ruby on rails programmer/developer

I have acquired a new online web company that was programmed in Ruby
on Rails and I am having a very difficult time finding anyone who
writes or works with this language to fix some minor issues and add
some major features. I live in the Boston area. Any ideas where I
can start looking for a dependable and competent Ruby developer? Any
help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Jon

Hi Jon,

I have acquired a new online web company that was programmed in Ruby
on Rails and I am having a very difficult time finding anyone who
writes or works with this language to fix some minor issues and add
some major features. I live in the Boston area. Any ideas where I
can start looking for a dependable and competent Ruby developer? Any
help would be much appreciated.

A good starting point would be the local Ruby Brigade. The Boston
area group appears to be pretty active. Info and contacts at
http://bostonrb.rubybrigade.org/

There are several online sites that specialize in Ruby on Rails
positions. Google 'Ruby on Rails jobs' and you'll see where
developers may be going to look for work.

HTH,
Bill

I don't know if you need the person to be their physically. But I'm
currently unemployed and have been working with Rails since 1.1. I'm in
CT close to Ny, NY.

thanks alot Bill

I do not need them to be there physically but would like to be within driving distance so that we could meet from time to time to discuss in person, the details and the needs of the business.

You're welcome. And best of luck with your new venture!

Ah didn't notice that ruby-forum blocks it out :frowning:
mohammad {dot} elabid !at! gmail.com - I get enough spam as it is XD

Some job board options (I believe they all cost to post an ad),
roughly from oldest to newest:

http://www.workingwithrails.com/
http://jobs.37signals.com/
http://jobs.rubyinside.com/a/jbb/find-jobs
http://jobs.github.com/
http://toprubyjobs.com/

Some are Ruby or Rails specific, others aren't. Those that aren't are
still prominent in the community.
