Director of Technology / Co-Founder
This is a technology/product management position with co-founder status. The responsibility of this position is to oversee the creation of a mobile app and website that will offer skills games (initially trivia) for prizes, links to social media, ad space, checkout (Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, cryptocurrency, etc). If you can code, great, but its not a requirement as long as you know how to communicate with coders. First deliverable will be a demo/proof-of-concept of the app to use in pitch decks and capital raising. The position will initially work with the CEO on how to bring to life the company vision and translating that to best practices, procedures and technologies to accomplish that. Since this is an online/mobile venture, security is of utmost importance. Database creation, hosting options, maintenance and support will fall under this position's purview as well. Responsibility for hiring internally, internships or outsourcing to meet the requirements of the department and position will be as required.
This is an essential role to launch the website, and hence the startup itself. Ownership percentage and co-founder status are the initial compensation. Growth potential beyond co-founder and ownership stake may be VP of Technology, CTO, or CIO. Salary creation, then stock options will come through the funding process. This role can be full-time, part-time or spare-time depending on your current situation and ability to give time. You will be asked to give only sweat equity and not money. This is a pre-launch startup and understanding what that entails is vital. The idea has been vetted and is viable and is a hybrid of two multi-billion dollar industries.
This will be a remote job. Virtual offices through Regus locations.
