We’re working with a profitable, bootstrapped company that helps a wide variety of associations on board, manage, and communicate with their members.

They have a multi-tenant rails app and need a rails engineer to help them create new tenants as they bring on additional associations. Creating a new tenant typically involves tuning one of their base tenant apps to adjust for a particular use case (adding fields to models, modifying controller actions, updating forms, etc.) as well as skinning the frontend for the new association (adding their logo, updating some colors and content, etc.).
