A former member
Post #: 1
My client offers a tremendous growth opportunity for a highly skilled, experienced Ruby on Rails engineer to be rapidly groomed and promoted to a CTO role. They are a highly successful VC-funded startup in the Worcester, Massachusetts area which has achieved world-dominance in their industry and has successfully doubled market-share every year for the past three years.

They have retained me to recruit an aspiring CTO to build an engineering team, and to lead the technology development of a small company poised for "rocket-ride" growth, accessible to candidates in the Boston, MA /Metrowest area as well as Providence, RI.

What You’ll Be Doing:
• Leading the technical development of web applications serving up map-based, data heavy information products
• Solving challenging problems working with massive datasets that include crime statistics, schools, lifestyles, neighborhoods and more
• Working in an Agile, TDD environment writing code you can be proud of
• Keeping existing products up-to-date with the latest technologies, architectures, and standards
• Helping build a nimble engineering team with potential path to CTO
• Collaborating with PhD Geographers and Statisticians to create new, disruptive products

What’s In it For You?
• Major opportunity to build your own team with potential path to CTO position
• Casual fun working environment, solving some of the most exhilarating Big Data problems in the industry, alongside a team that’s as passionate as you are about this stuff!
• Competitive salary, stock options for you to participate in company success, and great benefits (401(k), 100% medical coverage, 11 paid holidays)
• Great work/life balance, with 40-45 hour work weeks the norm!
• Long-term stability with a venture backed start up that is already profitable and growing
• Investors include the Founders of MapQuest and CoreLogic

Desired Skills & Experience:
• A BS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or similar; MS preferred
• 5+ years designing and implementing complex, data-heavy e-commerce systems
• Self-directed time management, documentation and communication skills
• To be passionate about your craft
• Extensive RoR app dev experience with merchant processing capabilities
• An ideal candidate would also possess:
o Familiarity with GIS-related software, incl. spatial databases such as PostGIS and the Google Maps Javascript APIs
o Experience with all aspects/tiers of web and mobile web app development
o Strong Unix skills including API/data mining experience
o Scaling and performance tuning of high-traffic, data-heavy sites
