Senior PHP Developer for CTO/Lead Dev at Bitcoin Marketplace Forums at

Job Description:

Unforseeable circumstances have left this great, funded startup without a CTO and lead developer. If you're in to the idea of building a highly advanced forum to support a huge, global community around trading with emerging and alternative currencies, this is the job for you.

We're looking for someone who can offer a minimum of 40 hours per week. Compensation is negotiable $50/hr. Ideally, we'd find someone who is willing to take a bit less of a salary who'd be interested in equity. Office in San Francisco, telecommute possible.

Key responsibliites are:
Maintain and develop further our forum merger/migration software, which allows Ogrr to gobble up smaller forums that we acquire.

Continually upgrade the forum's features:
Add more advanced features to the forum's trade system, user profiles, ratings system, escrow system. Better automation of user tracking. More granular moderator permissions and notification options.

Create Reddit-like self-serv ad system and per-forum css.

Implement internal instant messaging and live chat forum systems, possibly IRC or XMPP/Jabber-based.

Maintain a high level of security.

There are about 100 outstanding tickets for great features that have been suggested. There's a lot of interesting work to be done.

Skills & Requirement:

We've got a highly experienced team with prior successful startups under our belt. We're small but well-funded and ready to grow.
