CTO Co-Founder Needed

Looking for: Developer, Engineer
I plan to revolutionize the existing retail model and change the way people shop. Want to join me?

I am looking for a co-founder who would assume the role of CTO. Experience with mobile apps is a must. Experience with creating software to manage vast amounts of data is also a must.

The mobile commerce market is expected to boom with US revenues reaching $23.8 billion in 2015 from $2.4 billion in 2010. Companies are eager to pursue this space, but all that I have researched have yet to capitalize appropriately on the opportunity.

I believe putting forth a mobile app using the new retail model I have developed will allow us to move forward where others have not. The model is appealing to both consumers and retailers. The model also includes different monetization channels for us from the outset (that do not include charging for the app).

Obviously, this is a big idea that will require a significant amount of work. However, as CTO, I would not expect you to single-handedly build the platform out on your own. I envision that first we work together in determining the best way forward from a technology standpoint. Then, you will probably need to develop a scaled-down prototype that we could use for market validation and in funding presentations. Then, the funding would presumably allow us to hire additional developers/engineers for you to oversee in building out the platform.

I've put together a pitch deck and a business plan, although both would have to be revised pending our discussion.

Other details:

This would be for sweat equity of 50/50.

My preference would be for you to be based in Southern California or near the region, so we could meet more easily.

Please read my profile for additional info on me.
