Looking Yii web programmers within the Bay Looking to build a team of hungry, dedicated founders
Posted 22 March 2011 - 06:45 PM
My company involves recommendations, mobile applications, aspects of social networking, etc. More detail would require an NDA, but I am looking for Bay Area-located candidates (in California for the international set) who I can refer to in building up a small, core team of Yii-based developers for the future, as I would love to bring the same devoted, small, but eager participation I see in these forums to my startup. Please email me at my email for future correspondence
Thank you, and thank you Yii for such an amazing product

Networking around the bay has exposed me to the hot and competitive market for talent out there, and all these start ups jostling for talent, trying to get funded.
I am looking to start a social-based recommendation site, and I am currently working on the prototype myself due to a so-so experience with a contractor, coupled with the need for boot-strapped funds to hire another person. Before you click away, consider that my prototype is about a month or so away from completion, and that prototype will be used to shop around for funds from angels in the area.
Having another developer, especially versed in Yii, would speed up the implementation, and thus the funding. I believe that this is a fun, game-like concept that will have people interact more readily than with other such sites out there, and this would be a chance for any local developer to be a part of a start up. I have a background in CS (hence my coding work on the prototype), and I recently completed my MBA from Thunderbird school of Global Management in Arizona.
I want to create a start up: I feel more alive when I consider it, and the senses are definitely brighter when I am creating something new. With start ups out there with dated concepts being funded, it's about time this company got it's due.
