Web/Software Development Instructor - VIM/JAVASCRIPT/NODE/RUBY/RAILS

Devschool school is looking for an expert Rails & JavaScript Programmer with at least 10 years of professional programming experience. The idea candidate is a seasoned developer who has worked as both a corporate programmer and as a consultant with a proven track-record. You should have had plenty of career-time to make a serious mess of things, and then some time to learn how to unmess all the things, and then a bit more to learn how to prevent the mess to begin with.

You need to have patience and kindness in abundance for our students to do this job. There are no 'loud egos' here shouting down at the students. Their job is to be ignorant, your job is to be a good ambassador of our school's spirit and good will and to rectify their ignorance with expertise and compassion.
