Mike,

Are you taking resumes from contractors/consultants for this position? If so, I have a couple I can send your way.

Best Regards,
Greg Hester
Thanks Greg but our strong preference is to build our in-house team. We have used contractors and consultants in the past and we find that employees demonstrate more passion and commitment to the project when the chips are down. I'm not knocking all of the talented contractors out there but what we want are long term members dedicated to making chi.mp a success.

Chi.mp launched open registration last week and we have had an incredibly positive response...positive press coverage in Tech Crunch, Mashable, PC Mag, New York Times, even People Magazine...and blowing past all our growth estimates for the launch. This is an incredible opportunity for someone who has been doing contract work to find a home on the 'ground floor' in a start-up with a bright future.

Sorry...long way of saying thank you for your offer but no thanks for the time being.

Mike

Mike, I've sent an email to the address with my resume attached. Thanks for posting.
Perfect Timothy - we are firing on all cylinders due to a great reception to last week's launch. Give me a few days to gather resumes, review them with our CTO and then get back to folks to schedule interviews. I hope to get to our next actions on this next week.
