Job Description

Ruby on Rails Developer - Remote (Office is London based)

We're currently assisting a London based business in taking their applications to the next level. As a relatively small business, they're beginning to scale up aggressively, and predominantly in the technology team. We're seeking a mid-level Ruby Developer to come in and help them re-develop their entire application. This role can/will be fully remote, with travel to the office (expensed) only required once every 3-4 weeks.

The application is currently entirely in Ruby, but they want to re-develop it in C#. Your role will be essential in ensuring this is a seamless transition and will add the Ruby experience they need to see the project through. The business is keen to bringing in someone that is technology agnostic, and willing/able to retrain in C# .Net and stay with the business.

This is a great opportunity to work for a forward thinking business as they grow their unique offering. You'll no doubt end up being part of something much bigger in a fairly short period of time.
