Rails It's Difficult Finding Senior Rails Talent

 

You and I both know that finding senior level Ruby on Rails engineers in the Bay Area is a difficult task.

I have over 14 years of experience in software development. Six years with Ruby on Rails.

I presented at this years RailsConf, the largest conference for Ruby on Rails developers.

I turned down a contract from Twitter because I was too busy with client work.

While working for Zvents.com, I doubled the number of events indexed year over year.

While at Manilla.com, I developed CMS that allowed product managers to update the site directly, saving hundreds of engineering hours.
