Thank you for giving me the opportunity to address your group meeting on Tuesday evening regarding the java developer position I have available with my startup.
The development company I hired out of Boston to develop my a web app went out of business with my project at the 5 yard line. It was developed using Java and MySQL databases but the developers used their proprietary software for the actual development portion. I’ve had two outside developers look at their work and he confirmed that it was good work but that someone would have to get acquainted with their software OR migrate it off their software so standard development software can work on it (I am told their proprietary system was developed with such a migration in mind). Both of these developers were interested in the project but had full time jobs and could not dedicate the time necessary to complete this project in a timely fashion.
Overview of the Company:
Coming from a background in real estate and property management, I started a company that solves a huge, real pain in the residential real estate marketplace – the applications process for renting properties. Our company enables renters to apply online and get all of their applicable information verified prior to looking for (and applying for) rental properties and then shares that information with landlords at the request of renters. There is a significant cost and times savings to both the renters and landlords in addition to many, many other benefits. There is a whole lot more to the business that I will share if someone is qualified and interested.
The initial market research and testing for this concept has been overwhelmingly favorable from both renters and landlords. I have multiple investors lined up for this project but I’m looking to do a soft launch of the site to get some empirical data to improve the valuation of the company and terms from the investors. In addition, the money from the investors will be used to develop a whole new site with all the bells and whistles that will make this site a huge success. (The current site was developed as the MVP model for just proof of concept.)
What I’m looking for:
I’m looking for a local qualified and passionate developer who wants to work with a startup. They must be CURRENTLY AVAILABLE and will be responsible for finishing up the site, helping launch it and then maintaining the site moving forward. The developer needs to be local to the Atlanta area, currently available to work on this project part time (ideally full time) to get it up and launched and then be available to manage/debug/improve the site moving forward. The developer will also be crucial in the architecting, planning and development of the full website once the money is raised from the investors.
If the site cannot be easily migrated off the current proprietary system and it will be quickest/easiest to redevelop it, then that is something I’m also willing to consider.
The compensation for this project can be done in cash but I prefer equity b/c equity aligns everyone’s incentives properly.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in OR you know someone who fits what I’m looking for, please email or call me. I will gladly buy your group a round of donuts for your next meeting if this pans out.
Thanks for your time.
