At BIZZBY We’re crazy about getting stuff done. In fact we’re so damn nuts that we know our sizzling mobile startup is going to change the way people do business with each other, forever. We’re bold with big biceps, 6-packs and tight speedos; our t-shirts are tucked in properly and we’re ready to go. As founders we’ve been leading start-ups for over a decade. We’ve got the t-shirts and bruises to show for it and know how to fund, build, scale and exit.
We’re after a CTO / LEAD DEVELOPER to take a hands-on approach to getting our first product to market and head up all future development. You need to be happy working when it’s dark outside. We’ve got a mattress in the corner but you need to bring your own pillow and mug. We’re rich and famous so you’ll get well paid, you can even keep the mattress.
