About Corey

Seeking a lead mobile developer who is talented/driven to build something special in the mobile app photo-sharing/group-social space.

You’ll be a critical team member of GrouVe, a Wisconsin-based “P.O.P.-tech” start-up, working on a new iPhone and Android app that will change the way groups take, access, and share photos (with your help, it’ll be in the app store before we know it). This isn’t an average position where you might be limited to one small piece of the company’s technology, but one where you’ll have influence over the whole Goddamn mobile development process, from design to production. Pretty f&%#ing cool, huh? Plus, this position could lead to becoming Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and even eligible for an equity stake in the organization.

Who you are: (and damn, we're excited to meet you):
 A full-stack developer who views 1s and 0s as the gateway to a more connected world
 You want to work on challenging problems with smart people; a little crazy to work with us, and a lot of passion about what we’re working on
 You’re someone who could get positions at most tech companies, but you’re looking for the perfect role that has great leadership, a roster of top talent (to come in-time...remember, this is a start-up), game-changing product vision, and a work hard/play hard company culture
 A track record of projects completed on time – you’re a flawless executor and you keep your code cleaner than your room.
 Self-starter who enjoys taking projects from inception to completion
 You can swim in the snow, and contribute at least 2 good songs to our team playlist
