Stealth-mode company seeking Ruby on Rails Web Dev... (Job)

From: Leif B.

Hey All,


I work for Function(x) (, a technology driven media company that will re-define the way people consume traditional media (think television, radio, etc.) and entertainment each and everyday.  The mobile platform will be a huge component of our business.


Right this very moment, we have a lot of brand new development to offer Engineers/Developers.  We're looking for outstanding Software, Mobile and Web Engineers.  You'll help us design, develop and launch these mobile and web products from scratch.


Since this is a Ruby mailing list, there are probably quite a few RoR Web developers here.  We would target you towards that type of role, however, we're in start-up mode (although we're fully capitalized and publicly traded under the symbol FNCX) so you should expect to wear multiple hats, caps, sombrero's - whatever you fancy.


We’re in the process of building a great team ( of technologists to support a great idea – we’re not afraid to choose the best technology for the job, from Java to Node.js to Ruby On Rails.   We use open source and want our engineers to contribute back to the projects we use.  Our development processes are agile and transparent.


We're led by Geir Magnusson (, an internationally known leader and advocate in the open source space.  He's founded several significant open source projects such as Apache Geronimo and Apache Harmony.


If building new products from the ground up, that will potentially be used by millions of Americans (and beyond), and working on a growing team of technologists with world class leadership interests you, then we should talk.


Let me know what you think by replying to this e-mail (leifrecruiter at functionxinc dot com) or giving me a call at [masked]-6992.


If you're not interested or it's not the right time, let's stay in touch (via LinkedIn, perhaps). If you know anyone that would be interested, feel free to pass this e-mail or my contact information.
