Wanted: Ruby programmer who loves to work with open data

leave a comment »

As you may have read from our previous post, OpenlyLocal is taking over PlanningAlerts.com to enable this valuable service not just to continue, but also develop into a much richer community resource.

We’ve already started work on this, but we need a Ruby programmer to help us with this (and maybe much more). This is what we’re looking for:

  • Great Ruby skills, and solid experience with Ruby on Rails (OpenlyLocal is a Rails app)
  • Experience with Test Driven Development
  • An all-rounder with some Linux sysadmin skills
  • Have done enough scraping to be able to handle those pesky .asp pages
  • Eagerness to work with open data
We’re open to the work being done on a contract basis, or as a member of staff (though we have a virtual office). Send us an email to info at OpenlyLocal dot com, including links to existing projects/code that you have been responsible for.
