We are a small but established company building telephony applications with Ruby and Asterisk. Our products are specifically designed for national, non-profit customers. Our growing, long-term customer base have used the products we develop to achieve startling progressive election victories.
Our key product is a part-Rails, part custom distributed network application with an AJAX+Comet interface. We are an Agile/Scrum shop, and do test driven development.
We’re looking to add two permanent full time developers to our growing team. We work hard, but give everyone a minimum one month per year paid vacation. Our office is in a converted textile factory at Queen and Spadina.
There’s not a ton of information there, so I won’t do a full write-up. It sounds like an interesting company doing something interesting to improve the world using fun technologies. That part’s all good. It’s not clear to me whether or not you’ll be well-compensated financially — for a small company in a “do-good” space, that’s not always true. Then again, if you can afford to adjust your salary expectations for the right gig, this seems like it might be worth a further look. The location’s not bad from what they say – a little off the beaten path, but in a fun area with lots of other startups.
