About Ben

Serial entrepreneur. Prior exit from one of the largest marine rental companies in the US; developed a real-time reservation system to leverage individual and marina-owned assets to scale the business to other locations. Increased gross revenues of first marina partner from $175K to $1M within the first 4 months of partnership.

Looking for a CTO / lead engineer to join current team. Must be passionate about leveraging technology to solve social problems. We're tackling some fun real-life problems surrounding demand prediction, supply chain management, eta estimation, etc. We've had some great success and traction in our private beta and are funded.

The majority of people who drink and drive do so because they need their cars the next day for work or family related obligations. Our apps and service solve that problem and more (read: nightlife, medical, geriatrics). We’re creating a marketplace to deliver safety and convenience wherever people live, work, and play.

Customers can hire a driver for their car or ride in one of ours with the push of a button, watch their driver arrive in real-time on a map, and enjoy automated payments.

Here are the kinds of skills we're looking for:

-Significant programming experience in Obj-C, Ruby, JavaScript
-Experience developing, releasing, and maintaining large-scale software applications
-Understand real-time failover principles, processes and architectures
-Experienced in developing custom solutions for systems monitoring, deployments, continuous integration, etc.
-Superstar at debugging during emergency situations
-Self-starters who take pride and ownership of their work
-Great communicators
-Ability to work in a dynamic team
