L.A. startup with huge potential that is starting to raise initial funding. One co-founder is a successful senior executive that has helped scale a number of tech businesses. The other co-founder was a recent NCAA tennis champion who has also helped companies scale their operations. The business is empowering people to reach their goals – a self-improvement platform and marketplace for all verticals, starting with tennis and quickly broadening out to other verticals.
Can work well in an early stage, fast-paced, unknown, and changing startup environment. Smart, hard-working, and collaborative (with founders, advisors and co-workers). Management experience is not necessary at this stage as the company has a number of senior tech advisors. We are looking for smart people with excellent problem-solving skills who are ambitious and want to be on the ground floor of a start-up company in Los Angeles.

Front end developer:

*Creative and confident enough to take a risk on a design that does not currently exist
*Game-like experience of either creating or carrying out addictive tendencies to complete tasks a major plus
