About Derek

I'm looking for developers who have experience in mainly ruby on rails and javascript. He/She should have interest in building a startup (from scratch) and genuinely believe in delivering great work. Most important, the partner should have passion in building something that he/she is proud of and maintain his/her own perspective when it comes to a decision call during product development.

Previously, my team and I built spacecomby.com to help freelancers look for temporary desk, much like airbnb for office spaces. The site is simply a POC / prototype but rest assure that all the functions and features are working well. So that means I can build prototype in a quick and lean way. Right now, I'm looking for partners / developers who are interested in bringing this idea forward. I'm not deeply technical but I'll be able to tell if someone is up for a technical - hence my role as a product manager.

So if you think you are someone who fits the description, please drop me a message. Otherwise, you may also ping me at derek [at] derekchia [dot] com if you think my description is too vague or badly written. ;)
