I am a Partner in the NY Technology Division of a 35 year old professional recruiting firm named Winter, Wyman & Co. One of my best clients in the city is a recognized leader in the world of Luxury Fashion/Retail. I have placed 2 employees with their Global Head of eBusiness over the past year and he's got an immediate opening for a Web Engineer, ideally with Ruby experience. He is leading migration effort to move his entire web platform from a Microsoft environment over to a R/R platform. They have a small development team in NYC that is responsible for all consumer-facing web dev efforts.
This would be a great opportunity to deepen existing Ruby skills, but it could also be an excellent opportunity to build your Ruby experience because he will consider developers with a good base in OO programming (Java or .Net). This is a full-time opportunity and he's in the midst of some pretty aggressive interviewing right now, so reply quickly if this sounds of interest. You can send your resume or an email to me at [address removed]
Look forward to hearing from you.
