Stealth "Social Shopping" start-up needs hungry/amazing LAMP developer!

The online shopping/commercial space has not evolved with the rapid change in the search/social utility space.

We are here to create revolutionary change in this space.

Wishy.com is a self-funded startup led by visionary & hyper-talented executives and guided/advised by experienced CEO's in the online advertising, click-fraud, Hollywood studio and high-tech spaces. Powerful Hollywood music agency may soon be Board Member as well, at the execution of our strategic partnership (this is a HUGE Gen X&Y demographic play)

We are looking for passionate, dedicated and brilliant developer(s) to join the founding executive team. This is an incredible opportunity for the right entrepreneurial & strategic-minded developer/CTO type to join ground-floor, "pre-money". (Meaning your equity stake will be early enough to be epotentially )

As part of the core engineering team you'll be able to work closely with the founders in a fast paced challenging environment to help shape the technology landscape and culture of the core product. If you enjoy working on high volume platforms, writing clean code, love to follow standards, hate spaghetti code, want to learn about how a startup is built from the ground floor than we want to talk to you!

We are looking for talent, drive, vision and character. We embody the work hard, play hard mantra and hold fast to our corporate value to "be great people. do great things." If this sounds like you....please contact us!

We're mainly a MOD PERL/PHP/Flex shop, but went down the .NET road in the beginning....so if you're sworn to that platform, sell us hard!

all resumes to: jared@wishy.com AND deano@wishy.com and please tell us what your three favorite books are.
