It is rare in a person’s professional career when they get to join a team that’s not just providing another solution to a problem that already exists, but is disrupting a new marketplace. Imagine joining a company creating something that doesn’t exist today but will become the standard way we do things years from now. We have the road map but are looking for a bright programmer /web development ace to help us get there.
This is a ground floor opportunity which can lead to a Chief Technology level position, cofounder status, and significant equity. Our website is live and gaining traction but we need you to help transform it into the ultimate destination for the equity minded startup community we envision.
We are EquityLancer. We are developing the world's first online marketplace bringing together young startup companies in search of talent, goods and services with entrepreneurial minded professionals looking to exchange some cash compensation for equity in these startups they make successful. We facilitate these matches through our website, www.equitylancer.com. If working with our team on developing and growing this new site sounds like the employment opportunity you've been searching for we should talk.
We prefer to find a candidate who is looking for a full time opportunity but will consider a part time or contract professional to start who might grow into a full time roll. We are at a pre-seed funding stage so compensation will consist of deferred cash or a combination of deferred cash and equity when funding occurs.
