At last, our Jobs Board has returned
Our new, enhanced jobs board is now back online. Carrying the best Rails jobs from around the world, aimed at the best Rails candidates, the jobs board is currently completely free to use.
And.... We're Back!
Years ago, when Rails was relatively new we set up Working With Rails as a way of letting people discover more about other people, companies and sites that were using Rails. It was instantly successful and we were chuffed to bits when so many people signed up and submitted loads of entries to the database. We added forums and they were well-used. Then we got busy we other things, staff came and went, and shamefully Working With Rails fell somewhat by the wayside. It carried on but became riddled with spam and other junk. It's not that we didn't care but we just couldn't quite find the time to sort it all out. One of the problems was that it was built in a time before these things were quite the issue they are now, so the moderation tools at our disposal weren't all they might have been. Fast forward to 2012 and we decided it was time to bring Working With Rails back to life.
Our first move was to migrate the existing content and styling on to our Kit Community and Content Management System. This gave us a whole raft of benefits, right off the bat - we could have more fully featured, spam-free forums that were easy to moderate, we could offer databases of people, companies and sites and add fields to them with a few mouse clicks rather than writing custom code. In fact, the entire site as it is today uses only features built in to Kit. But this is where the excitement comes in: we are going to build some great new features, specifically aimed at the Working With Rails community. So, once you've had a browse around, posted on our forums and maybe got in touch with some old Ruby on Rails friends, let us know what you'd like us to add and we'll get cracking...
