Just to let people know that this job is still open - the application is being developed by a team here at Unboxed and is a modern Rails 4.1 application so there's no problems with legacy if you're worried about that kind of thing. It's a really interesting, worthwhile project and if you're looking for a startup trying improve people's lives through technology then it'll be more your cup of tea than yet another niche social network.

If you're interested in applying and want to ask some technical questions then feel free to email me.

Andrew White
CTO, Unboxed Consulting
