Welcome to the "Web Projects" forums. Before you post, make sure you've selected the correct category based on the size of your project (in US dollars), or whether it is a partnership or "looking for work" request instead. Observe the guidelines for this section:
To all thread starters, check your "pm" box for responses, as that's how bidders will be communicating with you mainly using. You can turn on new pm notification by going to "User CP"-> "Edit Options"-> "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages".
To respondents, avoid replying to a thread with a short generic response like "pm sent" as much as possible. It is pointless and clutters up the screen.
To respondents, don't reply to a work request with a summary of your resume. If you're not willing to spend the time to at least read the request and respond specifically to the request, then don't reply. The Web Projects forum isn't a place to get your resume/ portfolio posted on as many threads as possible, it's for the direct, human interaction between coder and client. Members who blanket the forums with their resume replies will be treated as spammers and banned.
To all thread starters, please update your thread's prefix to "resolved", when you've found a coder for your project or partnership (or wish to terminate the request). This is so coders don't waste time bidding on an invalid project. To do this, click on the "Edit" button under the first post of the thread, then the "Go Advanced" button. You have 14 days to update your thread's title.

Timing, location, and compensation
We are close to kicking off a seed capital fundraising round. The Lead Developer will not be required to join full-time or even moonlight during the fundraising process. Thus, while the Lead Developer will be expected to fully commit to the venture, they will be able to maintain their current employment, if they so choose, in the interim.
Interested candidates must be local or prepared to relocate, and must be authorized to work in the United States.
As a full-time employee, the Lead Developer will receive compensation commensurate with early stage emerging growth companies, including meaningful equity participation and competitive cash compensation.
Please email Kinelam@TeamJunto.com or call 773.987.2671, so that an introductory meeting can be scheduled, after which significantly more information about the venture will be revealed.
