Help Wanted: Looking For A Programmer Who Loves Local Businesses



Main and Me is looking for a full or part-time developer (avg. 20 hrs/week w/ possibility of 40 hrs/week in initial months) to help us move our project forward. Tasks will include:

  • completion of the mobile app (in progress)
  • addition of ecommerce capability
  • implementation of miscellaneous UI and graphic changes
  • bug fixes and improvements

The application code base is only 3 months old. It’s clean, fully tested, and architecturally sound. The backend is written in Ruby on Rails and sports a fully featured API. The front end is fully written in CoffeeScript using the Backbone.js framework.


  • Ruby on Rails 3.2.x
  • Ruby 1.9.x
  • JavaScript (CoffeeScript prefered)
  • Backbone.js
  • Sass
  • PhoneGap
  • PostgreSQL
  • RSpec
  • Heroku


The world shops online, but few local independent merchants have the time or skill to keep photos of current inventory posted to the web, or master the art of SEO.

To address this challenge, Main and Me allows merchants and local-passionate shoppers to create instant ecommerce-enabled Store Pages by simply snapping, captioning and checking in photos of products and services they want to share with the world. Individual store galleries from the same city are then aggregated to a Community Page for that city, allowing local shoppers to search for products by location and keyword; browse by product category; windowshop by serendipity and; like, comment on and make wish lists and registries, all of which can be shared over social networks.

If you or someone you know are interested, please email: james[at]mainandme[dot]com or call 413-250-8800. Onward and upward!
