Hi Jesse,

Here’s the basic information you need: https://www.gov.uk/tier-2-general

The short version is that yes, you can move to the UK and work, as long as you have a job offer from a company that has a “sponsor licence” (https://www.gov.uk/uk-visa-sponsorship-employers) and you meet certain other criteria (salary, savings, English language proficiency etc) that probably pose no problem for a US citizen in the tech industry.

There is plenty of unmet demand for good Rails developers in London, so as a layman it seems likely to me that you could do this if you want to.
