Startup Seeking ROR mentor/partner

We are a small team of three individuals based in South East Asia
(Indonesia/Singapore), developing a unique Asian focused multi-
language web application using what we believe to be a unique and
viable business model. Whilst two of us have extensive programming
experience we are new to Ruby on Rails, and have approximately 12
months of experience developing in ROR. To date our efforts, have
been self funded and we are hoping to launch a beta application in the
next several months. At that time, we plan to refine our application’s
functionality based on feedback from users and will be exploring
capital raising from external investors.

In developing our application, our goal has been to implement best
rails practices. We recently upgraded our code base to Rails 3, and
use rspec and cucumber to test and verify functionality.

Given the difficulty of finding ROR programmers and experts in Asia,
and given our strategy of ensuring we develop our application using
best rails practices, we are currently seeking a remote or Asian based
mentor to join our team. Ideally, this person should be a seasoned
rails professional with extensive development experience.

We would hope that this individual could spend several hours each week
reviewing our code and providing guidance remotely to us with respect
to ROR and the development of our application. As we are self funded
capital is limited but we would be able to provide some compensation
for the time spent and/or an equity interest in the application.

If you are interested please reply privately to me with your CV and we
can discuss further.
