Looking for a badass PHP developer (preferably with experience having worked for companies like Microsoft or Google):
Here's my hopes: A sick dev that has worked for a huge company that broke off to start their own project and it didn't go so well so they're back on the grind looking to become part of a bigger team.
Here's what we've got: A fantastic concept, a fantastic designer, a beautiful looking product that has no backend. We've been working for 14 months and have a site marked up and how it should work but have had no luck finding a solid developer that will take us by the hand and say hey this is what you need to do to make this work.
Here's what it is: A social network, but much more than that. I won't go into details here but we can setup a private meeting. Most people say their concept is good but we actually have something to show, and investors like it.
Here's the problem: without a solid dev, who gets it, we've had to work with companies in India and the Ukraine that have been all hype but no results (not to say all companies abroad suck)it's just that the ones we've been working with do.
We prefer someone in America who is a lone gun and understands how to architect something to work. Bugs are a given but if we can get this product to launch in a few months we can get serious funding because our CEO is very well connected and in this day and age that's all that matters.
Anyone out there, from America, who speaks English and isn't afraid to poke and prod under the hood, ask questions, and overall feel a part of something that truly has potential please give us a shout, we need you.
So here's my desperate attempt to reach out to a real talent in Developing web applications, we want to hear from you.
Pay won't be huge maybe 2-3k a month but with stock options, we are a serious structured corporation registered in Delaware, we're looking for that person with absolute faith in what they do who want to see an app that is nothing short of beautiful in it's looks and function (that would be your part).
We explain how everything needs to work, but we need a pro to say to make it work. Understand that if we can show proof of concept we're on to our next big round of funding and that's when it gets interesting and for the right dev lucrative as for the other 2 co-founders. We want more than a contractor we want someone who will be proud to be part of this company.
Nothing is perfect no team is the coolest, everything has its ebb and flow but for someone with vision they will be able to see our value proposition.
Thanks for your time.
