About Thomas

Hi,

I'm looking for an application developer who is interested in partnering (/cofounding) on the development of a mobile app. To be clear, this is an unpaid venture until the time we're able to monetize a product, and the first step would be building a MVP. I have a few concepts that I believe are viable and I'm open to ideas, but I'd prefer it if there was consensus/mutual-excitement before moving forward on any project. I've built a number of prototypes using a tool called Proto.io, and really enjoy diving into the design side of things.

I'm a developer by training (comp sci and math degrees), but do not have real world development experience. I've been working in the hardware/infrastructure space for the past 10 years and can provide value around deployment/operations, but will not be developing myself. I would be focused on product development, user-interface design, finding new talent and basic business operations.

I think it's worth noting that, with some hand-holding, I'd be happy to get my hands dirty and start programming again, but it's definitely not my strong suite, which is why I'm looking for an experienced developer to lead that aspect of the project.
