Tech Co-Founder / System Admin / Techie Generalist for new Social Shopping Marketpl

at VeloSocial in Woking

I have recently launched an affiliate social shopping marketplace for the cycling industry. The business objective is to tap into the growing worldwide popularity in cycling. The concept combines both social features with a shopping marketplace. The goal is to ultimately build a community of registered users who share content and purchase products via our growing list of retailers.

In short, users can join online social groups for their type of riding (i.e. MTB, Road, Downhill, BMX, Fixies etc) and share inspiring content such as videos, pictures, articles etc. Addition to the social and user generated content, the plan is to build the largest shopping marketplace available online where users can compare prices, create shopping lists and buy the latests products at the best price online.

The role:

I have successfully launched a beta version (using Wordpress) and starting to get good traction/interest on social channels and now looking to add a co-founder who can bring some much needed technical skills to the business to help develop the concept and take it to a level whereby we secure funding or a strategical investor. My background is commercial/online marketing and have previously run a successful online shopping engine. I need a good all round tech person to compliment my business skills!

This is not currently a full-time position and would suit someone who may have an existing business or be employed, but has the capacity/desire to work on a new venture with no investment or risk. As this is early stage, I envisage the initial requirement would be 5-10 hours per week non-paid in return for a share in the business.
An interest in cycling would be an added plus!

If you're interested in this opportunity, please get in touch outlining your experience, professional background. Looking forward to hearing from you.
