I don’t know why but in the last couple of days a number of people I know are suddenly looking to hire developer talent in and around New York.
Each of the companies/people are doing very exciting things in their own areas of interest…and so I figured I would do a quick post about each.
First up is of course Gilt.com which I mentioned yesterday…in case you don’t already know, Gilt.com is a member’s only e-commerce site for fashion…they are constantly running specials, sales, and deep discounts on top designer items.
Since I just mentioned Gilt yesterday I won’t say too much more about them, but rumor has it they are looking for a ton of different skill sets right now…so you should def. check them out.
Next up is path101.com which I’ve also talked about from time to time around here…what path101.com is doing is basically helping people figure out what they want to do with their lives (what career they should focus on based on their past experiences and what similar people are doing)…they’ve got all kinds of great ideas and plans lined up and they only recently launched so it’s still very early stages.
If you’re a Python developer and looking to get in on the ground floor of a (nearly) can’t miss start-up, you gotta check Path 101 out!
Finally, Kiril tweeted out that he’s looking for a front-end developer right now too…I actually only know him via Twitter and his awesome blog (http://nonfound.blogspot.com) but from that I know he’s working on a really great sports-related iPhone app. (and it’s very much along the lines of my old coachwizard.com idea I never got around to doing - only better of course).
I’m not sure the specifics of the project that he’s looking for a developer for yet…but it sounds like he’s pretty open to how it’s done (he’s asking for anyone who is super sharp in Python/Ruby/Php, etc.)…and if I had any free time at all, I would be first in line for this opp.
All three of those are real opportunities that could turn into really amazing things for the right person…if nothing else, they should all be VERY interesting and full of great challenges and even better people.
If you’ve got the time and the skills…you gotta check them out!
