Lead Ruby Engineer / Ruby Architect
Fulltime - Direct HireLos Angeles, CA
this position, you'd be the primary architect for a website that spans
the World. This will mean that you'll drive the technical vision and
implementation of the web and mobile products and manage a team of 7-12
Developers & Engineers that will follow your lead in creating a
truly mega-site (being relied on by users in every time zone.) If you
want to speak on the subject of architecting a worldwide success - this
will certainly give you something big to talk about at RubyConf 2012 or
Day to day tasks will include being the point
of contact for all technical aspects, driving technical design, manage
testing, managing bug fixes & issues, etc. You'll also be the
expert on scaling and performance - advising and creating systems to
scale. Since you're the Lead Engineer, you'll have to manage code
reviews and choose how to structure your team to mentor and grow in each
of their roles. I would think that you're the type that wants to keep
your 'hands in the code' - so you might plan on spending up to 50% of
your time coding too.
If you want to be the driving force in a
company that relies on its digital products to change people's lives,
and you want to create a team environment that jumps at the opportunity
to be technology leaders - this could be the role for you. And we
should talk soon.
This is a worldwide (but semi-small) company
with lofty goals and plenty of backing to make this into something
great. We need to find a Leader that can get excited about it - and
really own it all. This is not an industry giant that 'kinda' wants to
do something great, this is a place that plans on doing something great
If you're located somewhere other than Los Angeles but this
would be the perfect opportunity for you - don't worry about it. We can
work out the details and still make it happen.
Everyone expects a bulleted list of qualifications so I guess I have to throw some down. I'd really expect the right person to:
Technologies in play right now:
- Have leadership experience scaling a web property for incredible increases in capabilities.
- Have a history of directing the design and implementation of cutting edge features from concept to completion.
