Some of you may remember when my company, crowdSPRING (one of the largest
Python-based sites online), hosted ChiPy a few years back at our space in
the West Loop. It was then, without doubt (by fiat and according to Brian
Ray), the best meeting ever.

My lead engineer at crowdSPRING (Adriano Marques) and I just launched a new

http://www.startupfoundry.com/ -  we have a pretty awesome and very unique
opportunity for you.

team (after looking at hundreds of models). We'll research, develop and

This isn't your normal 9 to 5 job. We will mentor members of the team to
become the future CEOs and CTO's of the companies we build.

I won't kid you - we're looking for incredibly smart, extraordinarily
interesting people. When we're not working, we're doing century bike rides,
building balloons that travel to space, and experimenting with 3D printing.

Want to build something amazing with us?
