Looking for a few good developers to join Wamily (Ruby on Rails)

A former member
Post #: 3
Hey guys, I'm looking for a 2 or 3 motivated, driven, talented and cool developers (both UI and application developers) to join my awesome "social collaboration" project, Wamily. Some of you may have met me at one of the past Meetups (last month I was the guy blabbing on about RailsConf for an hour), and maybe you've gotten a chance to check out Wamily in its alpha version -- If not, go to­ and use invite code DLFBZM.

Well, we're pushing hard toward a public beta that we want to be ready in September, and we're looking for a few good Rubyists to join on now so we can ramp up and take over the world (!). Here's the skinny ...

What you want: You want to improve your Rails skills while working on a cool public-facing application that has lots of sex appeal. You want a glimmer of hope for a way out of your current boring development job. You want to work with a team of smarties that really loves what they do.

What you need: You need a good bit of web development experience under your belt -- if you're still a sorta newbie on Rails, that's ok (as long as you're a quick learner). You need consistent 10 to 15 hours a week to dedicate to this project. You need a laptop. You need to make sure it's ok with your employer that you can work on a for-profit side project.

What you'll do: We'll try to meet one or two evenings a week somewhere in ATL to teach, mentor, and discuss Rails and Wamily's development plan. Then you'll take home a chunk of functionality to hammer out. You'll have plenty of support, but you'll be expected to figure a lot of it out on your own. Some of the cool things we're currently working on: a Ruby implementation of the Google AdSense API, integration with Facebook's API, a system of syndicating content with e-mail notifications and XML feeds, building our own super-awesome Wiki engine ... and a bunch more.

What you'll get: Depending on your experience and time commitment, you'll get some percentage of equity in Wamily. We're currently un-funded and totally bootstrap, so there is no cash compensation at this time. Of course, you'll also get some killer Rails experience, and that warm fuzzy feeling that you're doing something cool that could change the world.

What you'll wish for: When Wamily becomes popular and successful (and more financially sound), if you're good enough you'll be invited to join the team full time and can kiss that boring job goodbye. And that equity percentage that you've earned might be really worth something!
