Official.fm - New York City - FULL TIME: Ruby Engineers, Frontend Devs - http://official.fm

We create tools and services that help optimize the day-to-day of music professionals: labels, artists, etc. We use the latest technologies in order to rapidly iterate and build the best possible product for our users. We are a small company of around 20 creative people and our lean structure allows us to move fast, cut the crap, and ship.

We are not afraid to try new things: our labs team has written audio decoders in JavaScript for MP3, ALAC, FLAC, and AAC, along with a pitch detector. We know the difference between production code and research code. We love open-source and it loves us back.

The ideal candidate has:

* Expertise in Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and related technologies.

* Familiarity with modern tools, such as Git, SCSS, and other.

* Experience with agile methodologies, TDD, sprints and poker planning, daily stand-ups.

* An opinion. We want you to argue about the right way to do things. If something isn’t up to our level of quality, we expect an intervention.

* Excitement about music and desire to work in this area.

Our stack includes:

* Ruby on Rails 3

* Nginx + Passenger

* PostgreSQL

* Full text search

* Message queues

* JQuery

* Backbone.js

* Git

We’re offering you a full-time, permanent position in New York City to create the second product of our music platform (ask us for details).
