My name is Lauren Wulf and I am a technical recruiter for Brooksouce
in Nashville, TN. I have a client here in Nashville that is looking
for a Full-time Ruby on Rails programmer. This client is in the

applications. Please take a look at the job description and feel free

Our client needs a Ruby on Rails Programmer that has developed on
Linux or MAC OS. They are going live with their EMR in February or
March and are going to be losing one programmer at the beginning of
January due to family issues. They are an Agile XP shop and do some
paired programming, so this person must be open to that. Also,
eventually this programmer should feel comfortable enough to run with
things on their own and work off an IRC server. Most of the
programmers work from home a few days a week and just VPN in so that
is a nice perk down the road too.
Internet Explorer exp is good but Firefox is great. These
must be able to take projects and run with them and manage their
timelines. This is a crucial time for them so that is important.
Previous Design experience and any exposure to Subversion Source
control would be a huge bonus.
This job entails the designing, building, deployment and maintenance
of an enterprise-wide Electronic Clinical Record (ECR), which is web-
based and deployable against three different databases: Oracle 9i,
Microsoft's SQLServer, and Postgres 8. This will require knowledge of
developing procedures and triggers within one or more of these three
database environments. Experience developing both unit tests and
functional tests in a web environment is a plus. This position
requires a high degree of creativity, not in web-page design, but in
developing and debugging 3-tier web applications working in a group
context. Being a skilled communicator written and verbal is a
necessity. The ability to interpret and translate user requirements
requests into sound code and modules is a must. The ability to work
comfortably within tight deadlines is important. This job requires a
team player with good social skills and personal habits. This person
will work under the direction of the Project Manager, and will report
directly to the Director of IS Application Development.
Minimum Degree Requirements: BA in Computer Science or a related
(This may be waived with sufficient experience.)
Previous Experience: 3 years related to programming in a web
Development Environment: RAILS.
Database Knowledge: SQLServer, or Oracle 9i (or 10g), and/or Postgres
8 (not all three!).
Additional Demonstrated Skills: any of PERL, C or C++, PHP, Apache
2.0, or Lighttpd and FastCGI.. Knowledge of Subversion for code
maintenance is a plus. Any experience in writing requirements
definitions will be an added plus.
