I'm looking for a technical co-founder / developer to join me. We are building a web application - a digital marketplace for independent filmmakers who need to search for film crew and for independent film crew who need jobs. Think Guru or Elance meets Hollywood.
We are a pre-funding web startup.
If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and links to your work.
We are seeking a talented, hands-on CTO to help take our Internet company to the next level. We need an entrepreneur with extensive technical expertise who will make strategic decisions about architecture, approach and technologies. He or she must have broad-based application development experience and the judgment to balance decisions against user experience, cost, and implementation challenges.
As for specific technical skills: profound knowledge of Ruby on Rails and MySQL are crucial. Strong database scaling experience and familiarity with Amazon Web Services a huge plus. Demonstrated ability to apply Web development best practices with respect to scalability, security, usability, load-time, and basic search engine optimization is also important. The CTO will make substantive contributions to the development process beyond simply managing it. He or she will also be deeply involved in product strategy, feature prioritization and business strategy.
The position is open to smart, entrepreneurial hackers. Computer Science degrees from top universities preferred. Must be self-driven and highly motivated to work both independently and with small teams. Initial compensation will be equity based. We’re located in NYC, but telecommuting is possible pre-funding. College preferred, but I'm more impressed by demos or a cool portfolio than degrees.
Spilt equity ownership, and the chance to create something new.
