I’m looking for an ember developer to take over my place on a project that I have to leave for personal reasons. It’s a fulltime, remote, contract position, with the strong potential to become permanent if everything works out with you.
The company is a very early stage bootstrapped startup, working on a financial tracking webapp that will be served by financial institutions to their clients. The founder is not technical (business/financial guy), but unlike most, he is really understanding, realistic, and can understand the essence of technical issues with a little explanation. As one of the first members of the team (currently 2, including myself), if you stay on fulltime, you would have a big hand in defining the culture and practices of the team.
An exciting aspect of this company is that, in spite of being very early stage, we already have multiple paying clients.
We recently converted the entire app from a traditional rails app to ember.js + rails api. There are some pieces involving data import/processing, calculations, data manipulation if that interests you. Currently, the app is mainly a reporting tool, but in the future, pieces involving a lot of interactivity are planned.
What we need from you is ember.js experience (ideally) or very strong interest (at least), ability to manage styling (scss) in an organized fashion, rails experience would be a plus. Any computational background or sys admin would be a strong plus.
I’m writing this posting without input from my boss, and I can say frankly that this is a great opportunity without a lot of the annoyances that generally exist in startups.
