biggest brands in the world: Coke, Activision, Chevy, McDonald’s, Kraft, etc. We reach tens of millions of users, and we put them in control on desktops, tablets, and smartphones. We're in the throes of high growth - the opportunities for ownership are everywhere.

Our work environment is fun and exciting. We care deeply about what we do, but nobody dies when we frack up. We work hard, enjoy each other's company, throw the odd party in our 27th floor office, and we have meaningful lives outside of work.

Compensation - $150,000

  • Participation in the company economic incentive plan
  • Great medical covreage


  • JRuby specialization for those coming from Java or other interpreters
  • Annual budget for self-directed training
  • Internal Hackathons

Who will be happy here

We’re looking for an enthusiastic technologist that wants to advance the state of the art. There is no try. We need a driven individual that will rise to the challenge of becoming a team leader. We’re a polyglot team and platform; you can come to this from any background, just like we did. JRuby and Amazon Web Services are the current centers of gravity. Java (server-side and Android), JavaScript and Objective-C are used here today as well; helping determine what the list will be tomorrow will be among your many contributions.

The force is strong with you in these areas:
- Samples of elegant, interesting and well documented code in your favorite language
- War stories about building for scalability
- Patches accepted into the open-source projects that you use most often
- Developing content or applications for mobile devices
