About Christian

The company:

Giving good gifts is tough. If you've ever been getting ready for a friend's birthday or housewarming and suddenly remember you need to get a gift (and have no idea what to get!), Flipgift is here to help. Combining high quality, user-specific gift options with an innovative fulfillment model (enabling truly last minute but high quality gifts), Flipgift seeks to revolutionize the way give gifts.

About you:

From my years leading teams of skilled professionals and working with senior executives, there are only a few "must haves" I'm looking for in a co-founder or senior team member:

- Passion: I need someone to share my vision, be a creative problem-solver, and to give it their "all" to make something great. If you're a passionate software developer or ecommerce/retail/gifts veteran looking for something you can sink your teeth into, I want to talk to you.

- Smarts & skills : To build a great team I'm looking for great people with the smarts and skills to help the company succeed. Right now primarily looking for full stack developer interested in being a CTO/VP Eng,. On the business side folks with marketing experience in ecommerce/retail/gifts.

- Communication & teamwork: Willing to give feedback, open to receiving feedback, and committed to making the company a success both in terms what we achieve but also how we achieve it (building a place where people love to work).

Nice to haves: Experience in retail, ecommerce, logistics, or gifts.

About me:

Professional background: Passionate entrepreneur who loves ideas and nerds out on the opportunities in inefficient markets. Strategy, marketing, and finance experience (3-5 years in each). Many years leading strategy and marketing teams both internally (major global biotechnology firms) and externally (management consulting, including omni-channel strategy for major retail brands). This is the second company I've started.
