Helping Athletes Find the Best Sports Camps and Private Coaches (Sportd.com) - Co-Founders Wanted

by
Looking for: Biz developer, Designer, Developer, Engineer, Marketer, Product manager, Sales person
tl;dr - I have a live web app and i'm looking for co-founders. A Ruby-on-Rails Developer and a Growth Hacker (or whatever they're calling it these days)

Our platform makes it super easy for parents to find the best sports camps and local coaching for their athlete. What Yelp did for finding the best local businesses, we are doing for finding the perfect coach. Parents will be able to find the coach that is the best fit for their athlete, not the one that paid to be at the top of Google. Athletes will get the quality coaching they deserve, parents will throw away less of their hard earned money, and great coaches will finally reach the athletes that need their help.

With over 40,000 camps listed, we are in a position where we can grow very quickly if we build the right team.

I am an NFL kicker/Rails developer looking for a few talented and driven individuals to join me as co-founders. I have been working to build this company full-time for a year and a half. It's at the point where I need to grow the team in order for Sportd to reach the next level. Each co-founder will receive 20% equity, vested over 4 years.

Co-founders that could commit to 15-20 hours per week would be great. If you can work more, that would be even better! Obviously the more time we put in, the more we will get out of it. We don't have any revenue or funding to take paychecks from, so it's completely understandable if you need a paying job in the meantime.

The ideal team would consist of an individual focused on business growth, a lead rails developer, and myself (an amalgamation of the two).

( If you're an awesome designer, marketer, etc, I'd be more than happy to consider adding more co-founders! )

Let me go into a little more detail about the two roles:

Business Development / Marketing / Growth + Traction
- Basically whatever it takes to grow the business.
- You have to be a doer and a learner.

Ruby on Rails Developer
- Ability to handle any aspect of a Rails app. From front-end (html/css/js) to hosting (currently heroku). Really nothing too crazy.
- 2+ years of rails development
- Passion for building really awesome, user centered apps
- Pretty strong hold on good ux/ui design


If you're interested, please e-mail me a little more about yourself! I'd love to see any projects or startups you've worked on in the past.

Lets build something awesome!
