Hire principal / staff freelance Ruby on Rails developers in United States
1000+ Ruby on Rails developers looking for their next gig. Juniors to seniors and everyone in between, you'll find them all here.
👋🏻 When I first started working with Ruby in 2010, it felt so refreshing. Ruby felt like a language made specifically for me. I didn't even need docs. I could try a method and probably be right. Needless to say, I fell in love with Ruby. I've worked with Ruby and Rails for 13 years now and I can't imagine working in a different language. I have a deep appreciation for Ruby and Rails. I have extensive experience working with ActiveRecord and ActiveModel, as well as experience doing front end work with React. I enjoy the building websites and trying to make the best code possible while also making the experience of using those applications feel great. I'm also a strong advocate of Test Driven Development and have worked with RSpec and MiniTest in the past. Both are great tools and I like how TDD can quickly get me into a flow state. Recently, I've been learning to use Hotwire and it feels like such a breath of fresh air for frontend development. It's nice to be able to focus on solving the customer problem instead of fighting the toolchain. I'm open to roles where I can continue to grow my skills while I help teams build sustainable software in a pragmatic way. I believe the process of building software should be as enjoyable as the process of using software.
Seasoned Full Stack Engineer & Leader | Driving Innovation and Empowering Teams with 20+ Years of Experience
I've been working with Ruby on Rails since 2005, when I used it as a key component in scaling a journalism company from 30 to over 100 employees, securing tens of thousands of global subscribers, and surpassing $15M in annual revenue. My specialization includes developing bespoke SaaS products and integrating CMS and CRM systems with visual user analytics and subscription entitlements. I've been an engineering manager and director and have mentored junior developers to help them become accomplished full-stack engineers. My skills span across the software stack, from server infrastructure to UX/UI design. I'm proficient in CI/CD tools and processes and place high value on unit and integration testing. When confronted with unfamiliar technology, I challenge myself to learn it. Having worked remotely since 2004, I'm adept at remote collaboration and know how to synchronize schedules for effective collaboration across time zones. I communicate effectively and think critically, thanks to an education in English literature and creative writing. I’ve contributed to open-source projects, including Rails and Sidekiq. I'm passionate about making a difference in mission-driven companies and organizations and enjoy solving intractable problems with a curious, relentless, and no-nonsense approach.

The Turbo Native guy 💎📲
Hi! 👋 I help businesses port Rails apps to iOS and launch in the App Store with Turbo Native. Turbo Native enables teams to build high-fidelity hybrid apps by rendering HTML inside of native navigation. It means your team can reuse mobile web views across platforms. Create your views once, in Ruby + HTML, and render them on mobile web and in the iOS app. And when you need even more fine-grained control, you can drop down to native UIKit and Swift UI to build fully native views. This flexibility lets you produce large apps with small teams. Achieve baseline HTML coverage for free. Upgrade to native views as needed. Here's how I can help: Bridge the gap between your Rails app and iOS by implementing the the necessary Ruby + Swift code. Level up your team's Turbo Native + Hotwire skills with pair programming and workshops. Offer advisory guidance on best practices in the hybrid space from my 5+ years building Turbo(links) Native apps. I'm also the solo-founder of RailsDevs, the site you're using right now!

Self taught rails developer through The Odin Project. I love building things in rails and solving problems. I'm eager to continue learning in a professional code base.
I'm a motivated self taught rails developer. I was a CS major back in the 90's before google and stack overflow were available. I didn't have the self confidence or tenacity to make it through DSA at that time. I've been looking to make a real change in my life from my prior work. I started a business and in the course of that looked into building a website. I came across The Odin Project (TOP) and was hooked pretty much instantly. I've been a pretty tenacious user of google in my hobbies and jobs, so that really helped with this learning experience. I have the belief that if the information exists, I can find it. And it almost always exists. If not, then I'll go through the docs until I can figure it out myself. To supplement TOP, I did 4 Udemy courses totaling around 170 hours of video. That learning was then solidified by completing the original projects as part of TOP. While I may lack professional developer experience, I make up for it by being articulate, fun, creative and easy to work with. I have a diverse background of sales, customer service, and being a team leader for an environmental company. Software may be the product, but working with people is how it gets made.
