We are a small team but we are growing and this is a great opportunity to really make a difference in a small company. Read on for the full details…


Senior Ruby/Rails Developer

We are looking to recruit a senior Ruby/Rails developer to lead our iOS application back end development as well as a large Rails project starting in early 2012. This role is primarily a Ruby/Rails role but there will also be opportunities to branch into iOS development.

What we offer

  • Competitive salary and top end Apple hardware to work on.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, send your CV (and Github and/or Stack Overflow profile if available) to dave.verwer@shinydevelopment.com.
