Barter Friendly Web Designer/Dev Needed

StartUP-header-BoxI have a bit of an unusual collaboration to propose. My company facilitates bartering for small businesses. But in addition to being a bartering network for entrepreneurs/businesses, we are committed to demonstrating the viability of bartering in business as a successful strategy by building our business thru barter alone. That is, we will barter for everything we need to get our business started including logo, website, office space etc. We hope you will join us in this experiment/endeavor.

Currently, we are signing on pre-launch members. Our website isn’t developed yet but we still have a fully-functioning private network with over 100 members. I actively facilitate trades for our members using our point system. So, once we agree to a fair dollar amount for your services, I give you that amount in purchasing credit.

If you are willing to design/code our website (maybe design a logo too), we will give you purchasing points to buy a number of things like airline tickets, vacation packages, laptops, rental car services, tech and non-tech products and a host of other professional/personal services. Also, if you want specific items/services –I’ll make aggressive efforts to have them offered on our network so that you can use your points to purchase one or several of those items.

Additionally, as one of our founding barter partners, you or your company will be featured broadly in our newsletters, press releases and blogs.

What do you think? Please be in touch. I think we can have an interesting and mutually beneficial collaboration.

C++ Developer Looking For New Opportunities

  • Listed: May 17, 2010 6:58 am
  • Expires: 24 days, 5 hours

Experienced C++ (Linux/Unix) developer is looking for new opportunities.

I have been part of two prior startups (one successful) in the Electronic Design Automation industry.  I am open to any role: co-founder, partnership, employee, or contract developer as long as I find the work interesting and challenging.

I am not necessarily looking for opportunities in the chip design software area as I would  probably prefer development in another industry segment.

I am located in Southern California but can travel  (especially to the Bay Area) as needed. Relocation is a possibility for the right opportunity.

We are a garage-stage company (pre-funding, working prototype) with the ambition to make the taxi industry dramatically more customer-friendly and get a solid chunk of a $200M market in the US.

We are looking for a cofounder whose initial responsibility will be to take the solution to market (That means doing some strategic thinking along with plenty of hands-on market research to better understand market dynamics, selling the solution etc…).

If you are self-motivated & inspired by an opportunity to impact millions while carving out a big future for yourself, by all means send an email to hugo(at)nextgencab(dot)com. Big plus if you are familiar with the concepts of lean startup and customer development.

what is the concept and how does it differ from sites like ubercab?

It’s classifieds for startups
