More New Company Rumors

(for Termite and SUAR) There's a rumor that we have a lava lounge and a beer fridge ...

I am unable to confirm those two pieces of information at this time.

And another position we're looking for:
Video And Music Production but we were flooded with a bunch of good resumes so we took it off line.

We will have health benefits (Jill), pizza on Fridays, unlimited cafeinne, 90 minute lunches for running and there's a s-load of stock options for employees.  The only real stress-creating item is that we need to release the product in August 2011!  The blurb from all of our job announcements follows:

If you've ever wanted to join a startup that's about to launch the next big thing (a killer geo-social app) this is your chance. You won't find anything about us online until we release. But what we can tell you is that our team has launched world-class apps in the past, some of which you probably use every day. We're located in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district (party central) and close to everything including transit. If you luck out and get to work here you'll earn serious bragging rights. Expect to work your ass off and love every minute of it. The rest is up to you.

I am thinking we will only be hiring long-distance runners or emergency-room triage nurses.  The blurb was written by my CEO.  So far we're getting a lot of people who can't read the job posting - but we need some time for this to get going.  The interviewees we have seen have been very curious people.  That's actually an attribute we want in all of our employees, plus a good dose of scepticism, passion and a whole lotta courage.  Oh, and did I mention technical skill, and team abilities?

For those who asked what I will be wearing under my kilt (Rose and MissZippy) - my Polish pride, of course!  (i.e. a pair of Calvin Klein boxers.)

Some actuall running news: my record was updated with my 5th race here.  Is there a national US site or a national Canadian site that shows major running accomplishments for average runners in NA?  Because I doubt if I run a race in the States it's going to get put on my running record here in Canada.

We have a lava lamp in our living room :-) It is simply mesmerizing!

Jill said...

Ok, I'm hired!!
I'm gonna have to telecommute though - Canada is way too cold for this chick - so I hope you're working on an app to get pizza to Colorado on Fridays.

Sounds intriguing. Now if only you needed a really good Jack of all trades Network guy that could commute from Oregon.

Teamarcia said...

Oh so THIS is the job Jill had so much anxiety about.

If these rumors are confirmed I will want a guided tour!

Adrienne said...

I'll take the s-load of stock options, I've already got two lava lamps.

Barefoot Neil Z said...

I am all of those things.

That's a cool (& well-written) add, Andrew. But, I'm with Jill, though--couldn't imagine moving somewhere that's colder than where I am now!
Seems like the app world and social connectivity are expanding exponentially. It's mind-boggling as well as a bit frightening to think about what our communication/technology world will be like in as little as 10 yrs from now.

Cute fridge. =D

Hi Andrew! Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but www.athlinks.com might be it. ?

Irene said...

Yep, Athlinks.com, like Small Town Runner said.

Oooooh... A lava lamp!

Chris K said...

I don't know about that site. The new company sounds intriguing. Are you also looking for passive aggressive Toga wearing men? If so, I'm a shoe-in.
