Entrepreneur looking for a Programmer for long-term partnership
LAMP developer with a high aptitude for UI/UX design. Front end design skills is a plus but by no means a requirement.
Digital startup Interactive Sports Network, LLC (ISN) is seeking a founding Programmer/Developer to help transform the world of youth sports media!
ISN was established in 2008 in New York City. The company is backed by sophisticated angel investors and a board of advisors that include some of the top executives in the digital media and sports industries.
ISN currently operates www.HockeyBarn.com, one of the leading online destinations in youth and amateur ice hockey with a current base of 3,000 members and 10,000 monthly unique visitors. HockeyBarn.com offers profile-building tools to young players seeking to promote their hockey identity online. This includes the ability to archive statistics, showcase photos and videos, and connect with teammates and fans.
We are looking for a developer (rock star developers only!) to build out our product and help us reach every youth hockey player in North America. Taking a niche market approach, future initiatives will involve football, basketball, soccer, baseball?the real breadwinners.
Ideal candidates will be?
- Rock star LAMP developers. The current platform is PHP-based. A great developer is far more than just a good coder.
- Entrepreneurial. The position is equity-based and part-time. We are looking for someone who is going to treat this project as a true co-founding entrepreneur would. This means working like an entrepreneur on the business during part-time or off-hours, being compensated as an entrepreneur (ie. taking equity), and being rewarded as an entrepreneur (having full license and cashing out when we grow or exit). NOTE: The company CEO is also PT and equity-based.
- We are growing our business as a marathon, not a sprint. We are seeking a nights and weekends warrior that will have another job(s) as their first priority ? though HockeyBarn should become their passion.
- You will not be asked to contribute any capital into the business.
Preference given to?
- Developers with design skills.
- Located in New York, San Francisco, or Los Angeles.
- Experience in Facebook integrations.
A sampling of cool projects you will be working on?
- Facebook Connect integration and FB application development.
- Maintaining existing site features and building new features.
- Creating a HockeyBarn widget for integration on team and league websites.
- Migrating the platform onto future domains in other sports.
- And, pending your input, much, much more?!
This project has very large exit and monetization potential.
