Hey every one!
I am on a hunt to find a developer for my new Toronto Based Start up. (you don't have to be in Toronto or even Canada)
I am in the early stages of development, but we have a "working" title, that I own the domains for. I have been in contact with advisers and investors located here in Toronto Canada to fund the project.
I was offered seed money privately from an investor but he suggested that I build a prototype and then he would bring me to the rest of his partners in order to get real money. This is the route I have decided to follow as It will benefit the company in the long run. He told me that he loved my idea, and loved my ideas for monetizing.
I am excited to get the ball rolling on my start up. and get a prototype built within the next few months.
Lets get to the details:
-I don't have much skill at development. I do know some very basic web design and have worked a lot with different CMS, but have never built anything major. So I don't know exactly what will be required to build a prototype.
-That being said, im 100% sure of 1 thing: NO FLASH!
-From what i understand that would mean most of the development would be done in HTML5, and Java, but other than that you may have ideas in what other code would be best.
-We would need to build a voting system
-an audio player
-the site will be heavily based on the social interactions between users, so user profiles will also need to be built.
1) Project Details: (be as specific as possible): We are currently in the early stages, but would be willing to offer equity incentives (a percentage of the company), and when we take the company back to the investor you will be offered a full time position as "Senior VP of development" and if already not in Toronto you will be flown out, and offered a very competitive salary. You will also receive a Cash Bonus, to be paid weather or not you decide to join the company full time.
2) Payment method/ details (Paypal, check? Timeline?): you can be payed how ever you proffer, paypal, or check when that time comes. I would like to have a solid prototype that we can call a beta and have a small set of beta users built within 3-4 months. (this timeline is something we will have to discuss)
