Once a company leaves high growth behind and matures, the way that we did at Hashrocket, it forms an implicit social contract with its employees, a promise to provide them with stability over the long term. At that point, much to my frustration, the risk-takers are long gone. They've either gotten out of the building, permanently, or they have evolved along with the company by putting down stable roots of their own. At Hashrocket, I witnessed singles couple up and get married, and childless …

omakase) stack, a Thunderbolt stack, a Hashrocket stack, and many

other stacks, and in most cases the "stack" is not a fixed machine but

a fluctuating ecosystem. (I'm not sure if that's the right metaphor

either, but it'll work until I get an idea for a better one.) You

experiment with different gems on different projects, and some of them

you use more often than others.

There's an approved set of choices which represents Official Rails™,

…what nothing else in the world can do. We owe a lot to the exceptional genius of our Hashrocket team and the wizardry of the lead developer they provided to us. During my career I've led many projects and never seen a product reach this level of complexity without falling apart due to compromises and shortcuts made along the way. I attribute our success in no small part to the principles and practices that Rails embodies. It is the motivation that I had for choosing Ruby on Rails…

…talk was great also. I've worked with Travis in the past when I was at Hashrocket and he was at nGen Works. Not only is he a super smart lad but a very talented designer. I had high expectations walking in and wasn't disappointed.

…13 years of working on the web I have only spent 8 months in employment at Hashrocket. However, when I was approached about the oppurtunity of working with Mark Boulton Design I had an initial gut reaction that it was something that I would love to do.

I have learnt a lot from reading Mark's blog over the years and already had been following some of the team on Twitter. Their knowledge and passion very much spurred me into thinking that it would be an awesome place to work. Exciting …

…you leave Brazil for Chile? I moved to Chile to work at Hashrocket in 2009. When I was living in São Paulo I saw Obie's tweet about Hashrocket opening a new office in Chile and looking for brilliant developers to work there. I thought, "I am not a brilliant Ruby developer yet, but I could become one if I work with brilliant people." I sent my resume, interviewed at Hashrocket, and here I am. You are not a native English speaker. Do you have advice for people …
