DescriptionGreetings from THE LATEST (thelatest.com).
Heard the latest?
We are a soon-to-launch website called "THE LATEST." We have an international team that is continually growing.
As part of our offering, we will produce webisodes in which we discuss "the latest" in news, sports, gadgets, gossip, wine, fly fishing, comedy, viral videos, the weather, politics, music -- anything at all.
Also, as a startup, we are fairly unstructured, “making this up as we go along.” We won't be able to tell you "how to do it”; after all, we've never done this, either. There isn’t a history of “how we do things.” We'll give you the challenge, and then YOU will have to figure out how to do it. This intimidates some; others love the thrill of freedom and adventure.
This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a completely unique internet start-up.
Sweat equity shares will be an important component to how we compensate people, especially once we launch. We are all operating on faith that we really will launch and that company shares will be worth something someday. We need help designing this and other HR programs, then we need to oversee them.
PLEASE NOTE: This idea is still in the early stages and we are pre-launch, pre-funding, pre-just about everything. We do have a demo site and we also have programmers programming. We hope to launch by Summer 2015.
