Seeking a Founder Level Web Developer (Front End Focused/Generalist)

at Confidential in Charlotte, NC   —   Apr 18, 2014   |  
Overview
Redefine a Stagnant Market, Eliminate Barriers to Entry, and Cultivate Fundamental Change

We’re searching for a founder level elite ninja/Jedi web developer to assist us in creating an innovative Web 2.0 branding platform that leverages crowd-sourcing and social media. We’ll be redefining a stagnant marketplace, removing barriers to entry, and cultivating fundamental change. We expect this person to not only be responsible for the development of the platform but to also be able to creatively collaborate at crucial pivot points during its evolution to beta.

You’ll be joining a great founding team that leverages domain experience from a globally ranked top 10 branding and marketing firm, a talented graphic designer, and a fantastic developer/CTO familiar with both front and backend web development.

We’re currently located in Charlotte, NC but virtual/telecommuting is acceptable until we have a viable release candidate. Ultimately, Silicon Valley is “the” destination for web-based startups and depending on logistics, economics, market factors, VC backing, etc… it may be a possible destination.

How to Apply
Please provide a CV/resume, example sites you have developed/coded with explanations of your level of involvement, your LinkedIn profile if possible, and any other relevant information.

Experience
Must have a true entrepreneurial and JFDI attitude.
Lamp Stack Experience (Python, Pylons, HTML, CSS, XHTML, XML, Javascript, JQuery, Ajax, JSON, etc…) along with related technologies
Database experience a plus (PostgreSQL)
Demonstrated ability to apply agile web development best practices with respect to scalability, security, usability, load-time, and basic search engine optimization techniques
Experience with social network APIs such as Facebook Connect, Twitter OAuth, Google Maps, etc.
Experience with UX design and implementation
Strong fundamental CS knowledge (data structures, algorithms) is ideal, as is a true passion for user interface development but most importantly, we need someone with a demonstrated ability to understand both the possibilities and constraints of web applications and large data problems.
Programming language experience is great but is secondary to aptitude, intelligence, problem solving, and a willingness to learn and master concepts quickly. (We’re looking for talent not languages.)
Passionate about helping small and medium sized businesses, branding, and the creative community
Business acumen – ability to understand overall business

Compensation

Based on progression, this initiative could move in several different directions once crucial milestones are reached (profitability and/or venture/angel funding). There are certainly several options available once these crucial milestones have been reached and we’re willing to entertain anything that we deem to be fair and equitable. (If there’s a fit, we’ll make it work!)
