I do full time Rails development and feel comfortable working on any Rails 3/4. I've dug into the internals of Rails Engines while working deeply with Spree (a multi layered Rails engine ecosystem) and have no issue inspecting a gem's source code to find the root cause. I generally use RSpec/Cabybara for testing, but have used TestUnit here and there. Here's the last Ruby/Rails/Spree project I deployed, http://www.juiceshop.com/. I've done a few rails commits - see http://contributors.rubyonrails.org/contributors/weston-platter/commits.

I use jQuery on all the web development projects I do to execute basic UI/UX functionality.

I built out 4 Backbone applications and additionally pulled in Marionette.js to make parts of the Backbone codebase less MVVM and more MVC. I also worked on a Backbone/Rails generator tool, https://github.com/westonplatter/railsy_backbone.

I rely on my intermediate SQL knowledge to efficiently and proactively manage database schemes. Indexes help keep queries fast, but N+1 can kill any optimizations because of poor app development decisions. I generally use an ORM. Here's an example of adding inner joins to eager load associations in with ActiveRecord/Rails, https://gist.github.com/westonplatter/6645878#file-double_nested_spree-rb-L18.
Could've been better
I've worked with Weston before. He's incredibly knowledgeable. I was working through some issues deploying my rails application to production and in way over my head. He took me through step by step, not only making sure we got it working, but making sure I learned what we were doing along the way.
