We are bootstrapping a mobile startup in the bay area. We are veterans in the game industry, experienced in creating successful games, apps and entertainment on a variety of platforms over the past two decades.
You can lead us in getting our backend (or as we like to call it, the junk in the trunk) set up, then create super-sweet technology that will communicate asynchronously with mobile client.
You are responsible for your team, which is currently you.
You'd be responsible for hitting mutually agreed upon deadlines - cause even though we love to screw off and have fun, we do want to ship our product.
You have the responsibility of architecting and running a scalable system. And not scalable by just throwing money at the problem either...cause we could do that without a hot-shot like you
