We are an early stage start-up based out of Kansas City that is looking for a python or ruby developer to help us build out our initial release of a social based educational startup. This opportunity would be great for a candidate that is looking for a fun side project that has major potential. Local to Kansas City is a big plus; remote developer may work for the right candidate. We also have interest in submitting an application for the winter 2012 Y-Combinator program.
Drop us a line and let us know if you're interested. If you're local to KC, we can grab a beer or a coffee and chat about the product and see if it may be a good fit for both of us.
Building the first release from the ground-up; you will be responsible for the development and design
Working on the product and meeting with the team outside of your day job (if you have one)
Solve any challenges around scaling and performance
Have fun with us! (we think building this start-up will be exciting!)
Experience developing web applications in python or ruby
Development experience using APIs (PayPal API is a plus)
Basic experience in CSS/HTML
Ability to build a database-driven application from concept to release (ruby or python)
Self-initiative to work on the product in your free time
Great communication skills
We don't care where you went to school nor do we care how many years of experience you have. If you're good at building stuff and have fun doing it, that's what matters.
Initial compensation will be in equity, however the founder plans to also offer a small stipend.
