Sr Ruby on Rails Dev / ATL Startup @ Silicon Valley Accelerator

A former member
Post #: 1

We are an Atlanta-based social media startup. We’re creating a social platform that redefines how people engage corporate and political brands and personalities via the web. We were recently accepted into the Silicon Valley-based NewME Accelerator, and featured in TechCrunch. We’re looking for a sr developer to bring our revolutionary idea from inception and design to a soft launch - in preparation for our November Demo Day, where we’ll be pitching our company to VCs in Silicon Valley for a seed/Series A round.


We’re looking for a developer with the following qualifications:

* Ruby on Rails (primary), HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX, SQL (Postgres, MySql, etc.)
* Ideally 5+ years of development experience and 2+ years with RoR experience in a commercial environment and a software engineering background
* Pluses: AWS/Rackspace Cloud, Facebook/Twitter API, git/GitHub, statistical analysis
* Non-technical qualities: We’re looking for someone who can balance perfectionism, practicality and performance and is able to work independently with a remote team. That person must be a self-learner with excellent interpersonal and communication skills.

We’re seeking a full-time commitment, but we’re open to working with someone seeking a moonlighting role (at least 24 hours per week). Our compensation is equity-driven till we raise our first round. Come join us in building something special.

Email us at jobs(at)plisten(dot)com with your cover letter, resume and a brief “elevator pitch” on why you’d be the right fit for Plisten.
