Overview
Applications Architect/Developer
We're a predominantly Ruby/Rails shop, but recognize when other technologies are more suited to some challenges. We are looking for an experienced software architect to add to the team and help us scale our systems to the next level (which includes migrating to a more SOA and re-factoring our site). Our real time data needs are becoming more demanding. To support our increasing numbers of customers, we need to continue to refine and optimize our application. This person will do about 50% architecting, 50% development (will fluctuate depending on needs).
We need smart, innovative creative thinkers to help us solve complex challenges associated with building robust, fault-tolerant, high-performance, scalable systems.
