Entrepreneurs gonna entrepreneur. I have a new startup! We are building something consumer-facing, something social — all the things I love best — for optimal founder-market fit!. It’s crazy times in the Valley and while I prefer doing startups when the going’s tough, money is scarce, and talent is thick on the ground — the best time to start a company is always two years ago, and the next best time is now. So now it is.
We are funded by my buddies at True Ventures (especially Jon Callaghan & Tony Conrad, rockingest investors this side of rock), my very own fund Founder Collective (with Dave Frankel, Eric Paley, Chris Dixon, Zach Klein, Bill Trenchard et al.), SV Angel (including David Lee and Ron Conway, Godfather of the Internet), Betaworks and independent angels, friends and family such as Keith Rabois, James Joaquin, Shoshana Berger and The Best Sister in the World.
You can sign up to get launch announcements and be a beta tester by joining our mailing list.
And we are hiring both back end & front end engineers. We’re working primarily in Ruby on Rails, using Backbone.js, and jQuery mobile. We are located in San Francisco, in Hayes Valley. If this sounds appealing, email us your resume and tell us about yourself.
UPDATE: Whoa! I changed “engineers are unemployed” to “talent is thick on the ground” — Someone wrote recently that he knew it was a bubble when it was easier to raise money than hire engineers and that was what I was thinking of when I wrote that. Came across the opposite as how I meant it. Thanks for pointing that out, various folks!
