Pocket Tales is an online social reading game that turns reading books into a game for 9-13 year old kids. In other words, Pocket Tales is to reading books what fantasy football is to watching football games and Foursquare is to going places. We are funded by NYC-based Startl and Philadelphia-based Dreamit Ventures.
We currently have a workable product and are in a private-alpha stage.
We’re looking for someone who is an experienced Ruby on Rails developer and expert project manager to help us enhance our current alpha product. (NOTE: We are now also considering experienced backend developers willing to learn Rails)
The ideal candiate will:
- Have the ability to lead the backend development of the Pocket Tales web application including significant experience programming in Ruby on Rails or a willingness to learn Rails
- Provide informed opinions to the discussion of all aspects of the business
We are offering salary plus equity compensation. We favor candidates who are interested in more than just a job (that means equity is appealing to you).
