ResearchMob looking for Lead Dev / VP Eng / CTO

From: user 7.

ResearchMob is a stealth-mode, pre-launch startup that aims to shake up the market research industry. This is an established (no market risk) and good-sized (read: lucrative) market, but the status quo customer experience ... sucks, and we aim to change that. We've validated the market need, we've come up with a business model that isn't ad-supported or "we'll make it up as we go," and now we need your help to build a killer product.

If you're interested, contact Jim Lindstrom ([address removed]).


ResearchMob is looking to bring on a lead developer / VP engineering / CTO (depending on experience) as the third member of our founding team.
