    I've been the CTO of two startups now, and am looking around for my next role. If you're looking for an experienced technologist who also has entrepreneurial experience, message me.

    I cannot make to this meet up. I have a last minute emergency to attend. I do freelance website design part time and a performance engineer and open to QA and website designing opportunities. If you are willing to contact me - email me at [masked]

  • Rob M.

    Sure looks like a large group. It might be difficult to find the right people, going in blind (so to speak). I've to a prototype for a new product, but i'll need a team to bring it out of the lab and into the market. That means software & hardware design, marketing, and finance. If you are talented, and willing to take on the challange of building a piece of the future, let me know.

    I'll be at the MeetUp, but it may be better to contact me via this system to start off.

  • Michael O.

      Michael, my company Offshorent provides a unique "Offshore Center As A Service" model where we help you interview and select candidates from a pool of candidates interviewed by our recruiters. In this model, we give more control, reliability and quality than any other offshore models. Additionally the cost is about 30 to 50% less than other offshore models. It is just like having your own remote employees, from hiring to firing. I work with a number of companies from Philly already.
      Happy to provide more details.

      Michael, that goes for you too :) hope to see you at the next event.
