Background

About Jakob

I am the co-founder of WorldBrain (GoWorldBrain.com) a start-up that makes it easy for teachers to take school trips. Our team has worked in the school travel space for 4 years and we have helped thousands of teachers take school trips. We saw a big problem with a simple solution and went after it. We just went through Betaspring in Providence and we will be launching the third iteration of our product in March.

We are looking for a team member that we can spend time with (this is really the most important criteria). Our system is RoR with a healthy dose of JS, among others. We want a hacker with experience building products that scale who can also manage a team of outside devs. An eye for UX/UI design would help.

We have fun at work. Nerf warfare skills are a must as well as a thick skin. We throw around a lot of ideas, most of which are horrible, and we speak our minds. We love what we do, can't imagine doing anything else, and want to work with someone who feels the same way. Hit me up to learn more.
