About Al

Successful entrepreneur seeking technical leader/individual contributor for seed funded high growth startup -- individual contributor for next 6 months ideally moving to CTO/VP Eng role upon closure of next round . Startup is in the connected devices/eHealth space with an exciting product validated by potential customers. Company has working prototypes with 2 years of development already completed. We are seeking a motivated bright capable technical leader/individual contributor with broad technical talents (hardware, software, math, physics, engineering, comp sci experts all invited but expertise must include embedded systems development) who will be 100% hands-on initially and who is committed to taking the company to the next round of funding ( minimum 6 months with commitment to join full time upon successful closure of next funding round). Prefer full time but open to part time. (Hands-on technical engineer/developer only -- no "hands-off" managers.)

My background includes executive/senior roles in 3 successful exits including 1 IPO and 2 acquisitions; previous roles as divisional GM and VP roles leading marketing, product management and engineering. I have also done consulting and been at large and small companies.

What makes this opportunity unique is the timing is perfect, the market opportunity is very large, the technology is way cool and many development risks have already been addressed in 2 years of prototype work done to date.

The ideal candidate is bright, committed, driven, creative and great to work with. Enjoying our work and passion is as essential as working hard is! The most important thing for the next 6 months is a star individual contributor, but upon closing the next round, ideally the person will have the ability to scale to be a star technical leader for the team.

If this interests you, lets meet up.
