Lead Developer - AngularJS and Rails

Remote or Local - Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Torig is shaking up an old industry with a mobile-first scheduling and routing web app for a specific trade.

We are an early-stage company and working with us will be an opportunity for professional and personal growth. We have built a team, are financed, and are ready to hire an experienced technical lead.

Your expertise and great technical skills will turn specifications and ideas into action on Web and Mobile Platforms. You will need to own and guide the development process to a successful launch. We keep tight feedback loops to ensure efficient development.

We are a results driven team using Agile/SCRUM methodologies to build successful products. We offer the freedom to work remotely and make your own hours. If you are part time, you are welcome to have another job simultaneously, but you will end up leaving that job for us!

Your competitive salary will be augmented with available stock options.

We like people who really like:

• Ruby on Rails

• JavaScript, Angular.js or similar frameworks, and Node.js

• HTML 5 and CSS 3

• Writing and interfacing with APIs

• Clear and effective communication

• Working hard to build great things

If you are not a life long learner and do not like being creative, this is not the job for you! We value our company culture as much as your skills.

I was going to email you, but I feel that it would be beneficial to other job seekers if I posted here instead. This is a rather vague listing, and I don't think there's any way I would apply without a few key questions being answered.

• Can you be any more specific about the nature of your target market? If not, what prevents you from discussing it?

• How can I verify that the company is "highly experienced in its target market and ... has a proven track record of success", given the absence of a website or any discernable press?

• When you say that you're "building a flourishing and lucrative business" and that your "results driven team ... build[s] successful products", is this a reflection of the company's actual status or just its hopes?

If you actually value "clear and effective communication", you might consider a full rewrite of this job posting with honest details.
