    I'm not trying to post jobs on here in the way that they are posted on craigslist even though my title seems it that way.

    I feel comfortable coming to RealJock and seeking out a developer in NYC because RJ is an online community. I don't see CL that way at all.

    Here's my predicament. I am building a start-up in Brooklyn around a mobile app that will not just be a fun new quickly forgettable game. This company will be a platform for huge international growth on many levels. I'm not here to waste anyone's time or blow smoke where other things should be placed.

    My strengths do not lie in the actually development, coding, etc.

    I need a web and app developer who is willing to work for with me for potential equity in the company and possibly the position of CTO. I'd love it if there was someone in the NYC area who could join me on this venture.

    I've spoken to VCs and this app needs to be up and running with some traction for them to even consider a partnership.

    I'm not screaming this concept to everyone because it could easily be taken. Agreements will be signed and witnessed by my lawyer.

    I can only offer potential equity and a lead position in a company that will be a huge game-changer in the tech industry.

    Why posting on RJ? Somehow I trust that I will get genuine responses here.

    Experience with video application is a huge plus!

    Send me a message (mail) if interested.

    Wishing you much success. When I was a bit younger than you I started a software company with a friend from college in my NYC studio apartment. 25+ years later we're still in business, have 15 employees and have been profitable since the 1990s.

    After the first few years which saw more $$$ go out than come in, that business has been my source of financial stability and it has enabled me to have another job which I do for fun. icon_wink.gif

    If you want to discuss, feel free to email me here.

    I suspect LinkedIn might be a good way to find someone. They have a jobs section.

    (no, I wear out google when I program. I'm hardware.)
