Entrepreneurial minds are looking for a like minded individual to build and lead a team of passionate talents for the purpose of helping tech entrepreneurs build viable and valuable solution.
After years of startup experience, a year ago, we launched a technology hub that aims to work with passionate entrepreneurs from the ideation stage until finding product market fit by providing them with all the necessary resources to build promising startups. Great individuals with unique value propositions came on board and are now in the fundraising stage after proving the viability of their solutions.
We learned, observed and defined how we can serve these entrepreneurs more efficiently. Today, we are in search of a passionate, talented and hard working tech lead who will be part of a growth team and responsible for turning great designs into web and mobile applications with maximum performance and stability.
• We value positive attitudes, creativity, problem solving and highly encourage entrepreneurial initiatives.
• The venture is built on value exchange meaning that the more value we contribute to it, the more value we get out of it. This is important because one of the things we highly encourage is creative initiatives by all of us which enables us to pursue internal projects aimed to add value to the company. We are compensated for such initiatives as well.
• Like us, we look for a leader who is willing to go above and beyond to meet and exceed monthly, quarterly and yearly goals. One whom we can call ‘partner’.
