MSCI Barra is looking for a developer that preferably is already up-to-speed with Ruby on Rails or at least interested in getting it. It’s pretty darn cool to see a company like Barra list Ruby as a required skill and Rails as a preferred one.
The short bio on Barra:

The job posting was made to craigslist’s San Francisco East Bay Area listing, so I expect its primarily targeting locales in that area.
