Cinnabar Media Ventures is actively searching for a software veteran with an addiction to start-ups to design and develop the technology for its niche social network. The company has created an initial prototype for proof of concept and market testing using outside resources but is now ready to bring on a technology co-founder to own product development. If you’re a creative, talented and entrepreneurial developer who thrives on challenge, refuses to fail and loves drawing on your past successes to build something entirely new, we want to talk to you.
Diverse background with expertise in developing scalable architecture, sophisticated databases, security and privacy solutions, internet-based retail, web and phone-based apps, games and media.
Consumer media mindset and approach – i.e. appreciation for and ability to deliver high-aesthetic user experience, love of innovation and dedication to quality, reliability and security but at market-driven pace where speed is critical.
Passion for technology and abstract appreciation for its infinite possibilities grounded by a strong user orientation including the ability to hear, understand and then deliver on user needs and desires.
Large-picture vision and ability to scope, design and manage multi-faceted technology development combined with willingness to jump in and be hands-on when necessary.
Collaborative approach and talent for finding, hiring and managing equally talented resources, both directly and via outsourced virtual teams; sufficient maturity and, ideally, natural ability to combine humane whip-cracking with calm under pressure in order to lead groups to meet tight deadlines and occasionally accomplish the impossible.
Ability to realistically estimate resource needs – in time, money and people – and deliver technology on schedule and within budget.
Co-founding position with significant equity available for the right candidate
