Start-up is looking for a technical smart ass–funding available, but don’t get greedy

  • Great web/social commerce idea – check
    Stable revenue streams identified, not user or ad funded – check
    Concept sanity check with ~50 experts from different areas – check
    Great diverse team (min. 33% female) – check
    Funding for first steps – check
    Technical lead – X

    We are a motivated team with diverse backgrounds and a hell of an idea in the area of social commerce. We are looking for an additional team member, who is willing to become part of the team and take over responsibility as technical leader.

    This requires:
    - the ability to develop a detailed technical concept of a web platform,
    - to decide on architecture based on facts – not on religious believes or the only thing you usually apply
    - to select and manage programmers with the required skills
    - common understanding of web related languages and current trends
    - knowledge of common social network APIs (e.g., open graph/OAUTH)
    - a little bit of programming experience yourself
    - the willingness to look beyond your tasks and area of responsibility and to keep the big picture in mind

    We know quite well what we are able to do and where we lack knowledge and experience, therefore we are looking for a technician with an entrepreneurial mindset and the drive to translate ideas into reality. The available funding will lower the pain, but won’t make you rich…at least at the beginning ;-)

    So if our non-technical job description did not scare you too much and if you are about to burst with curiosity, we are looking forward to receive your application:

    PS: Don´t be fooled by the way this was written. We are professionals and work with full commitment and all due seriousness. But at the same time are also looking for an individual who fits the team.
