NYC Web Design Meetup Message Board › CTO Position for new NYC based startup (part-time)

CTO Position for new NYC based startup (part-time)

user 13730261
New York, NY
Post #: 1
We are two entrepreneurs, looking for a New York City based partner to round out a management team and come on-board in a CTO role. Our concept is a true web 2.0 idea, with many of the social elements and interaction ideals that people are looking for in a digital experience.

The two existing partners have significant experience in digital strategy, marketing, business and corporate development roles at Fortune 50 companies (and are nice, easy-going guys to boot!) We have deep connections within the venture and angel communities in New York (this concept that has sparked initial interest). However, we need a 3rd partner that can bring our vision to life; we know that our PowerPoint mock-ups won’t get us very far!

Our vision of the ideal partner will be someone that has both digital creative design experience, and the technical expertise to help us develop the necessary infrastructure that will allow us to host and scale the site. At this stage the greater emphasis is on the front-end development work (design & build) and we need someone with a level of technical familiarity of open-source platforms, and 3rd party social APIs.

Please note that both existing partners have not quit their day jobs, and we don’t expect you to at first either. The compensation for the incumbent partner is a founders equity stake in the company. Once the concept goes live and we gain initial traction, we will begin sourcing a seven-figure funding round, with the goal of running this as a full time company sooner rather than later.

Because cash is not on the table, we are not looking for contractors, agencies, or companies. We are looking for a down to earth person that is hungry, can be a team player, and is willing to put in some extra hours on top of their day job.

As a next step, we’d like to meet with interested folks, so please send us your portfolio and resume, and we’ll grab a cup of coffee in Union Square to discuss the opportunity and see if there is a mutual fit. Please email us directly at
