We've been building Ruby on Rails applications for over 10 years. For several years, they were full-stack Rails applications. Now we use Ruby on Rails on the back end to serve AngularJS, iOS, and Android applications on the front-end.
We're looking for a back-end developer to join our team and work with us on our API efforts. We always know what we want to accomplish. Usually the work is something we've done in the past and need to incorporate it into a new application. Occasionally we do things we've never done before. We're looking for a senior-level developer who is willing to take direction on us to apply the things we've learned and who is capable of running with new challenges we've never faced before.
As a back-end developer, you should be well-versed in developing in the absence of a front-end application. You know SQL very well. High performance applications are what you love to build.
Your native tongue is JSON.
We have written a small test to demonstrate your ability to write a parser. Additionally, we use SQL to a great extent, so we've crafted a test for your SQL skills as well. Simply paste your responses into your cover letter.
