uMARK.IT (http://umark.it) is looking for a Chief Technology Officer to join the team as a co-founder. We’re tackling some of the planet’s largest development problems, and we need your skills.
Bookkeeping can be intimidating and time consuming while most solutions require access to desktop computing. As a result, most of the 400 million entrepreneurs in the developing world are forced to track their finances by hand. Until now!
uMARK.IT empowers entrepreneurs in the developing world with mobile accounting tools. Our flagship product delivers an affordable, accessible bookkeeping solution by using SMS text messages to collect and disseminate data. Unlike other solutions, uMARK.IT is usable by 79% of those 400 million entrepreneurs in the developing world.
With better data, entrepreneurs can make better decisions to help their business grow, and lenders can make better loans to help close the $2 trillion credit gap experienced by micro and small businesses in the developing world.
You want to build solutions that ease pain on a personal level yet can scale globally. Usability is the objective of your design. “Value > Pain” produces a head nod. You have enthusiasm for engaging with users in a physical environment to see how a product/service is actually used. You’re comfortable with modern web development tools (we’re using Ruby on Rails). Feature phones are not dumb phones to you.
Initial compensation will be equity. If you’re interested, give us a shout with your resume or portfolio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
