[JOB] Your Mission: Build the Best Chess Coach Ever
Monday, September 9, 2013 10:29 AM
Hi, I'm looking for a well-rounded engineer / architect to join me in building something ambitious. It's a full-time paid position with equity and benefits, based in Soho.
My name is David Joerg, I'm an entrepreneur and Harvard CS graduate. The more experienced crowd will remember Vindigo, the pioneering mobile startup I co-founded in 1999. Then I joined the founding team of Two Sigma Investments, where we successfully brought a scientific, rigorous, data-driven approach to trading and investment management.
We see a future where coaching in games like chess, Starcraft and even tennis will use the power of data to put a world-class coaching experience within reach of every student.
With that in mind, we built GGTracker for Starcraft maniacs. Chess is next.
Our core technologies today are AngularJS, Ruby, and Python; happy to adopt new tech that's right for the job. "Big data" and quantitative experience are nice to have but not required.
How to apply
Please email to [address removed], including your resume. Please put the name of your favorite game stratagem in the title of your email, so that I can tell you actually read this post. Or if you don't have a favorite, you can just use "CHEAT TO WIN".
