Start-up seeking technical partner - read if you're tired of corporate

A former member
Post #: 5
Who are we?
I am part of a 2-person start-up looking for our third partner to round up our team. We are both fairly young, ambitious and want the flexibility that most corporate jobs cannot provide. We both have technical backgrounds (BS CS) and have worked in engineering, product management/marketing and business development positions. We work continually to learn and improve ourselves business-wise, technically and spiritually.

What do we stand for?
We believe in integrity, trust, respect and want to create an entity where each of our partners and employees will experience a true feeling of belonging and will therefore grow with us as we adapt and innovate. We see it lacking in the workplace and that is what motivated us in this direction.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for someone who we will have chemistry with and complement the team. It's crucial that you have the same goals and mindset as us:
1) To work for yourself
2) To revel in the challenge of creating a company from the ground up
3) To create value and be financially rewarded
4) To have the flexibility to pursue important things in life, be it children, parents, passions, what have you
5) To be able to take a calculated risk, as you will not be paid until we begin generating profit. Fortunately, given the business we are pursuing, we expect that to happen as early as 3 months after our first offering launches. Bear in mind that we will be taking the same risk as you and that you will be an equal partner in all respects, ie. we will most probably form an LLC

What skills are we looking for?
From a responsibilities standpoint, you are:
1) A skilled web developer
2) Proficient in HTML, CSS as well as what it takes to build a clean, appealing front-end and a solid back-end, be it PHP/ASP/AJAX/Javascript etc.
3) Creatively able though this is definitely not a requirement, eg. Flash
4) Proficient in working with relational databases; must know SQL
5) Ideally a technical undergrad major or have a good understanding of basic computer science concepts. We will also be happy to interview college students

What are we building?
We will disclose more if you decide to send in your resume. At a high level, you will help us build an integrated advertising framework that will reap efficiencies across all of its components. We will be targetting a growing and relatively untapped area. We are familiar with this industry and are therefore able to leverage our experience and contacts. The financial return is fairly quick and will directly correlate to how hard we work.

If you are interested in learning more about our vision and meeting us in person, please reply with your resume and a short personal note about yourself and why this position interests you.

Thank you.
