nFrame, too, is still looking for a Ruby on Rails developer. Come work
with me (@unixmonkey)!

We are seeking a competent Ruby on Rails programmer to assist in the
development of our internal, integrated web applications. Our stack
includes Ruby, Rails, Javascript (Prototype.js), Ferret, DelayedJob,
Git, and SQLServer and MySQL. Aside from SQL Server, our servers are
built on CentOS, so some Linux knowledge would be handy. We are an
(loosely) agile team using a style heavily influenced by Pivotal
Tracker. We practice collective ownership of the code, and we don't
specialize, so you must do a bit of everything -- architect, code,
test, refactor, and repeat; work with project owners; write
Javascript; write Ruby; write CSS, XHTML and ActiveRecord SQL; etc.

I'm not requiring a wizard, ninja, or rockstar or any of those other
strange terms that mean absolutely nothing in the software industry;
but I do want someone who can think clearly about schema design and is
comfortable enough with Rails-isms and
common libraries that the first 6 months aren't all hand-holding. We
deliver what is equivalent to a small product every month or so; and
our app is large, but modular and current thanks to Rails, clean
design, high test coverage, refactoring and care.

We are a company of laid-back, friendly people who enjoy what they do.
This is a full-time 40-hour a week in-office job, but hours are
flexible. We have a quiet office with a door.

Our team will be building primarily upon our internal ticketing,
quoting and accounting system. We build stuff to get paper and
processes from offline or other crappy systems like spreadsheets to
the database to make record keeping and visibility into business
simpler and less error-prone. Make vital customer information
available instantly from many avenues for our support staff, and
documentation for change control and customer record. Also, we don't
have anything to do with the website at www.nframe.com - so don't use
that as an indicator of what our team does.

Our company also sponsors the meeting space (in our disaster recovery
center) for the Indianapolis Ruby Brigade (http://indyrb.org­ &
http://meetup.com...­) monthly meetup. I am personally very proud
of our local Ruby and Rails community.
