We are currently a 13 person ruby development team (within a small-medium size tech shop) that is working on a single codebase for a large enterprise (but not enterprisey) application. We are looking for intermediate to advanced developers to join our team. You don't need to be a Ruby dev. . .you just need to be a passionate dev who is willing to learn Ruby! We aim to take the best elements of various development methodologies that work for us (most notably from the agile camp) but don't adhere to any existing process.

We supply our developers with the latest Macs, and use modern dev tools: Git, Github, Pivotal Tracker, Rspec, Rails 3, Engineyard. All developers are encouraged to champion improvements to the way we do things and we sincerely value our sane (or as close as we can reasonably achieve) company culture.
