I'm an entrepreneur by trade, and after spending a couple of weeks on this forum, I've been blown away by the ingenuity, creativity, and general vision of the bitcoin developer community. This is exactly the type of people I'm looking for.

Essentially, I will be forming a start up company that I've been conceptualizing for the past 6 months. I need a competent web developer to help me in my vision. I have the funds to offer market rate wages for qualified programmers, but would also offer an equity stake in exchange for salary concessions, quid pro quo.

The business concept is one of developing market efficiency for 'effectively fungible' services. It will be an online business with semi-sophisticated payment processing, algorithms, and API usage. Details will be forthcoming following NDAs. I'm sure the brilliant minds of this community will have no problem grasping the concept and running wild with it. I'm doubly motivated now as I see the potential to symbiotically grow this venture with the bitcoin economy.

This will most likely become a full-time project. And as an illiterate in the realm of programming, I'll need expert opinions in the time frames for development.

I can answer any questions or concerns in this thread. If this is something that might interest you, please send me a message or resume via PM. If you're uncomfortable sending a resume via PM, then message me and I can provide an email address to forward your resume. As I live in CT, priority will be given to those in the Northeast.

Thanks!

NDA? This implies whatever he's working on is a no-go.

If he can't be confident that he can execute, he sucks.

You might invest in the bitcoin economy by releasing shares which will let you pay a bitcoin developer in bitcoins.

I've executed several before. Have investors lined up now and sometimes they require this of you, but I guess you're just smarter than me. Carry on.

NDA's are for people who believe in Imaginary Property.

I'm just pointing that out because I'd say a large number of the bitcoin community don't.

NDAs are voluntary contracts. Pretty sure the philosophical cornerstone of most of this community is voluntary contracts. I think you're confusing this with IP. But thanks for your snarky misinformed opinion.

I would agree with that statement. There is nothing at all wrong with voluntary contracts imo.

Of course I agree with voluntary contracts. Nevertheless, I don't think it's ever in an individual's interest to sign a NDA.

I have been asked to sign NDAs from time to time. Each time I say "Sorry, I don't sign NDAs" and the response has always been "Oh, OK then, no need to sign."

Google asks applicants to sign an NDA if they attend a job interview. If you don't sign the NDA, you still get the interview. Maybe you don't get shown some of the cool upcoming stuff, but who wants their mind cluttered up with things that they are forbidden from talking about? Signing away a part of your brain is not a smart move.

That is also good advice.

If you always execute faster than the other guys, it doesn't matter what kind of NDA they have with their employees. They're screwed either way.  Wink

There is nothing wrong about keeping a secret until you are ready.  Often if things are made public too early, then everyone gets a bad impression and are hard to convince once it is ready to use.

One off NP-Hard.

For sure. Just because you know about something doesn't mean you are forced to blab about it.

If a company can't depend on its employees' discretion, courtesy, and common sense, without lawyers breathing down everyone's neck, the company has worse problems than unauthorised speech.

I appreciate the honest input. Unfortunately the NDA is outside my control. But I do understand it can be a turn off. I do believe they are rarely enforced in situations such as this, unless its absolutely blatant. Of course execution is everything, and if done right, then everything else is pretty much meaningless. But basically, I'm offering a job to the community. If you're fully employed or believe this is a scam, that's fine, but at the least be constructive in the discussion.

I signed my last NDA over 10 years ago and it's just been handshakes ever since.

In more recent times I've turned down a couple of high-paying jobs because they wanted to 'sign me up' but I told them I'm not their guy.

Voluntary contracts are great, so I can opt out of the bad ones (most of them).
