I'm starting a new internet enterprise, and I'm looking for
someone to act as a remote "Chief Technical Officer."
The winning candidate will be an expert (and I mean EXPERT) in
1. Commitment to doing excellent, thorough and creative work.
2. Very good communication skills in English, with the ability to implement the wishes of someone who doesn't know all the right computer terminology.
3. Accessibility. I need to be able to email and/or instant message you whenever I need to... and expect a quick answer during the day. (~10am to ~8pm ET).
4. The ability to think "outside the box" and suggest creative solutions and better ways of doing things than the ideas that I came up with myself.
I expect to make some contact with you 3-4 times a week on various issues, like editing a file on a webserver, setting up an email account, answering questions from my customer service rep, and just generally being available to answer technical questions and give advice whenever needed.
I could just hire a guy, and I could hire people a-la-carte as needed on RentACoder, but at this point, I'd prefer to have someone "on retainer". So I'm looking for not only an all-around good coder-type, but somebody who is willing to make themselves available on an ongoing basis.
I've been on RAC long enough to know that ANYBODY can sound really good in the short term, so I'm only interested in
giving this a try for one month before extending it for a longer
Therefore, please bid on one month of your time, 3-4 times a week. If I like what you have to say, I'll give you a try.
An agreement as to price.
