B'more on Rails Message Board › Multiple Outstanding Ruby Opportunities in Boston Area: CTO, etc.
Dear Software Gurus and Expert Rubyists, Fellow Engineers:
My client, due to growth, has multiple openings in the Worcester, MA area for
Ruby coders at varying levels: Lead or CTO, Senior Software Engineer, and Junior Software Engineer. The company is already a leading provider of statistical GIS/Map data with high commercial value. Not only is the opportunity potentially lucrative, but the "Big Data"/Cloud Technology involved is itself quite disruptive and exciting, presenting a highly desirable new challenge for someone looking to improve their skills.
Their number one need is a very strong hands-on coder with expertise in full stack Ruby development. Someone who is ambitious to be a CTO and manage a team of other gifted engineers as well as lead the vision for the company and its product from a technical stance would be highly desired. Less experienced people could also be 'groomed' into this role if appropriate.
This opportunity is quite unique in that the company itself is extremely growth-oriented, small, and already profitable. It is venture-backed (i.e. funded) by some of the most successful players in the GIS industry. This is a pre-IPO opportunity offering stock options, good compensation, full benefits, and relocation assistance. In my 24 years recruiting for the leading software and engineering companies in the World, I have rarely seen such a promising small company opportunity, which is sure to attract many excellent and motivated candidates.
