Zoobean is looking for a full-stack web developer!
Zoobean (zoobean.com) is a Ruby on Rails web application for children’s books built by Bearded (bearded.com).
Zoobean makes it easy to find remarkable children’s educational products, starting with books, that have been recommended and curated by parents. Books on Zoobean are catalogued by recommended age, relevant topics, characters’ backgrounds, and other tags that matter to families. The company offers a subscription service, direct sales of featured books, and affiliate sales of books in its catalog.
Zoobean has already secured $500,000 in seed investment, led by Kapor Capital (Mitch Kapor is the founder Lotus Development Corporation, designed Lotus 1-2-3, and is the founding chair of the Mozilla Foundation.)
Our ideal candidate has a strong working knowledge of:
- Source control software (preferably Git)
- Relational databases (we use Postgres, but any will do)
- MVC architecture
- Object-oriented programming
- CSS and CSS precompilers
Though you may not have worked with everything we’re using on Zoobean, experience with the following technologies and techniques is preferred:

If chosen, Zoobean’s new developer will spend 3-5 weeks working on-site at Bearded in Pittsburgh. Bearded’s developers will work closely with you to help you acclimate to the application, it’s technologies, and approach. Once you know your way around, you’ll become Zoobean’s lead developer, communicating and collaborating with Bearded when helpful.
The salary for this position is competitive, and the opportunities for honing your skills and employing new web technologies are great.
Not only that, but you get to help grow this start-up with a heart and give families remarkable resources that empower their children to imagine and achieve anything!
