About Navin

Seasoned software business exec with strong DC roots and connections looking for a Technologist/Developer/CTO to join me and my partners in building a mobile platform for connecting manufacturers with brands - has very strong consumer resonance and brand-monetization potential.

We have been working on a mobile platform that is clearly differentiated and has broad market appeal. Design and architecture are underway but we have had to rethink our approach to technology-development. The ideal candidate would have broad leeway over approach and technology.

We are looking for a reasonably experienced, but insatiable developer (iOS and back-end) who is intrigued by the opportunity to build something that is much more than "just another app" - a multi-faceted mobile platform that will change consumers and manufacturers interact. Ideally, we are looking for part-time involvement until we pass certain milestones.

You would be joining:

1. Myself - over 20 years in software products, from running 100M businesses to small startups. A technologist by training now mostly focused on business development, early-stage investing and mentoring.

2. CMO - Serial entrepreneur with notable exits to UUNet, also running one of the top affiliate marketing companies.

3. Creative - Boutique design firm with expertise spanning offline to online and a clean, modern aesthetic sense
