I'm a techie turned entrepreneur who sold his first venture for a nice sum a few years back, and now starting-up a new business.
The new product has been under development using outsourcing since July, but things are progressing too slowly for my liking, so I am looking to move the code in-house and with the help of two top-notch coders.
What is the product?
I can not divulge too much on here, but I have come up with a new variation on social browsing that I believe is currently unexplored. I will give a full overview of the idea to short-listed applicants. Obviously this collaboration can only work if you believe in the concept as much as I do.
What am I offering?
I can afford to either pay you a very basic salary along with some equity, or no salary and a very large amount of equity (while retaining majority share for myself).
I will provide enough funding to the company to cover office costs, infrastructure, legal/accounting fees, external graphic design costs and a small marketing budget.
What am I looking for?
- are willing to dedicate 6-9 month of their life on a venture with little job security. If it looks like the market does not like the product, we will just wind things down and you can go on your way in 9 months.
- are AWESOME programmers. I am moving away from outsourcing because the quality is shit and the pace is slow. I can not afford to get the same result in-house.
The current code is WPF/.NET (front-end) and PHP + MongoDB (back-end)
We may keep the current code or start from scratch. Since I can do back-end stuff myself, a WPF/.NET/UI wizard is at the top of my wanted list, but ideally I'd get a person for each.
If you are an awesome coder, want to take a shot at creating something new/fresh, and are willing to risk 6-9 months on it, please drop me a line!
