Hey Everyone,
I'm co-founder and sole developer for GoBigWin, a local e-commerce and merchandising startup. We've been around for a few months now and have grown dramatically, shipping 10,000 orders this month. So fast in fact that we have had time to throw together a real microsite for client leads. This started as a side project for me, but with all of my other responsibilities, I no longer have the time required to really take this company to the next level. I've recently taken on a director level role with a large international business, have a wife and kids, etc and unfortunately have no time left to dedicate to growing GoBigWin. That said, I'm looking for someone to take over my role as partner in this venture.

I cannot express how great the rest of the team is. We have an experienced businessman/founder/CEO at the helm along with the best customer service rep I've ever met, and a great/experienced/fast order fulfillment team. And they all have been some of my best friends for the past 5 years, since we met working on zambooie.com (which has since been sold).

We've pulled together a great client list including, but not limited to, Fallout Boy, Ben Folds, Train, Butch Walker, Interpol, Barenaked Ladies, Hole, Sara Bareilles, and Christina Perri.

Our stack includes:
- Rails
- Zurb Foundation
- Resque
- Heroku
- Spree Commerce
- Postgresql
- plutus (Nice double book accounting gem)
- Shipstation (Third party order fulfillment SaaS)

I'm looking for someone who sees the potential in this business, can get along with the crew and can get things done. All developer levels will be considered. The paychecks for now won't be huge and this should be considered more of a side project with a jetpack attached. If you're intereseted, please get in touch ([address removed]). I'd like to match them up with the right person as soon as possible to continue building out new stores for all of our clients.

Thanks,
John Bohn
