SlingRide is a startup with big plans to revolutionize the way people carpool and rideshare. We are looking for a key player in helping set the technical strategy (architecture and technology choices), production (building the service), and building out a killer technical team. Your peers will be the the CEO and Head of Product; together we will plan and prioritize the product roadmap.
What we're looking for:
A 'full stack' developer
Experience building highly-scalable web services: HTML, CSS, PHP,
Facebook APIs (Open Graph)
Relational Database: PostGre/MySQL (we will be using PostGre)
Building for the various mobile platforms: iOS, Android, BlackBerry
B.S., M.S., or PhD. in Computer Science or similar technical degree
Experience interacting with external stakeholders and fielding questions during due diligence.
Great oral and written communication skills
Ability to thrive in a startup environment
Even if you don't meet all of these requirements, our top priority is finding smart, passionate, and tenacious people -- the type that can 'get things done'.
About Slingride: Slingride is building the world's safest, simplest, and most civilized online ride-sharing community. We are passionate about legitimizing ride sharing as a transportation category and building a world-class brand. The trends are in our favor: collaborative consumption, gas prices, environmental responsibility, and an increasingly deprecating public transportation infrastructure.
Slingride has recently been accepted into a top Incubator located in downtown Toronto. We have the support of some of Canada's top technology leaders. We will be located there full time until early November (the space is very awesome). We have a prototype built (www.slingride.com), and are looking for the right technical lead to help take SlingRide to the next level!
