Hey folks

We're building our London team, which will consist of 4-5 developers in the
next few weeks. However, being based in Silicon Valley at the moment, I am
struggling to find where suitable candidates available now/soon hang out.

I'll be flying in this weekend, so would appreciate it if anyone on the
list can suggest anyone appropriate that I should speak with?

*Here's a quick overview:*

4 of us started the company in London and moved to San Francisco 1 year ago
for the AngelPad incubator (0.5% admission rate) and subsequently raised
one of the largest seed funding rounds in recent history, our investors
include Google's chairman (Eric Schmidt) and 30 others of a similar

They're flooding us with introductions to companies they're invested in as
potential clients (Skype, Spotify, Zynga, Pinterest, Square, Palantir etc),
now we just need help building out more of the product in addition to a
great engineering culture.

We have the resources of a much larger company and an unfair advantage that
most never get access to, with the pace and openness to change of a
startup. We're still only 10 strong and on the cusp of some very aggressive
growth, so anyone joining now will shape how big business we become. We're
already making money and looking at raising our Series B at the end of this
year. Exciting things ahead!


   - Mid-Senior developers looking for perm / contract-to-hire in London
   - Available immediately or in the next few weeks
   - Strong with Python 2.x
   - Ideally also strong with Flask, Django is okay too
   - Google App Engine (NoSQL)
   - Strong experience building rich web applications

We're also looking for frontend skill set, which ideally would sit with the
backend guys:

   - Backbone.JS, CoffeeScript

Engineers get the best kit (we can afford ;)) and we're big on continuous
integration + automation.

All the best,

Roger Toor
