About Stenio

Looking for a co founder that is experienced in website front end using Angular, Ember or plain JQuery/ Ajax/ HTML5. I'm envisioning a lean team, so if you have experience in other areas, such as SEO, sales, social media, or at least have interest in learning and expanding your skills being UI/ UX, even better!

I have over 10 years experience working with small consumer goods business, which gave me insights on the challenges faced by these companies. Based on these challenges, I prepared a several ideas of SaaS (software as a service) products we can offer this audience.

The first one I am already developing - pricerIQ.com, a price list/ quote management solution. Even though there are several ERP solutions in the market that tackle this issue, I didnt find any that is affordable, intuitive and with a good web presence. The time is ripe for disruption!

The traction I got so far:
- presented the concept at a recent tradeshow, got good responses.
- from day one will have at least one paying client (the company I currently work for needs it).
- should have the company incorporated in IL by end of Spring 2015.
- backend is halfway done.

I am doing the backend using Node JS, hosted on a Nginx server at Digital Ocean. Database is Mongo DB but not set in stone. I am doing backend and front end using Ember js at the same time, however I definitely could use help on the front end so I can focus on the selling and the back end.

Interested? Let's grab a coffee! :-)
