LA-based startup looking for intermediate developers to work our web and mobile applications.

at Forcefield in Los Angeles   —   Mar 25, 2014   |  
The product in development is a safe internet browsing product for children and young teens that combines filtering, a premium content library, a dynamic social network for young users and real controls and reporting for parents. The company is being launched by a media entrepreneur who has successfully built and sold large media companies in the past and is extremely enthusiastic about this new product. You will be getting in on the ground floor of a company with a huge future. Offices will be located in the mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles.


We are looking for Ruby/Rails developers to work on a Web App and API for our mobile and desktop clients. We are using Rails with Grape for the API and are hosting the App on Heroku. Our code is hosted on Github and we use Travis for CI.

A couple years of experience with Ruby/Rails is required and we'd prefer if you were familiar with Heroku, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, Redis and Grape. We use RSpec for testing and prefer to avoid the use of HAML.

You will be working ONSITE in LA - this is a non-negotiable requirement as we need to work closely as a team to get the product launched.


We have two mobile applications and a desktop application that we are actively developing. The desktop application integrates with Safari so an understanding of Safari Extensions is a plus.

On the desktop, communication internally is done with Web Sockets and externally we are connecting to our own RESTful API with AFNetworking. Some knowledge of both is required. We develop native apps but the mobile app includes a webkit-based web browser and hence knowledge of interacting with content inside of webkit frames is required.

You will be working ONSITE in LA - this is a non-negotiable requirement as we need to work closely as a team to get the product launched.
