Who We Are Looking For

We are currently looking for a talented programmer with Ruby / Rails experience to help with the rollout of eCommerce related functionality for RevZilla.com on a full or part-time basis. This would involve opportunity to build, test develop and deploy significant features to high volume fully custom eCommerce platform. The developer would also be exposed to the inner workings of a technology driven online retailer from the ground up and could gain valuable experience.

RevZilla was founded by a team of software developers so you will work side by side with the founders of the company to identify key functionality and features, wireframe, develop, and deploy to the production site.

  • You have strong passion for high-quality software and the ability to deliver product in an informal, agile environment.

  • You have a positive attitude with excellent interpersonal/communication skills. You’re happy working both independently and with others in a multi-team setting.
  • You’re not comfortable unless you’re at the top of your game. When you’re not at work, you’re tinkering with new technologies or catching up on ideas from industry thought leaders. You might even have your own blog and/or tinker on open source projects in your spare time.
