AUCTION EXPIRED

Junior Ruby on Rails Developer

Junior Ruby on Rails Developer

Although my formal education is in Psychology and Human Resources, I have always been passionate about technology and software development. While studying for my masters, I have taught myself the Ruby programming language on my spare time and immediately fell in love with the language. I used Ruby at first to create financial calculators in my console to assist me in my computational finance classes. This curiosity for technology led me to an internship at Estee Lauder working on an SAP implementation, an SAP consulting position under Dell Services at Novelis and enrolling into Dev Bootcamp to learn Ruby on Rails in an intensive environment. Over the last six months, I have had the most intense yet fun learning experience of my life, learning Ruby, Rails, Sinatra, JavaScript, and database frameworks such as PostgreSQL 80+ hours per week. This intensive learning experience led me to an opportunity to work with a Data-Analytics Start-up in New York, building their databases, test environment and boilerplate app. I am interested in all opportunities to apply these newly minted skills in a results oriented Agile-focused team in pair-programming culture.
