About us

Hi! We're Alex(andra) and Oli(ver). Creative marketeers by day, trailblazers by night. Last summer we came up with a game-changing 'social adventure' app idea, born out of our personal need for it to exist. It helps people meet other new people for fun times, but not in a cringey ‘let’s be friends’ way. We quickly realised we were onto something special, 'cause everyone we told about it wanted it in their lives... ASAP. So we set out to make that happen. We found ourselves an awesome UX/UI designer, and got things underway. Our MVP (iOS, Android to follow later) is currently under development (due for March completion) and now we're looking to grow the team and take things to the next level.

 

We are self-funded to date, and intend to keep it that way for our launch in August. We have a solid monetisation plan that hopefully means by December we’ll all be in a position to go full-time, with pay! J. Of course, we will all have to invest maaaanny unpaid hours before then. By December we should also have enough traction to build a very strong case for investment on decent terms, if we decide we need it (perhaps not). We are looking for a visionary CTO to join us on this journey, and will reward the right person with a 20% equity share (with vesting) in the company. Salary terms to be discussed.

 

About you

You are (or will be) an impressive and personable CTO. Your energy is limitless, and when you believe in something, you will do anything to see it succeed. You understand how quickly things move, and are constantly thinking, innovating, and adapting. You're a team player and easy to get on with. You also sociable, down-to-earth and up-for-a-laugh.  You understand the significance of the industry we operate in, and the possibilities it provides its users. You are a user and an advocate of its technologies. You embody the idea.

 

Interested?

1. Swipe to Super-Like (alternatively send us some more information about you, your background, your interests, and your finest selfie... if you're that way inclined!).

2. Stare unerringly at your phone and await a response (we promise to reply). If it's a mutual match, we'll arrange a drink together.

3. Meet up with us to hear more about the idea, and decide whether or not you can imagine sharing a fair few late-night pizzas/beers with us, on our journey to global takeover!
