About Sam

My professional background is in Law and Investment Banking. Over the last 5 years, I have been working in business development for social enterprises around the Pacific and South East Asia. My passion is to build business models which impact the world in a positive way. I am especially interested in creative models of social and environmental change. Work is important to me but so is lifestyle. I love to travel, ski, surf and party, when the occasion calls for it :)

I have built a product (with a production team in Singapore) and have 50 celebrity users who have supported the idea. I would now like to join with a like-minded founder who can take care of all technical aspects of the product. We aim to raise a seed round by end 2015.

Requirements: Full-Stack/Rails Developer

Desired Commitment: Hourly (20 hours per week)

Required Skills:
Frameworks: Ruby on Rails, jQuery
Languages: Ruby, JavaScript
Other: Heroku, Amazon S3

I have a Rails website that is complete and ready to launch. I am seeking a co-founder/developer who can fix the final remaining issues preventing us from launching, and who will be able to commit to the project well into the post-launch phase. Current outstanding issues have been thoroughly documented, and many solutions have been identified.

This is a straightforward Rails application that will be easy for an experienced Rails developer to take over. Front-end experience (JavaScript, jQuery) is also necessary.
