ventureangel, inc. (United States, United States)
Posted: 2011-10-26
Type: Fulltime
ventureangel is a very young (less than a month since launch) Atlanta based startup that helps connect entrepreneurs with accredited investors. We want to change the way people share and access business opportunities by building a site that is simple, transparent, efficient and user-friendly.

We are looking for a talented Ruby on Rails wiz to join our small and passionate team as CTO. You’ll be responsible for pioneering, developing, and refining our web application or any subsequent offshoot, in addition to being an owner who helps call the shots. We want a motivated individual who loves what they do and is not afraid to take the reigns on product development and help perfect our product's design and operation. We have an office just outside of downtown Decatur, and offer equity reimbursement. 

We're looking for someone who is willing to take a leap of faith, loves to code and implement new ideas. We love people who think outside the box and are not afraid to try something different and take the necessary risks to create a better product--we want a visionary who desperately desires to create and shape a startup's product. 

We'd love to hear from you, and these are some of the skills we're looking for:
. Strong understanding and experience with Ruby on Rails
. Experience building and deploying web applications
. Experience with relational databases (PostgreSQL)
. Experience with API integration would be awesome
. Knowledge of Javascript, AJAX, and building cool Ux interactions in the view layer

More importantly though, we want to hear from you if the following traits describe you:
. 'Can do' attitude with strong drive and an entrepreneurial spirit
. Creative and flexible approach to development and programming
. Team-player that loves to have fun, but knows when to work hard
. A sense of humor and the ability to handle the inevitable periods of stress with grace

Don't you think it's time we started doing what we always wanted? Thought so... we look forward to hearing from you!
