Hi! Philip and Ryan here from the LoveMachine. http://www.lovemachineinc.com We're the founder and one of the creators of Second Life, and we've started a new company.
We're developing several very interesting pieces of software and we might be able to use your help. We're also doing things differently in terms of how we work together:
We don't do interviews, and we don't believe that paying people a monthly salary in exchange for telling them what to do makes sense anymore. It may never have. I know, I know, that's just crazy talk.
How we do things here is different - we have a worklist (http://dev.sendlove.us/worklist/worklist.php ) which contains what we need done and are doing. Find something you want to do and bid on it. Ping us in our journal. We give you a sandbox on our dev system and you do the work. If we like your work and your prices, we give you more stuff to do. There are other devs (and us) in the chat channel to answer questions (http://dev.sendlove.us/journal/ ). If there is something you think we need that's not on the list, tell us.
Also, based on the amount of work you've done, you get bonus money to distribute to everyone else in whatever way you think makes sense. That includes us, the founders. It's a very compelling way of building software. As we become profitable, we'll distribute net income in the same way. This is different than the traditional stock option based startup - we all participate in the success of the company equally and immediately.
We're looking for PHP/MySQL development, iPhone development, QA, and Program Management. We need people that are skilled generalists, fun to work with, and that can be trusted with root on our various machines. This could either be a part-time or full-time thing depending on you and your skills. We're flexible.
Philip and Ryan
