Lovable DoGood Startup (CoupleSpace) Needs UIE savvy Designer (PT) or Advisor (4-5hrs/wk)
If you are yourself one, or know a UX savvy html/css capable web app designer, who is seeking to not only be a cofounder (willing to take some risk to make lots of money) but also to do a huge amount of good/prevent oceans of suffering in the world and might be available at least PT, we are offering generous finder's fee, if the designer you find for us gets us to first round funding.
WHO WE ARE:
CoupleSpace (CS) will be pioneering the first truly robust—highly interactive, sticky, individualizable, hopefully easy to use, viral, and even at times fun web app to enable virtually all couples (especially the 70MM or so unhappy couples who cannot afford or won't trust a therapist, to have stronger happier relationships. The technology and approach can be extended to all dyad relationships and partnerships.
MONETIZATION MODEL: Freemium and monthly subscription (we have the market research to proove the demand). ( AndWe can do at least 8 things a therapist CANNOT do, as well as much of what a therapist can do.). And most therapists look forward to this tool as well.
BIGGER PICTURE: CoupleSpace will therefore pioneer the future of marriage and partnership care and growth in general, by taking the Internet the next step--from creating large quantities of relationships to saving, ensuring, and deepening the quality of our most important relationships: A mission we hope will attract a designer who is motivated by projects higher in purpose than Consumption.
ALSO, the founder of CS, wants to donate most of his own profits to his fellow cofounder's favorite social justice or saving the planet related projects, as well as his own favorites in these two areas, thereby putting Love together with Jusctice and the Pllanet.
COMPENSATION: Though interested seedfunders are hoping we can find a designer true cofounder (I.e. for equity only), just as we have already done with our Ruby Developer team, we know the realities of this search. At the same time we want to know we have someone truly passionate. So assuming we soon--in the next month or so, raise at least enough in seedfunding for the next 3--4 mo to help us finish the beta) , we think there would be at least enough to pay a designer a decent base rate in addition to the the equity.
WHO YOU ARE:
Aside from all the usual requirements (CSS/HTML and UIE savvy), anyone who's had some ups and downs with marriage/committed relationships, and known the pain, would be especially interested in this opportunity to turn your lemons into lemonade.
if you cannot afford the gamble of being the designer yourself, let us know if you'd be a mentor to someone less qualified experience wise, and if you know of such a person (Intern?), since obviously this could be an incredible resume piece, far more captivating than almost anything else out there.
For more info: PLease contact us a CoupleSpcTeam (but put the missing vowels to spell "Space") at gmail, and
put UX savvy Designer (or Design Advisor if no time to be the designer)/DDD Meetup in sub box, and phone # in your sig.
