Ruby on Rails Developer

TrueNorth Technology

TrueNorth Technology helps small to medium sized businesses enhance their ability to better serve their customers, and improve their business processes. This is done primarily through the implementation, customization, and maintenance of our core offering, Compass AE.Development is split between work on the core Compass AE application, and direct enhancements for our clients:■ Client work generally starts with modification to the base data models to better represent the structure of the organization, and how their business operates on a day to day basis. These changes build a foundation for adding new features and components into the Compass application. ■ The features created might be something small and fairly simple, like a backend application to manage particular types of users in their system, or converting and adding static web pages into our homegrown CMS system to allow technical novices to take over management of their company website.■ On the other hand, it could be something much larger; a real world example is a full fledged mobile application to allow drivers to manage shipments of orders and products throughout the country, with GPS tracking and mapping ability. This application is fully integrated with a complete backend application, allowing shipping company administrators to create new orders, assign them to particular drivers, track the status of all orders, and handle the billing, invoicing, and payments of the recipients and product vendors.■ When creating new client features, an in-depth analysis might determine a component can be integrated into the core Compass application, adding a new useful tool into the repertoire of Compass AE plugins. This balance between very specific client-based work, and more generalized core app features, allows for a constantly evolving application which is always adding value for end users, while at the same time not becoming an 'everything but the kitchen sink' solution adding unneeded complexity.
