Position Type
Sr. Ruby Developer
We are looking for a senior Ruby developer with proficiency in Java to assist with the migration of a module from Ruby to Java.

The module above, referred to as style sets is written in Ruby on rails. With the frontend in HAML (HTML Abstraction Markup Language). And the database in MySQL.

The module allows users to drag and drop images of their favorite articles of clothing into a specified area and creating a style set. All of the JavaScript engine that help facilitate this will stay intact and remain unchanged.

What we need for this project is to convert all the Ruby code to Java using J2EE with the EJB app servlets architecture, and the front end to be converted from HAML to JSP (Java server Pages)

This project is predominantly changing the data access layer to Java/JSP from Ruby/HAML. There are only 28 tables for the entire module and only 10 are heavily used. The bulk of the code that powers this module is in the JavaScript, which does not need to be changed.

  • You have 5+ years of web development experience
  • You have 3+ years experience architecting and building scalable web apps with Ruby on Rails
  • You are proficient using Git
  • You have experience working with agile processes/techniques such as Scrum and XP
  • Proficiency with J2EE elements such as Servlets, EJB (SB, EB and MDBs)
  • Familiarity with HTML, JSP, HAML and JavaScript.
  • Compensation
    This is a contract position. Compensation will largely be based on length of time for migration and previous work experience.
