We are looking for a technical co-founder in the LA area to partner with! We are looking for a veteran of the software industry who is willing to spend his time helping us bring our concept and vision to reality and joining our small but growing team.
Lifenote is a small, seed-stage startup based in Westside Los Angeles that was conceived by two UCLA alumni. We specialize in productivity software. Our current software provides an intuitive way for students to take notes and annotate lecture material on Tablet PCs.
We really think this would be a great opportunity: We have already made many of the initial connections needed with hardware manufacturers and have some very significant figures in the personal computing industry sitting on our Board of Advisors. We have developed a early stage of the software but need more guidance and leadership on the technical side.
If you think that you have enough knowledge to help us fulfill our dream, and if you are currently looking for a chance to launch something brand new and exciting, please contact us. We are open to give substantial equity options and have no doubt that we will receive necessary funding further down the line.
Specifics we are looking for:
You are willing to postpone immediate cash-based salary for a bigger opportunity in salary and equity down the line.
You have some experience with start-up companies and have experience in the consumer technology market.
You have knowledge about productivity software such as OneNote, Jarnal, Evernote
You are a rockstar coder who can understand systems architecture.
You have experience in UI design implementation.
High level of knowledge in a variety of coding languages
You are very familiar with open source software and Linux distributions
You can set strategy for technology and our product, find the necessary team members and guide them to success
Set technology strategy, architect a solution, build a team
You are not just looking for a job but a chance to change the world.
You have excellent communication skills.
You can work long hours in a small office.
You are passionate and driven.
You seek out answers when you are lost.
Know some basics of software and hardware integration.
You must be able to work at our offices in Westwood, Los Angeles.
If this is you, please send us all relevant information (resume, LinkedIn, Blogs, etc.) and we can arrange for a face-to-face meeting where we can discuss things in further and better detail.
