My client, a leading ESN (enterprise Social network) believes that the things that separate a great engineer from a merely adequate one are passions and goals, character and personality, not specific technical skills. Engineering exists to move the business forward. They expect all employees to speak openly about their ideas, their concerns, and their contributions. Everyone has a voice in what they build and they expect them to use it.
Currently seeking talented engineers to join their Rails team, you'll be expected to build stable, scalable, and robust features which help their users get their job done more efficiently. The Rails team works on public-facing applications and services almost exclusively. They build the site and APIs which serve millions of active users (and growing) every day. They spend a lot of time thinking about things like internationalization, caching strategies, A/B testing, and the product as a whole.
