We’re looking for a top notch technical mind to work as our partner and lead developer, and who can help us conquer some big technical challenges around collaborative feedback, crowdsourced content, and deep, smart, marketplace search in ways that haven’t been seen before. People say finding a co-founder is like finding a marriage partner, so we’re looking for someone who truly believes in our idea, who has great potential and who is willing to embark on this risky journey with us. Of course experience and proven track records are major assets, but passion, ambition and raw talent are what we’re really interested in.
If you love proving that the “impossible” can be done in ten hours and want to become indispensable to a fast-growing, kick-ass, yet humble start-up, then we might be your next home.
Have strong front-end skills (XHTML/CSS/JS/jQuery);
Have “top-notch” skills in at least one of the popular MVC framework (RoR, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Symfony, etc.);
Be extremely detail-oriented and have a strong commitment to cross-browser and cross-platform testing;
Be creative, innovative and self-taught;
Have good knowledge of database design and server configuration;
Have an advanced understanding of emerging digital and web technologies.
BS in Computer Science would be greatly appreciated.
We’ve done the heavy lifting in terms of the idea and how it will be implemented. We’ve also started to gain some traction in the industry and dozens of coaches have come onboard after taking a look at the demo. All we need now is someone that can build the MVP.
We plan to raise $500k in seed funding within the next few months and could go much sooner depending on how quickly you can work. That being said, the following would be available to you:
• Equity compensation structure
• Competitive salary – based on your passion and expertise
• Voice in shaping the company – your input will be invaluable
• Build your team – we have plans to hire more people once funded so you’ll be hand selecting your own team
• Brand new laptop – it is your most essential work tool after all
