Entire Bay Area Full Time
Salary: Equity then $100k+ after funding

PeopleMovers® is creating a powerful platform for governments, foundations, nonprofits, schools, businesses and citizens to communicate and work TOGETHER on shared issues with more focus than the big social networks. We now have an urgent need for a talented and driven CTO to lead the development of our exciting platform so our CEO, Keith Zendler, can focus on getting cities globally on board.

We are currently based in Detroit (and are open to moving to NYC or SV based on funding) and have developed a game-changing “Community Network” for leaders, their organizations and the people they serve, to work together on local and global issues at It is a new platform with many new apps coming for public engagement; It has been developed with input from thousands of leaders and organizations across the US (primarily Detroit and New York City) and India and will initially target city governments, police departments, foundations and nonprofit organizations.

This has been no small undertaking. Fortunately, we are now within months of being ready to launch the complete platform in a big way. Based on customer response, we are confident we have a model with global scalability that can have achieve multi-billion dollar exits, but we can’t go any farther without filling this key role.

Initial responsibilities will include:

  • Clean up existing code base for optimum performance (you'll need to be our coding "rock star" in the beginning)
  • Implement tweaks and upgrades to functionality to get us on par with major networks
  • Help CEO create prototypes for our line-up of mobile apps
  • Prepare for and participate in investor meetings
  • Build a team of fantastic and passionate web and mobile developers and engineers
  • All the usual stuff you’d expect out of a CTO... be ready for a big run needing serious leadership skills

This position will require a period of working for significant equity until completion of our Series A funding round and/or cash flow permits.

If this sounds like an opportunity that you can get excited about one that fits your skills and background, email Keith Zendler, CEO & Founder, at so we can arrange a Skype meeting.

The need for facilitating constructive conversations and ongoing collaboration between various community stakeholders has never been more urgent. Let’s use technology to help bring people together!
