Cofounder,Engineer wanted for early stage startup
Thursday, July 26, 2007 3:33 PM
Weblivetalk is an early stage company - and I do
mean early - its basically me, an idea, and some software architecture.
I'm a Stanford engineering alum with several startups under my belt
where I've worked in both marketing and engineering roles. I'm working
on an idea that mashes up many to many audio and video communication
with facebook/myspace profiles and several activities popular with
younger early adopters: web surfing, dating, and reality TV. The market
is huge, the idea is has not been done before, and it enhances consumer
behavior that already exists.
I'm looking for a cofounder, software engineer and architect who
wants to work with me to build an alpha release, raise funding, and
build a team. This will be a sweat equity position for a few months
until we raise funding.
You must be an experienced software
engineer/architect with a visible portfolio of sites in Java, PHP or
Ruby on Rails. The prototype is in Rails, so preference will be given
to those that know Rails or are motivated to learn it quickly. You
should have experience scaling out a web app that can handle tens of
thousands of simultaneous users.
Send a resume and cover letter to [address removed], or see me at the Rails meetup tonite in Mountain View.
