Initially this project's full scope is confidential and highly strategic. The business model and intended design touches on some very forward thinking aspects of social media, communication, and electronic exchange. This project is initially focused on n-tier design and a solid backbone built on SQL Server 2008 R2. This is not just another "Social App". In fact, this project touches on social media only as a means (not the ends of the project). Initial structure and design considers all aspects of n-tier architecture with a firm focus on scalability and response time.
Creativity and the ability to problem solve when designing is a must. We will be touching on some aspects of design that are beyond linear programming. Inter-relation between objects and data will be used.
If you are a developer looking to test their skills and share in the construction of a truly revolutionary idea this may be the project for you. Complexity and creative thinking will be a large part of solving problems as the site grows. The up side - the CEO of this start-up has both business and technology experience and the general architecture is already mapped out. Growth may dictate change and your expertise may add to creating a truly scalable and user friendly product that is focused on driving real value in a global information society.
Skills Needed: ASP.Net 4.0, SQL 2008 R2, WCF, HTML 4.0+, Visual Studio 2010, n-Teir Design, Stored Procedures, C# 4.0. Understanding of Unmanaged memory and C++ is a benefit. Leveraging such skills to supplement any "off heap" caching needs may be considered at some point in time.
The right person will be viewed more as a potential partner than just an hourly employee. Negotiation on needs are possible. I am looking more for the caliber of person than raw skill set. Drive and creativity are marked as primary aspects as this project (once deployed) is expected to grow fast and generate a substantial revenue stream.
