Hi Guys

Don't you think these days it always seems like everyone is just in it for a quick buck!? I have a number of ideas I'd like to get off the ground and projects currently under development and I'd like to find people who have the time and inclination to work on these projects, during business hours, in our fine office in the Hutt!

Essentially, I'm looking for collaborators, not contractors or employees. People who are willing to put in time and effort now, for zilch return, in the hope that we all might get a return when our projects go live/are commercialised.

I want people who can also come up with ideas, ideas where we can help develop and build for no return also, and maybe share in the spoils at the end of the hard long slog!

Like I said, some of our projects are already underway/mostly done, and just need some extra hands to fine tune and get out there!

You'll get to hang out and throw ideas around a great team, work in a cool office (a great place to base your own startup/freelance from), and we might even make some money at some point!

If anyone is interested - maybe you are unemployed, or a bored part time student - then get in touch with me!

James - Developing for fun!

This sounds like quite a fun and exciting environment to be apart of. I have a full time job in Wellington so  the chances of me being able to be apart of it full time are slim to none. Could possibly do weekends though (if you're that committed).

How many people are currently in the team? Age group? 

Could you give us a little bit of detail about the things you are working on? Not necessarily a detailed run-down, but are they web/mobile apps? What languages are you using for them etc?

Heya, yeah we do some weekends, but generally wives and girlfriends moan if they happen too often.

If any body is contracting and can choose where they work, it'd be ideal also.

We are currently working on a couple of web apps, one with a mobile app already and one with a mobile app in the pipeline. One of the projects is being contracted to us, i.e. its all paid and we could work on an arrangement for that, like a workswap or just an hourly rate on an as-is needed basis.

One of the projects is not yet commercialised and is still gonna need a bit of work before its ready for a wide audience!

There are three of us here currently full time, plus a fourth "sometimer" (maybe we just need hot desks!?) we are all males (so far) and in the 18 - 30 bracket.

For development we use mainly PHP.

Our other part of the business is our IT support, but that has its bases covered at the moment!
