In 2006, our Rails dev shop had a problem. Growing pains. Too many startup clients. Tough life, we know. The real problem was that many of them didn’t really need our full dev team for more than a few months at a time. We’d help them design and develop their prototypes, but upon completion, they’d need to start building their internal teams. So we decided to help.
Of course, we knew lots of great devs. Plenty of them were hoping to find just these kinds of gigs. Unfortunately, nobody was connecting the dots. Yes, some ‘tech’ recruiting firms were trying, but were mostly just succeeding in trying everyone’s patience (“Please call me at work,” and, “Send me fake job descriptions,” said nobody ever).
So we started asking startups and our dev friends if they’d like to meet. We treated them like humans, because that’s how we like to be treated. Matches were made, and one startup and one dev launched SpiderMonkeyly.* Never heard of it? Yeah, it went to the great startup loft in the sky. That’s startup life sometimes. And it might be why you’re here looking for a new job or engineer. We can help.
Since 2006, we’ve helped connect hundreds of devs and startups. We’ve got dedicated teams focused on Rails, Android, and iOS because finding great matches between jobs and engineers means it’s critical we know the development landscape. Oh, and our dev team is busier than ever developing for clients.*name changed for anonymity and silliness.
