Looking for a remote web developer position.
I've been working remotely as a web developer with Ruby, Go, and Ember.js for startups in Silicon Valley and France. I'm in Toronto. I took a break reading/exploring and looking to work again. Curious if there's interesting work through mastodon. PM me. Thanks.
Joined along from Refactor Camp this year (was good to meet people :D). Web developer in Toronto currently taking a break reading books---in the middle of Rulers, Religion, and Riches by Jared Rubin atm. Normally a lurker, as I try to listen more than speak... follow everything via RSS, even twitter. See how I can follow along this one.
Mastodon instance for attendees of Refactor Camp, and members of various online/offline groups that have grown out of it. Related local groups with varying levels of activity exist in the Bay Area, New York, Chicago, and Austin.
