JOB - Ruby Developer - Hiring Now

We are hiring again for back-end and front-end:

Founded in 2009, explorist is a New York City-based startup focused on the
development of software tools to help connect science, engineering and tech
projects with experts worldwide.

The firm was founded by a former Harvard Innovation Lab & MIT Media Lab member
and received its 3rd round of funding. Our small but international team of 8 is
based in a sunny and attractive Loft in TriBeCa. We care about people and
corporate culture and have built a rather unique creative, hard working but fun

Explorist is looking to grow its team in NYC:

- On-site and Off-site
- Full-time Ruby back-end and/or front-end developer
Competitive Salary plus Equity
- Part-time (freelancing) Ruby back-end and/or front-end developer for several well-paid
weekly/monthly tickets

As a developer on our small core team you'll have a huge impact on all of our
current and future software projects.

What We're Looking For:

The right person for the job will have a strong commitment to engineering
excellence and a drive for continuous process improvement.

Developer Role / we work with:
Rails 3
Ruby 1.9.2

We're looking for talented, well-rounded developers to accelerate development
of our Ruby on Rails-based website and supporting Ruby-based, cloud-hosted
applications (We're not dogmatic about technology). These positions are focused on
back-end and some front-end work, if you have full-stack experience, that's a plus.


- 3+ years of software development experience
- 1+ year of experience with an MVC web framework (Rails, Django, Symfony, etc.)
- Solid grasp of agile development practices
- Passion for elegant, DRY code that gets the job done
- Working knowledge of Git


- Contributions to the open innovation community
- Excellent communication skills

Compensation / Perks:

- Competitive salary plus equity for Full-time position
- Competitive hourly rate for part-time (ticket) assignments
- Membership at NYC's best gym: Chelsea Pier
- Corporate membership at Harvard Club of NYC

How We're Different:

For one, we're different because we know that our work has a significant
positive impact on today's society: We create new collective intelligence spaces
and direct marketplaces for experts and projects - thus broadening the global
R&D base - thus creating a new "project engine" to take on the World's toughest
challenges. Also, you'll be working with a team of smart, creative,
international and talented entrepreneurs, techies, scientists and software
engineers committed to delivering high quality software using an Agile process.
The ideal candidate can start ASAP. We're a small, informal team, so this is the
place for you if you prefer rough consensus and running code over bureaucracy.
