RoR Developer Needed in Sunny Austin, Texas where the margaritas and queso flow like water

Hello everyone!

I’m sure you get hit up with a million emails a day about lack luster jobs, but I wanted to post here because I have a RoR developer position of epic proportions. This is with a fantastic tech/ed company that just jumped on the bandwagon and moved to my lovely Austin, TX. In addition to Lonestar and Queso in the fridge, they offer an amazing salary and will also provide relocation assistance in the form of carriage drawn by 12 majestic armadillos.

I’ve included the job description below (obviously not composed by me, but decent, none the less). If for some reason you don’t like to be serenaded by the sweet sounds of Willie Nelson while tubing down the river, but know someone who does, feel free to send them this email and I will happily send a referral bonus via the pony express.

Let me know if you are interested, and in the mean time I leave you with a little haiku:

In search of Ruby

Developers out of reach

Please respond yes/no.

Thanks from your friendly Austin, TX recruiter!!!
