I am looking for one or two co-founder(s) to develop a totally new kind of search engine. The kind of service I want to build does not yet exist and has some awesome potential due to the scalability and flexibility it offers. This is NOT a web page search engine, although the front end is web-based. Obviously, this is a startup company.
A little about myself… I’m a 26 year old entrepreneur/hacker and I’ve been involved in different startups throughout my life; I started my first company at 13, and it was acquired 2 years later. In fact, I’ve already been through 4 acquisitions. I am a hard working, laid back self-taught coder. I started coding at around age 7. I also went to business school. I’m looking to build an amazing (but small) team of people to create the next great thing in search.
Candidates must have a proven record of success as hackers and great knowledge of cutting edge web technologies and trends: If you haven’t heard of Web 2.0, don’t bother. CS is a big plus. There currently is a urging need for at a search engineer with amazing Ruby on Rails and/or .NET, and Postgresql skills.
Please, no telecommuting. Candidates must be American or Canadian citizens (for obvious visa reasons).
Compensation is significant equity in the beginning and salary as soon as we close an angel funding deal. I’ve already has received some seed funding and I am in contact with a couple angels.
As implied above, I am looking for a co-founder/business partner, not a regular employee. You must be willing to take a certain level of risk and ready to do whatever it takes to make this company successful!
