IOS & Android Developer with Web Design Capabilities InternshipBookmark This
DescriptionThis is an opportunity for a bright individual(s) who feels they are capable of capturing the mass markets attention & capable of coming up with out of the box ideas!! We are looking for someone that is able or willing to really take our existing website foundation and create a mobile presence that capitalizes on the social media movement..you will be rewarded with equity for your efforts.
Fringles, LLC is an innovative and exciting online dating/social media website looking for someone who embodies those same characteristics. We are looking for a smart, motivated, and technology savvy intern to help out with a variety of aspects of the company but the main concentration is to build the mobile application from start to finish. With the growing market interest of Facebook & Google seeing the incredible value in the mass numbers of people engaging in online dating they have now become players in the space as well......we want to capitalize on such interest in many ways but this would be one example:
A social dating app built on top of Facebook: it's an extremely social experience. It encourages users to ask friends to hook them up with their friends, rather than awkwardly asking the third degree person directly. Second, people in relationships can use Fringles by playing matchmaker. Third, it's a very data-driven service. It connects to Netflix, Amazon and other APIs to make smart suggestions about what two people have in common. For example, it can show that you both rented the same movie last month, or that you like the same music.
Another example we like in the space for its ease of navigation is : http://www.letsdateapp.com/
We seek someone who can produce clean, uncluttered code that is rock solid . And since no one is perfect, you should have the ability to troubleshoot and hunt down bugs. And for our more adventurous clients, we want someone who has the creativity to take advantage of emerging technology to produce engaging, boundary-pushing web and mobile experiences. Proven App Development a plus but not required.
This is an INTERN position for either school credit or resume boosting credentials from a group of high experienced and successful management team. You will be working off site/remotely and as mentioned above will receive a sizable portion of equity in the company. Once the applications are completed we will be speaking with various VC's whom we have a personal relationship with to get series A funding in order to propel our marketing and tech efforts. If we receive our goal of 1M of funding you will receive the first 80k as an annual salary and be named the companies CTO. This is an incredible opportunity for someone with the desired skills we seek.
