We are looking for a highly-skilled programmer with Ruby on Rails and strong database (MySQL) experience to work with us on the development of this simple tool.

Some PHP experience is required (to understand interface existing user authorization system). Experience with Subversion is also required. Quality/Experience of applicant will factor more significantly than price. Please, no recruiters.
