Rails Developer

at TechCrunch in Palo Alto, CA   —   Jul 06, 2014   |  
TechCrunch digs
We're looking for two Ruby enthusiasts to help us build new products and platforms and to expand the functionality of our structured-wiki CrunchBase. Our ideal dev / hackers have:

Ruby, Ruby on Rails experience (six months +).
Experience with web applications connected to a relational database.
Computer Science degree (preferred).

TechCrunch is building a small but intense team of web developers to work on CrunchBase, our online database of startup, investor and entrepreneur information. CrunchBase attempts to structure the world of tech companies; it aggregates funding, acquisitions, products, people, investors, and offices via mashups and user-submitted data. We're all about opening up our data as much as possible; we recently launched an API that's taking off and gives developers easy integration and complete access to CrunchBase. Since its inception, CrunchBase has grown into one of the largest structured wiki deployments on the net (and unofficially one of the top 50 trafficked Rails sites).

TechCrunch is very much a startup. The culture is fast paced and dynamic with a significant amount of exposure to other startups in the technology industry. We throw big events including movie screenings, our annual August Capital party, and TechCrunch50.
As for development, we work with Ruby and we work with Rails. We use TextMate, rSpec, Capistrano, Git, GitHub, Lighthouse and we practice 'agile web development'. We eat DRY code for breakfast, write specs in the afternoon, and deploy new stuff at night. Check out our interviews on RubyInside and FiveRuns' TakeFive. We blog at, and tweet at
In addition to CrunchBase, we plan to develop other information-based products and services for the TechCrunch platform and community.
We also like to work with the APIs of other start ups. We were one of the first sites to launch Facebook Connect, Google App Engine and Yahoo! BOSS search.
