Wanted: Skilled ROR programmer/co-founder partner(s) for social venture startup

taking the web 2.0 movement from relationship creation (social networking) to the next natural step--relationship maintenance, growth, and enrichment, specifically for the 60M couples in USA and Europe who are unhappy with their relationships and are wishing to save and ensure, or otherwise revitalize their relationships. The opportunity: to pioneer this new movment (web 3.0? ) with an application that could do wonders to prevent affairs and divorces, and revitalize relationships, and thereby prevent mountains of suffering for hundreds of thousands of marriages and committed relationships every year.

Founder is longtime committed social/environmental activist and wants his own net revenues to go to prevent war, genocide, and stop global warming, bring democracy to America, and happy, in addition to compensation (below) to 1) commit $20k from net revenues to fund your own project if hugely beneficial to society or the planet; and 2) provide equity ownership if we go the for profit route. Rest of our team is dedicated to getting our funding (see below).

We developed an earlier beta tested prototype in asp, that got rave reviews, led to some great things, but was not sufficiently sticky, then blew 5 mo with a poorly supervised effort using an Indian coder in php. So hopefully this will finally be doing things the right way.

HOURS Can be shortterm: 3-4 weeks, and then half time during the beta test, and could turn into fulltime position once funding arrives. Estimated time to produce beta: 150 hrs

GOAL: We need to produce a beta testable app for a large health insurance company asap (they are not funding us, but probably would if satisfied with the beta).

We are also open to making parts of this app free to the public and the OPEN SOURCE community

For full job description: Email me, gary krane at DavidvGoliath@gmail.com


1) Core Requirements: Generation and validation of roughly 14 forms, with permissions ranging from the results being single user accessible to accessible to both members of a linked up party (husband and wife)

2) Some features require 2 parties be logged in at once to read/write Private data sharing specific only between 2 linked up parties Some graphs based on simple analysis of the forms (to reproduce existing functionality; it mostly is simply a 1-1 relationship between certain answers and certain graph values ... less than 10 data points)

COMPENSATION: We are not yet funded, and have been using my savings for past two years. So I prefer a partner who will work fulltime plus on equity basis; but alternatively I can spend at least another $2000 if necessary , plus large backend, and optimistic about getting funded soon. (Have crackerjack fundriasing team--two guys at google, and one former high up at Oracle. Plus: and if you continue to stay on past first betatest, giviing you first right of refusal for ongoing VP of engineering or CTO position.

If you get the beta done and working correctly, we are also willing to make deal to fund your own future programming project if has strong social/environmental value for up to $20k from profits of our startup.

NOTE: We have a top flite team (two employees at Google and one former high up at Oracle) now looking for $200-600k angel funding.

We were also a finalist in the UC Berkeley Business Plan competition.

ADDITIONAL Requirements: Able to start immediately and passion to be working on something that has potential for preventing lots of suffering and helping in other critical areas too (preventing genocide,war, stopping global warming), since all of founder's own profits will go to these causes.
