Hi! 👋 I'm Joe Masilotti, an independent developer who's passionate about clean, testable code. I build, test, and deploy Ruby on Rails, Turbo, and iOS apps.

I would love to work together!
Send me an email to get in touch.

The “Masilotti.com Umbrella”, as I like to call it, contains a few different areas of focus.


First is consulting, where I help teams design, build, test, and deploy their products. Primarily Ruby on Rails sites, native iOS apps, and Turbo-powered (Turbolinks) hybrid mobile apps.

My focus is clean, testable code and integrating into a company as much as possible. Expect to see me in your Slack and weekly meetings!

I also work full stack across all disciplines, tackling anything from Sidekiq background jobs to front-end Stimulus controllers. Or building the JSON API and SwiftUI app in concert.


Pair programming is the quickest way to level up your development skills. I take this to heart and offer live 1:1 or group coaching in Ruby on Rails and iOS for teams.

These sessions range from teaching SwiftUI to new iOS developers, getting ramped up in the latest Hotwire features, or in-depth code review. Occasionally, I run group sessions on specific topics, like Turbo Native, UI Testing, or Swift mocks.



My primary focus is railsdevs, a reverse job board for Ruby on Rails developers. I built it to make it easier for devs to find their next gig, whether full-time or freelance. Also, it's open source and contributions are welcome!

Jumpstart Pro for iOS

Somewhere between my tutorial on turbo-ios and hiring me lives Jumpstart Pro iOS. It's a plug-and-play code template I built with Chris Oliver to quickly port your Rails app to iOS with Turbo Native.

X-Wing AI

On iOS I run a board game companion app for X-Wing, X-Wing AI. The app simulates a human opponent with a believable yet unpredictable AI. This has been a huge welcome for a game that usually requires at least two people to play!

Mugshot Bot

I recently sold Mugshot Bot, a zero effort social image generator. Plug in a URL and it spits out a beautifully designed, perfectly sized image to share on Facebook and Twitter. You can even point your `og:image` tag directly to Mugshot Bot's servers.
