About cwikla

My last gig was a startup studio with a couple of other partners. Launched a couple of projects and after four years we went our separate ways. I love going from idea, to whiteboard to getting something out the door. I'm skilled across the entire stack and make systems that run themselves. I've been CTO/VPE of several companies over the years, some very successful, some no so much. I love to program, and I'll never stop.

I'm attacking the recruiting space in a unique way, if that is something that interests you, let's talk. I'm looking for partners who want to collaborate, work hard, fast and create a product that customers won't be able to live without.

Are you one of these?

A non-stop business person who can succeed and will do whatever it takes to get that next customer or user.

A(n?) UX/UI person who can make my ugly shit pretty. And more importantly understands how to drive users to actionability and makes them happy.

An engineer with some great front end or full stack chops (I'm using Rails, React, ElasticSearch and other things...) so we can split the work.

If you are interested in the recruiting space, I can show you what I'm building and we can talk about how to make it big.

I'm working on this full time, if you can't for now, we might be able to work something out. I'm more interested in finding the right people.

Check out my LinkedIn profile to see my background. Please have a LinkedIn link so I can look at yours.

If you are looking for technical help for your startup, more than happy to chat and talk.
I work out of my place in SOMA, but I can be found at breweries around the area too on sunny afternoons. If you need some general technical/project management questions answered, I'm more than happy to chat/help if you buy me a beer :).

Please note: I am not looking to take over for your offshore/contractor so you can have a non-paid full stack developer for some small amount of equity.
