**Full-time Ruby on Rails Programmer Job Opp**

Hey Guys,

I just joined this group because I am a technical recruiter with Brooksource and I am interested in making Ruby on Rails contacts, and to help programmers find new positions. I currently have a client that is looking for full-time Ruby on Rails programmer. I thought that I would post the job description here in case any of you know of people looking for new positions.

This client is in downtown Nashville and is part of the healthcare industry. I have enclosed to description at the end of this post. If any of you, or your friends would be interested please give me call at 615-292-7543 or shoot me an email at

I look forward to learning more about Ruby on Rails and any networking tips you all might have.


Our client needs a Ruby on Rails Programmer that has developed on Linux or MAC OS. They are going live with their EMR in February or March and are going to be losing one programmer at the beginning of January due to family issues. They are an Agile XP shop and do some paired programming, so this person must be open to that. Also, eventually this programmer should feel comfortable enough to run with things on their own and work off an IRC server. Most of the programmers work from home a few days a week and just VPN in so that is a nice perk down the road too.

Internet Explorer exp is good but Firefox is great. These programmers must be able to take projects and run with them and manage their timelines. This is a crucial time for them so that is important. Previous Design experience and any exposure to Subversion Source control would be a huge bonus.

This job entails the designing, building, deployment and maintenance of an enterprise-wide Electronic Clinical Record (ECR), which is web-based and deployable against three different databases: Oracle 9i, Microsoft's SQLServer, and Postgres 8. This will require knowledge of developing procedures and triggers within one or more of these three database environments. Experience developing both unit tests and functional tests in a web environment is a plus. This position requires a high degree of creativity, not in web-page design, but in developing and debugging 3-tier web applications working in a group context. Being a skilled communicator written and verbal is a necessity. The ability to interpret and translate user requirements requests into sound code and modules is a must. The ability to work comfortably within tight deadlines is important. This job requires a team player with good social skills and personal habits. This person will work under the direction of the Project Manager, and will report directly to the Director of IS Application Development.

Minimum Degree Requirements: BA in Computer Science or a related field.(This may be waived with sufficient experience.) Previous Experience: 3 years related to programming in a web environment.
Primary Language Skills: Ruby, AJAX, and Javascript.
Development Environment: RAILS.
Database Knowledge: SQLServer, or Oracle 9i (or 10g), and/or Postgres 8 (not all three!).
Additional Demonstrated Skills: any of PERL, C or C++, PHP, Apache 2.0, or Lighttpd and FastCGI.. Knowledge of Subversion for code maintenance is a plus. Any experience in writing requirements definitions will be an added plus.
