Looking for help / partner in new website venture idea

Posted by airwalker08 on February 28, 2012 at 6:36 AM PST

Do you live in the Seattle area? Are you interested in getting in on the ground floor of a great new website idea (and maybe getting rich)? If you answered yes to both of those questions, please read till the end...

Have you ever heard (or thought) this before: "I have this great idea for a website that is gonna make me rich!"? It may sound cliche, but that is my claim and, in my case, I believe it to be true and I intend to fo. I have an incredible idea for a website that is just dying to become the next big internet monster. I'm not going to divulge the idea here, of course, but I will say that the idea is completely legal and moral (no porn, gambling, scams or any of that crap). I'm looking for other developers who are interested in partnering in on my website venture. I am currently in the process of getting all of the legal aspects of a startup in order. I do intend to maintain ownership of the IP, so there are some obvious precautions that I intend to put in place first. I hope to get this off of the ground without capital investors, which means I can't offer a paycheck. What I will offer, however, can be something much better; shares of the business-to-be and (if all goes well) a very early retirement. I am currently only looking for developers located in Seattle because I intend to meet anybody interested in person first.

I'm looking for developers with experience in as many of the technologies listed in the following stack:

  • JSF2
  • PostgreSQL
  • MongoDB
  • Tomcat
  • css / JavaScript / jQuery
  • Linux

If all goes well, the site will be high traffic (on pace with Amazon or eBay, maybe even facebook someday) and will host many gigs worth of data.

I know this all sounds insanely ambitious, but I assure you that I am not some dilusional quack. This is a great idea and the sooner we can get this site online, the better our chances of dominating what will be an entirely (well, mostly) new online market.

About me:

My name is Darrin Huit, I am a software engineer living in Seattle, WA. I've spent most of my career working with Microsoft technologies but recently dove head-first into Java, though I have a LOT to learn still.

Please contact me if you're interested!

Hi Airwalker,

Thank you for sharing your ambitions. Also as an ambitious entrepreneur, I have had business creative plans since writing my first manuscript as a youth, of which I elaborated and submitted to a manuscript writing contest as an adult. Also as an adult, I wanted to become a fashion designer / store owner and had dreams of writing successful software applications. Recently, I have completed a Bachelors degree program in Computer an Information Science where I completed a few programming courses, including "Advanced programming in Java", (Java EE). My strongest skills are organization, documentation, and time management. However, I do not live in your required location, but if you have a need for Model-View-Controller, MVC, Architecture 2 design and Beginner's HTML, SQL, or XML skills, please consider contacting me to discuss further.
