An experienced duo is getting their second startup off the ground and is seeking a third co-founder to round out the team. We are well-financed and have been accepted into one of the top startup accelerator programs in the country.
We are looking for a full-fledged technical co-founder, not a code monkey. The position will be paid and include equity.
We are not new at this. We raised money for our first startup, which garnered press from The Washington Post all the way to Mashable, and sold it to a large company.
We’re getting ready to ride the startup roller coaster once again, only this time with more ups and less downs now that we know what we’re doing. And we want you along for the ride if long hours, fun work environment, low pay, and high equity are your thing.
You also have to be willing to move. We're currently based in DC, but if you haven't noticed this city isn’t exactly the best place to build a startup. SF, Silicon Valley, and Boulder are in the picture.
Our second startup is about online-to-offline social organizing. We’ve already done a lot of customer development work to figure out what it is people want. We have an alpha product in place that we've hacked together to validate the model using static sites, forms, emails, PayPal, etc... We’d love to tell you more in person.
Personality fit is just as important as strong skills and experience but here’s what we’re looking for on a resume:
- You've built things that work...for lots of people.
- You eat big-ass problems for breakfast.
- Deep expertise in 1+ web-dev languages (e.g. PHP, RoR, Python, etc).
- A love for taxonomies and algorithms that help solve complex questions.
- Know your way around front-end languages: HTML, CSS, jQuery, etc.
- Database architecture experience.
- Ability to work alone and lead teams.
- Business jargon like "customer acquisition" and "product/market fit" doesn't make you huddle in the corner in a blanket made of keyboards.
We jive best with other irreverent, funny people who are laid back, don’t take themselves too seriously, and can have intense business arguments without taking anything personally. Do you know who Eric Ries is? If so, we like you already. Do you love The Four Steps to the Epiphany? Sign on the dotted line and marry us please!
