About Frederick

I'm a 25 yr old, humble yet enthusiastic founder of www.CampusFeed.com.

I started this website/app with the vision of it being the sole source for all university related information (including but not limited to; the latest social media posts, events, apparel, scholarships, department directories and any other thing we can data mine to satisfy the information needs of the average college student).

I worked with several freelancers and had varying experiences. This time around, I'm looking for someone who can really own the product, both web and mobile development if possible.

I'm currently working with a friend who's an iOS Dev at TripAdvisor on the iOS mvp and he needs some updates made to our web api.

Besides the api updates, we also have UX or other related updates that need to be made in order to make the website more engaging and finally profitable.

Please reach out if you find this interesting, similar websites are bringing in $500,000 to $1.5mm a year and this has even more potential than those.
