collective vision into creative solutions, so you must work well in a
team environment and be comfortable with change. You love the
dichotomy of the entrepreneurial experienceone day you're discussing
innovative new concepts on a whiteboard and the next you're locked in
a room fixing bugs and responding to emails from members. You are also
productive when you are only given 80% of the answerwe need people
who enjoy solving problems and making smart decisions along the way.
In terms of specific skills, you must have a near expert level
understanding of Ruby on Rails (in other words, you would feel
comfortable teaching a class to other developers with a day or so of
preparation). You also must have direct experience building dynamic UI
elements using Ajax (across multiple browsers), and you should have a
good understanding of CSS and layouts. Ideally, you also have some sys
admin skills and feel comfortable troubleshooting server issues in a
Linux environment as well.
