Vokle is the leading live interactive video talk show platform where hosts can broadcast to a virtual auditorium of fans, and take live video and text questions from the audience. We've worked with everyone from news mogul Arianna Huffington, to Al Gore to Tony Robbins to 6-time Grammy nominated Imogen Heap and many others.
We firmly believe in Open Source Software, and contribute back to the community. You'll get to work on projects that go beyond simple Rails CRUD apps, using technologies like WebSockets, EventMachine, Clojure, ZeroMQ, and Backbone.js.
Our ideal candidate has a solid knowledge of Rails, and feels comfortable jumping into an existing Rails 3 codebase. Candidates should be familiar with RSpec as well. We have significant rich HTML functionality, and applicants should be comfortable working on the full stack, not just the back-end.
If you have a GitHub account, wed love to see your work! If youve got a Hacker News / Reddit Account wed love to learn a bit more about you through those avenues as well. Check out http://www.vokle.com/ and please include a brief cover letter with your thoughts on the platform and what you can offer to take it to the next level. You can send the email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
