Ruby on Rails Programmer: Adopt-A-Storm Drain Website, City of Medford Office of Energy & Environment (Medford, MA / Remote)

The City of Medford’s Office of Energy & Environment is looking to hire a programmer for a short-term project to create an interactive web map for the launch of the City’s new Adopt-A-Storm Drain Program. Adopt-a-Drain programs are volunteer efforts run by municipalities around the country to help keep drains free of debris which can clog them and cause flooding, or end up in nearby rivers and lakes. These programs also help enhance civic engagement, educate the community about environmental issues, and cultivate a sense of stewardship for the local environment.

We are looking for someone who will adapt existing open source code written in Ruby on Rails. The work will involve “forking” open source code via GitHub for San Francisco’s Adopt-A-Drain program, which is the most up-to-date version of this project, and adapting it for Medford. This will entail replacing the drain data and web text with Medford’s data and information, and deploying the site. A stipend of $500 will be provided, and the project is expected to take about 20-30 hours of work, possibly less. This task may also make a good final project for a computer science or web mapping class. This project requires proven experience in Ruby on Rails. Other required technical experience includes:

  • Website deployment
  • Github
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript

To apply, please send a resume and a cover letter describing your applicable experience to Alicia Hunt, Director of Energy & Environment, along with one or two references who can speak to Ruby on Rails projects that you have completed. These can be references for unpaid work such as school projects. We are looking to have this project completed as soon as possible.
