You are:
A motivated Back-end Developer with experience in Ruby on Rails who’s eager to be part of a young team and exciting ideas.

We value software engineering highly, but we're not an engineering company; IE. is a product company. We're 50 people and tight-knit, looking for a core contributor who can work independently - you should not only thrive at solving problems, but identifying and prioritizing them.
