Jobs offer November

I’m a little bit late this month with my vacation and everything else but here are the job offer that I’ve received this month. I hope you’ll find something interesting.


This first one is not a job offer, it is an event organized in Montreal. This Saturday, Montréal Ouvert organize a Hackaton for OpenData. If you want more information, you can see the official site or reserve your ticket now.


The first job offer is from Nimonik :


Lead Ruby on Rails / MongoDB developer


Part-time or full-time, Montreal (preferable) or Remote.

Company Info

Nimonik is a high growth and dynamic Montreal based start-up that provides companies with legal tracking and auditing software. Our products include a web-based application built on top of Ruby on Rails/MongoDB and an iOS app.

Our customers include major mining and consumer goods companies who work with environmental, health, and safety legislation.


You will be helping us evolve and build out our rails web application.

This involves releasing improvements and features on a continuous and iterative basis. The software is used in business-critical environments so its important that you enjoy writing tests and releasing stable code (and try to avoid cowboy coding).


You should have a few years of experience with Ruby on Rails and familiarity with NoSQL (MongoDB/Redis/etc). Experience building a REST based API on top of a rails application is a plus.

You will be closely collaborating with the CEO on fixes, functionality design and other items of importance. You will be the main technical person on the team, with a junior developer working for you.


* Writing clean and manageable code with RSPEC/Cucumber testing
* Improving the stability of our MongoDB implementation
* Tackle bugs and issues as they arise
* Build a scraping and change monitoring system for various external sites

Work Environment

We offer a flexible work environment where you can work on your own hours. Periodic meetings in Montreal will be required. A competitive salary and possible options are available for the right candidate.
