If you live in the San Francisco area, you and your iPhone are needed…STAT!
Ok, it’s not all that urgent, but it could be a cool opportunity. Some background:
http://www.coffeeandpower.com is an online marketplace that allows mobile or freelance professionals (but it’s not limited) to buy and sell small jobs from one another. (It’s like Fiverr, but with a slightly higher budget and better quality). Lots of people make a decent income finding work on C&P. So the site’s creators decided they’d help out by making it easier for those mobile professionals to find each other and work together in person.
Coffee & Power has a newly minted iPhone coworking app which enables professionals who routinely cowork to rapidly find one another and work together. (You may have previewed this at GCUC where C&P co-founder Fred was demoing it.) It’s available on the iPhone store now at http://bit.ly/candpapp.
And here’s the part where you come in:
“We are looking for 10 to 20 people from the San Francisco tech community to help us roll out the next version of Coffee & Power. We’re developing an iPhone app which enables C&P tech professionals who routinely work in public locations like coffee shops and coworking facilities to rapidly find one another and work together.
“We need help testing and using the early versions of the app as well as greeting and helping newly arriving members as we scale up, and will potentially pay a small weekly stipend if you match these requirements:
You are in tech (design, development, marketing, management)
You cowork at a public location in SF (coffee shop, open co-working facility, etc) 3+ days/week
You have an iPhone (with iOS version 5 or greater)
You are friendly and approachable
“If you meet these requirements and could spare a little time every day to help us, email us at ambassadors -at- coffeeandpower.com with: your favorite places in SF to cowork, a link to your bio/resume/FB, and a quick description of the kind of things you do while coworking.”
Voila! Now go forth, and collaborate!
