About anupamjo

I have been working on an idea in the local, mobile, social space and have built a fairly reasonable prototype. I have a strong technical background and am looking for a talented technical cofounder to join me in taking this forward. Someone with PM or lead engineer positions is preferred, but not necessary if you think you have the drive and motivation to succeed. The work items I am currently engaged in are typical of most freemium products today - Android app, iOS app and font end and back end web platform. I plan to continue managing the Android app and portion of the web platforms but given the work load, I will need you to take responsibility of iOS and back end stuff. I fully expect that both of us write code till we get funding and co-develop the business plan and strategy - at least until we are able to secure funding. You will have opportunity to wear multiple other hats between business, marketing, sales.

The most important thing I am looking for in a cofounder is passion, motivation and dedication. Nobody is perfect but if our personalities match and we develop mutual respect for each other I think we can build something awesome. I believe in my idea and know there are critical assumptions and challenges in the process, but that is how most startups are in the beginning.

I would like the cofounder to be from the SF bay area especially during the early critical stage of the project. If you think there could be a good match then please feel free to contact me and we can discuss further.
