Seeking talented web developer who can score over 14 points.

TWG is a web development shop for designers, coders, thinkers and friends. Each day we pour all of our creative energy into what we love, and that makes getting out of bed in the morning the easiest decision to make all day.

For some, working at TWG will be a career, for others, it will be a stepping stone on the way to other even greater things. And we’re fine with that, because we know that everyone’s path is a little bit different. In fact TWG’s Big Hairy Audacious Goal is to become the best web application shop in the world to Learn, Work and Innovate. If you’re still intrigued, please read on..

In the winter, we take a week off and head somewhere sunny to regroup, re-energize and dream up the next big idea we want to tackle.

In the summer, we take a week to head somewhere north with a nice lake, to sit around campfires, play music, and assess our progress and plan for the months ahead.

And in between, we do all sorts of good stuff in our studio, building web and mobile apps for our clients, as well as designing and developing our own products to bring online. We’re primarily a Ruby on Rails shop that has recently started to work with html5, iOS and other mobile technologies. If you’re a talented web developer, and think you have plenty to learn and plenty to share, please read on..
