I recently moved to Toronto from San Francisco, having worked in the startup space for the past 8 years. I was an early employee of a digital ad tech startup called Adify, that was successfully acquired by the cable giant Cox Enterprises ($300MM in 2008). Subsequently, a bunch of ex-Adify colleagues and I spun out of Cox to found Dynamic Signal, a B2B software startup in the social media space ($32MM in funding; www.dynamicsignal.com ). I started my stint in the US with grad school in Eng. at Stanford. I am now working on my third startup, in the mobile messaging space. I have a working prototype and good initial indications of product-market fit. I am also starting fundraising efforts in Canada and also Silicon Valley, and am looking to expand the team to bring on a smart and driven technical hire - this role will have significant responsibility and chance at significant equity. The person can be seen as the CTO, responsible for all technical aspects of app development (iOS initially, Android later). Prior experience building mobile apps / games is very helpful but not absolutely necessary. Based on their previous background, there can certainly be a place. Please feel free to reach out - I'd love to chat!
