VITAPEEPS: We Make the Everyday Process of Finding Fun Things to Do Effortless

by
Looking for: Developer, Engineer
ABOUT THE COMPANY: 
VitaPeeps is a meetup network that fills the gap between serendipitous meetups and big events. Our mission is to make the everyday process of finding fun things to do, among local friends and people that share the same passions, effortless. We believe that this is an important aim because the more people engage in meaningful offline interactions, the better the world will be (particularly, since the alternative is a world where people mostly engage online).

At the heart of VitaPeeps are small impromptu mini-meetups, which are frequently posted because of our 1-click meetup functionality. Overtime, we will become the dominant meetup discovery platform, and we will implement a revenue model much like Google Adwords, but specifically for meetups.


WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:  
An extraordinary developer/engineer in the Silicon Valley area

My strengths are in product management, design, marketing, sales, and analytics.  I will be doing all the business development, legal, tax, design, market testing, etc.

I need a developer that will really add value alongside me, so that we can raise the money needed to scale out the vision and to create a new meetup category in the general social networking space. I am currently working on VitaPeeps full-time and am looking for a developer that can also commit full-time (and at the very least half time or 20h/week).
