Lead Engineer needed on Social Network for Drinkers
January 15, 2013 12:51 PM

Shwinkers, the private social network for drinkers, is finalizing its native iOS app and needs a special shwinker to finish the job.

We need a killer developer to lead the team and bring this app to market. Our app uses the latest trends in geo-fencing, social networking and smart design with the goal of being the indispensable app for all social drinkers ... or Shwinkers (it's a global drinking club with a digital twist).

We are releasing the iOS application first and the ideal candidate is capable of building both the front-end and back end by themself. All the graphical assets are designed and the first version exists, but is incomplete.

Our lead shwink-developer will be hands on and passionate about making a beautiful and fast application that delivers a killer user experience. It is a technical founder position and compensation is equity.

The ideal candidate has:

-2+ years working with Ruby on Rails (ROR)

-Experience working with RESTful JSON APIs.

-Familiarity or desire to work with MongoDB (our backend uses this now and we want to keep it)

-Familiarity with objective C

-Existing Apps in the Apple AppStore.

It's a plus if you have:

-Android mobile development experience

For sure we prefer candidates right now that are stronger on the backend services (server, API and Mongo) than the front end client development - but we are open to talk to candidates that are looking to improve their backend skills as well.

If you're interested we can give you access to our GitHub repo and you can look for yourselves what we're building.

For more information please contact patrick@Shwinkers.com.

Thanks!

Shwinkers, Inc.
