Customers love TurnKey (and we love them back!)

3 Years in a Row Best in KLAS for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services

"TurnKey is the only offshore firm we've interacted with that really places an emphasis on retention. They seem to be the only ones that understand how important retention is to maintaining strong product development cycles. Our churn rate with TurnKey has been under 5% annually whereas we were at more than 50% with our previous vendor!"

We've hired 5 full-time software engineers through TurnKey. To date, not a single engineer has left our contract/arrangement. We worked with several U.S.-based recruitment firms, and none matched the speed and quality of candidates referred by TurnKey. Most impressive and unique about TurnKey is their willingness to reach for the perfect candidate. Our requirements are strict, and they did not compromise.

"It's been nearly two years of us working together and we have not had the need to replace a single developer. The programmers have all performed very well and TurnKey has been able to give us information that has helped to retain our key players."


Mackezie Drazan (US)

CEO of MiResource

We have hired 5 total developers including tech lead, full stack, dev ops and firmware. For each hire, a strong pipeline of candidates was provided, and the TurnKey team performed a lot of pre-screening such that those that entered the funnel were strong and relevant. They also helped with setting salary comp, and closing. Finally they continue to provide HR services as well as legal admin services associated with employment of a geographically diverse group of developers.

We started with 8 hired developers and there have been no problems with any of the hires. We are currently monitoring them as we do all engineers but there is nothing to report that would make us consider this arrangement with TurnKey anything but successful. The transparent pricing up front as well as the genuine desire to continue improving with each hire we make is a big difference maker for us.

TurnKey provided high-quality talent at a cost-effective price. We employed TurnKey to manage the hiring/HR/Legal for >80% of our entire Product team - from identifying and hiring Team Leads, to agent level support roles. I also appreciated that they were proactive in suggesting certain criteria and requirements when first starting our search for key team lead members.

Founder & CEO of ResNet AI Inc.
The Best E-Signature Software According to G2

We reviewed several similar companies and along with the cost the major deciding factor was the quality of experienced candidates TurnKey was presenting to us. The additional team members worked alongside our scrum teams delivering new feature functionality and enhancements to our platform.We're impressed with the quality of their candidates and the work ethic they demonstrate on a day-to-day basis in our agile ceremonies.


Sandy Speirs (US)

Director Of Engineering at Sertifi, Inc.

TurnKey is well versed in the startup ecosystem and really understands our needs when it comes to offshore dev, particularly how our needs may be different than the needs of a huge public company. I don’t have to explain as much to TurnKey as I have had to do with other offshore vendors—they seem to get it on the first take. But at the end of the day, all we really care about is quality, and TurnKey has delivered the goods on this front better than other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

Key Questions – and Answers! – about Ruby on Rails developers


Why is Ruby on Rails popular?

Ruby on Rails, often simply referred to as Rails, is a popular web application framework written in Ruby. One of the main reasons for its popularity is its simplicity and ease of use. Rails follows the principle of "Convention over Configuration", meaning developers don't have to spend a lot of time on setup and configuration, and can instead focus on the actual coding. Furthermore, Rails uses the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture, which separates the application into three interconnected components, allowing for more organized and efficient coding. 

Another factor contributing to Rails' popularity is its extensive and supportive community. There are numerous resources available, including tutorials, guides, and forums, where developers can find help and advice. Moreover, Rails is known for its speed and efficiency. It includes many built-in features and plugins that can speed up the development process, allowing developers to build web applications faster and more efficiently.

How to hire a Ruby on Rails developer?

Hiring a Ruby on Rails developer involves several steps. The first step is to clearly define your project requirements. What kind of web application do you want to build? What features and functionality does it need? Once you have a clear picture of what you need, you can start looking for developers who have the skills and experience to fulfill those requirements. You can post a job ad on online job boards, use professional networking sites like LinkedIn, or work with a tech recruitment agency. 

After receiving applications, you will need to screen them to shortlist potential candidates. Look at their resume, portfolio, and any code samples they've provided to assess their skills and experience. Once you've shortlisted candidates, conduct interviews to further assess their technical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and cultural fit. You may also want to give them a coding test or a small project to evaluate their practical skills. Finally, once you've found a candidate who meets all your criteria, you can make a job offer. Remember, hiring a Ruby on Rails developer is not just about finding someone with the right technical skills - they should also be a good fit for your team and company culture.

However, if you want to skip all this hassle and immediately get  help to build a team of Ruby on Rails developers that can integrate, and grow while they make a valuable contribution to your projects, partner with us and experience our unique tech staffing solutions as we live and breathe cultural integration. TurnKey is the accelerated way to unlock the full potential of RoR development services, reap the benefits of a global workforce, and achieve long-term success.

Skills to look for when you hire top Ruby on Rails engineers?

When hiring a Ruby on Rails engineer, there are several key skills you should look for. First and foremost, they should have a strong understanding of Ruby, the programming language that Rails is built on. 

They should be familiar with its syntax, data structures, and object-oriented programming concepts. In addition to Ruby, they should have a good understanding of Rails and its conventions. They should know how to structure a Rails application, how to use its various components, and how to take advantage of its built-in features to speed up development. 

Knowledge of databases is also important, as Rails applications often involve storing and retrieving data. The engineer should know how to design a database schema, how to perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations, and how to write SQL queries. Familiarity with front-end technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is also essential, as Rails engineers often need to work on the front-end of the application as well. 

Finally, good problem-solving skills, attention to detail, and a passion for continuous learning are also important qualities in a Ruby on Rails engineer.

How to create a hiring funnel for Ruby on Rails engineers?

Our robust screening protocol, expert recruitment team, and perfect retention program are the key pillars of our success.

We were able to identify the perfect-match developers who had the right technical skills and fit well with the company culture. These developers have since become an integral part of the Headspace team, contributing significantly to the company’s growth and success.

What are the tools used by Ruby on Rails developers?

Ruby on Rails developers use a variety of tools in their work. To write and edit code, they use text editors or integrated development environments (IDEs) like Sublime Text, Atom, or Visual Studio Code. To manage and track changes to their code, they use version control systems like Git. 

To test their code, they use testing frameworks like RSpec or MiniTest. To design and manage databases, they use database management systems like PostgreSQL, MySQL, or SQLite. They also use web servers like Puma or Unicorn to run their Rails applications. In addition to these tools, Ruby on Rails developers also use a variety of libraries and plugins to add functionality to their applications. For example, they might use Devise for authentication, Paperclip for file uploads, or Sidekiq for background jobs.
