FetLife

BDSM & fetish community
for kinksters by kinksters.

Join the FetLife Family

Was going to talk about how this is the only place where incest is
acceptable but I think that will set the expectations way too high.

We are looking to find kinksters with the following mad skillz to join our family:

Rails Guy (or Gal)

Position:
Full-Time
Location:
Anywhere

The 411
We are looking for someone to sit between, and complement, both James and me on the team. Someone whose sole focus would be to constantly improve FetLife. Own the vision with us and help us take features and improvements from paper all the way to implementation. Then once deployed, iterate over them because nothing is good enough for you.

  • Ruby on Rails craftsman. Design patterns are your bitch.
  • Test-Driven zealot. You dream in RSpec.
  • Speaks fluent ruby. kinkster.virgin? ? "hey John!" : "John is so jealous!"
  • JQuery is your friend. Who needs any other.
  • Manager of One. We want a leader, not a yes man.

We are looking to only work with the bomb-diggity. Our peer. Someone that learns from us as much as we learn from them. Someone we will be proud to say is a part of our family and will play a large role in pushing FetLife forward. If you are not this person, please consider another position.
