We are looking for a mid to senior PHP Developer to join our very unique company. This is a working partner/equity position.
Launched in 2005, we were the first internet company to develop a truly creative solution to a billion dollar problem in the wireless space. In addition to our innovative flagship property, we have recently launched a new application competing with eBay, craigslist, and other classified communities in the wireless category.
We have a "real revenue" model, but we need brainpower and fresh talent to make it hum. This is a working partner/equity position.
The company is made up of a powerful founder entrepreneur duo. We have had numerous top-shelf investment interest, but we need to build out the management team and finish developing the platform.
Our established online community has been featured in every major media outlet you can imagine and multiple times, i.e. CNN, Wall street journal, NYT, Wired, Money, entrepreneur mag, etc.
The person who joins us will be comfortable in a early-stage, pre-VC environment, and have the talent, vision, entrepreneurial, and management ability to drive the company forward.
Your roles and responsibilities would include working directly with marketing and wireless technology partners, new application and module development, regularly expanding site features and social web, and eventually managing a junior developer(s) either in-house or abroad.
If you want to take the next step in your career, yet want to have a true sense of pride and ownership in the growth of the company you're building, then this a major life opportunity for you!
You MUST live in the tri-state area or be willing to move in order to be considered for this working partner/equity position.
We are driven and very ambitious, but very easy to work with. Let's make tons of money, have fun, and help people in the process.
Telecommuting and current job continuance is built into the strategic plan until certain revenue markers are met, and/or second stage financing is secured.
We are in no rush. If you have serious skills you can bring to the table, we want to hear from you.
