Golang / Go Job: Looking for co-founder developers on a new start-up project

Looking for co-founder developers on a new start-up project at None yet

Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪   (Posted Dec 2 2015)

Job position
Permanent / Freelance - Remote work possible

Job description
I'm an ops guy that can get hands dirty and write some code if needed, mostly building small tools to automate things in and around AWS, usually in Ruby and/or Python.

A few months ago I got an idea for one such tool, this time a bit bigger and more complex than the others I wrote before, and I started to implement it in my spare time.

I decided to do it in golang just to learn the language, but then I saw it also had some nice benefits for what I'm trying to build. But since I still have a full-time job and a wife that tries to make me also have a life :-), I didn't have much time to invest in development so I soon got stuck. I dropped it for a few months, then I kind of found this page full of golang talent, and I thought I could give it a shot.

So as I said, I started to write something in golang, then ended up implementing bits and pieces in python and a bit of javascript, just because those are currently supported by AWS Lambda, where I plan to run this thing.

Since it's nowhere near an MVP, nor something that makes much sense to open source at this point because it's kind of just a pile of code that doesn't do too much yet, I would need some help to get it off the ground, and I guess I also need to have some folks to help motivate me to work on it on a more regular basis.

I'm looking for a few people more experienced than me at coding and also nice to work with (no more than 4, so we can still fit my bitbucket free plan :-), willing to contribute to this in their spare time.

As you might have realized by now, I don't have any cash to hand over, but in case we can pull it off, it might later become a for-profit company and we can split the shares or so. Maybe it will become the next unicorn and we all get billionaires, you never know :-)

If it for some reason we fail, we can open source it so that anyone can benefit from this, and at least we would have some fun doing it and learn some new things... let's just try and see how it goes.

Skills & requirements
- great at golang

- at least one of us will need to know a few things about web frontend stuff, including design, where I really have no clue, since we'll need a website at some point.

- knowledge of the AWS technology stack(especially EC2, DynamoDB, S3, Lambda, API Gateway, etc.), the golang AWS SDK is a big plus

- a bit of Python and some node.js is also a plus

I'm from Berlin, but mostly I plan doing remote work for this. If we can meet in person or have similar timezones would be a big plus

Instructions how to apply
A CV would be nice, but I would be perfectly fine just to get to see some stuff on your github profile that shows some relevant experience with what we need.

Just send it over at majeru AT gmail and let's talk.

Please use GOLANG in the subject so I can filter the emails.
