Shhhh...Writers & Marketers Wanted For Founding Team Of A Secret Project

Shhhh...Writers & Marketers Wanted For Founding Team Of A Secret Project
You just knew that I couldn't watch all the excitement in the Web world without doing something to get in on the action.While I'm now a boring enterprise software guy, I haven't forgotten my Internet roots, and am advising and working with a number of entrepreneurs in this space.

One of these projects is coming to fruition, and we're offering some exciting opportunities for good writers and marketers.

Here's what we're looking for:




A team of experienced entrepreneurs from Stanford and Harvard Business School is recruiting aggressive, entrepreneurial writers and marketers for a new venture.

We have created a phenomenal business idea, built all the infrastructure and technology necessary to execute on this idea, and are now looking for people to join the founding team and execute.

We are looking for people with good writing skills, a diverse set of interests, and the ability to kick ass.

Notice that we didn't say that we're looking for people with particular degrees or work experience. We don't believe that age or background is the best measure of a person. Some of us graduated high school at age 15, or started our first company before we could drive.

In fact, we would prefer to select at least some people who are currently in high school or college to become a part of this founding team (though we are also eager to recruit people with a seasoned perspective).

This opportunity isn't for everyone. You will need to work purely for equity, though we are targeting a liquidity event in less than 18 months. Because of this aggressive schedule, your equity will actually vest in only 12 months. We plan to allocate up to 25% of the equity of the venture to this founding team.

While we are recruiting individuals, we will give special preference to small groups that apply as a team. The reasons for this will be apparent after we talk.

Because of the great potential of this venture, you will be required to sign an NDA before we interview you.

If you or your team are interested in applying, contact printersinkproject@gmail.com. We recommend that you email your resume and provide links to online writing samples such as personal web sites, blogs, or other such written content.




P.S. Happy New Year!

What do you expect me to do...ignore this?!

I'm glad to hear that you're onto another great venture! I was kind of getting worried there for a while :) Would love to know the juicy details when you're out of stealth.

All the best!

How much time would it require? Is this a full time job or what?

My bad. I forgot to mention that we're expecting a 10-20 hour per week time commitment.
