About Jules

I need 2 technical cofounders to work with me in building the next generation of mobile apps. Specifically, I'm looking for Android and iOS devs.

My company is structured similar to a co-op whereby each employee shares in the profit generated by the project they work on. Initially you will be working for equity - evenly shared amongst the 3 founders of each project.

The current project is a simple social media app that focuses on security and privacy. We are guaranteeing that there will be no ads and that we will not sell users' data to the highest bidder.
I think the time is right and people will pay to protect their online reputation. I want to start with Android and if we get some traction we can port it to iOS.

Validation for the idea comes from months of interacting with thousands of real people across the US and elsewhere who have expressed a profound interest in finding a secure, ad-free alternative to Facebook. We will run it as SAAS at $0.99 per month, and overwhelmingly, the reaction that I've recorded is that they are more than willing to take the plunge.

My side of the responsibilities include design, planning, marketing, PR, legal, financial and growth. Your responsibilities will include development, testing, deployment, debugging, support(in the beginning) and ongoing features enhancement.

I'm in the beginning stages of the initial design, planning is complete, and it shouldn't take more than a couple of days before I have a framework laid out from which we can launch an MVP. The timing of that launch will depend, of course, on you.

This is obviously not for everybody and I'm not going to patronize you with a sales pitch. It'll be a challenge but I think if we build a quality product, we will be able to exploit this gap in the market and solve a problem that the current available applications will never be able to.

If you're interested, drop me a line, tell me what you've done and what you think you can do. I'll tell you more about who I am, what my vision is and how we will go about making the world a slightly better place to live.

Looking forward to your replies.

Thank you.
