Call for interest for consultant: Ruby on rails application development

Overview
The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) works with poor rural people to enable them to grow and sell more food, increase their incomes, and determine the direction of their own lives. Since 1978, IFAD has invested almost US$14 billion in grants and low-interest loans to developing countries, empowering about 400 million people to break out of poverty. IFAD is an international financial institution and a specialized UN agency based in Rome – the UN’s food and agricultural hub. It is a unique partnership of 165 members from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), other developing countries and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
Main tasks and responsibilities
IFAD is looking for a consultant in Ruby on Rails application development to support the implementation of the Fund’s disclosure policy.

  4. Update the IT Knowledge Base.
  5. Perform any other duties as required.
Required experience

  6. Graphic design capabilities.
Successful candidates will have a proven track record with the following technologies :
  • Databases: CouchDB, PostgreSQL
  • Operating Systems:  Mac OSX, Linux, Windows
Additional information
It must be noted that consultants are not staff of IFAD, and that this consultancy does not carry any expectation of employment with the Fund. Remuneration will be in line with the standards set for UN consultants.  The consultant will work remotely for a duration of not more than 50 days.
IFAD can recruit consultants only among its member states. Applications from women candidates are particularly encouraged. Applications for this assignment must be sent to: r.samii@ifad.org. Only candidates under consideration will be contacted.
