StartupStay.com is a Global Community for Entrepreneurs who Travel.
-Stay with & host like-minded entrepreneurs
-Build meaningful relationships/ gain local insights
-Avoid accommodation costs
We have launched 16 weeks ago and as of November we already have 5,000 + members in more than 1000 cities and 105 countries. We have also generated some great experiences. So far, we?ve bootstrapped the project working with contractors and have produced a robust web MVP which people are loving. With a proven concept, it?s now time to bring a CTO on board. Someone that can share our vision but most importantly: Shape it.
We see the current MVP which is focused on hospitality exchange evolve into a bigger platform that facilitates face-to-face encounters & travelling for entrepreneurs. Are up for the challenge? You will bring Startup Stay to the next level, both on the web application and conceiving the mobile version/app.
Joining Startup Stay as the CTO:
You will join two co-founders Fred, the CEO is based in London (TechHub @ Google Campus) and I, Facundo, the CPO based in Dublin. We have worked together in dozens of web projects. Fred heads the community and is more business/online marketing oriented and I am more strategic/technical. We are quite ?hands-on? and fond of lean methodologies. You will get equity in the company. We are raising investment in the upcoming months and will start monetising the platform next year, which means that we will offer a competitive salary in due course and in the meantime we offer an equity vesting schedule.
Full time. Your location is not a problem but must be GMT +-3
We would like to work with a CTO that really likes the Startup Stay concept.
As a CTO you will define and implement our web and mobile strategy. You will eventually form and lead a bigger team. We hope you inspire us all!
Technical aspects: We will initially rely on you coding and guiding contractors on specific tasks/help as you may require until we grow the team. The site is currently built on PHP & My SQL but we are happy to explore better ways of doing things with your lead.
Please remember to share your Github url/portfolio and links to live projects so we can learn more about your work.
