A banana that knows Java told me it might be worth my while to post this blurp here. I work for an E-commerce
company (retained employee) and we are completely rewriting our system. Basically, we are looking for a super
guru phenomenon (this position is beyond a title so that really is what they'll be callling this person) to come in
and completely rewrite the system (targeting Java). We have been leading the market since we opened our
doors, have
recieved $32million in funding and have turned down V.C. funding in several cases where we felt they didn't
know enought about the internet. We are small and selective, in fact the CTO is probably one of the best
developers out there. The employees are the type that live to do what they do from the mailroom up.
This opportunity exists as we have learned a considerable bit about the business in the past few years. We are
going to rewrite the entire system as there are currently 2 tiers and we now know the extreme importance of
the Business Objects/Layer/Rules (3rd Tier). The person who comes in will OWN this system entirely. It is not a
hierarchical
org., so it's not that help isn't there, just no red tape or micro management. The development manager will help
you establish hierarchies, but everything else would be up to you.
They will be going public this year, so this position promises to be rewarding and lucrative at the very least.
They also have a dog policy (so many people were bringing their dogs to work that they had to set a schedule).
Please do get back with me at your earliest convenience.
Respectfully,
Julie Neumann

I don't know if Julie will be checking in again. But I asked her the same thing.
Texas.
The pay is into six figures.

Sorry for the delay. Yes, the position is in Austin,Tx. I'm from California and actually think Austin is great (especially for Texas). As for the salary, the base alone is 6 figures. The eqity could make this your last job. I know that people will feel how they want to feel about equity, but in this case it is huge. I suppose the $32 million in funding and their strong sales record could be indicators for the 1999 IPO, but that's just my opinion.

This position is officially closed, yet another extremely similar exists. The basic difference here is that the new position is with a start-up created in '99. The creator of this E-commerce company recently took a software company that he started public. This is an opportunity to set the corporate direction and really get in on the ground floor.

Who, what, when, where, and why? The answers to any of those would be nice.
Thank you,
Michael

This is for a different E-commerce company. The CEO started a software company a few years ago, took it public, sold it and is now going with an idea he's wanted to try for some time now. As for what?, this will be completely new development. It's basically creating an E-commerce system, company, site, etc. When?, as soon as they find the right person. Where?, Austin,Tx. Why?? Past success, a great idea, new concept, etc?
