Entrepreneur looking for a Programmer for long-term partnership
Needs to know: Ruby, RoR, PHP, AJAX, Linux
Looking for technical lead/programmer for significant equity in new startup company. 1.0 product is about to launch, but already market changes require a bit of a re-focus/specialization.
Not looking for "just" a contract programmer. Looking for someone who wants to be a partner in the company. Someone who is willing to exchange work for a significant amount of equity (up to 20%) in the new company. Requires someone with the ability to spend a minimum of 25 hrs a week but preferably more.
Ideally the person I am looking for would be a strong technical leader who, after obtaining funding, would aspire to stay on and become a CTO or engineering Director.
I have strong connections to several people in the venture and angel capital field. That networking, in combination with a strong team that I am working to build and a successful launch of the next iteration of the service (that I need your help to build) should improve the chances of being funded and becoming a real company that can hire additional people.
Interested parties, let me know and we can talk more. Strongly prefer someone from the Bay Area in California as future meetings with potential investors and/or demonstrations will definitely be enhanced by having the team come in person.
