Help us build a skills sharing solution that allows companies to engage and develop their workforce by matching relevant employees through machine learning.

Talking Circles is a rich, mobile-first, responsive SaaS web solution built with AngularJS and Django. We're looking for someone who is excited about being thrust into the heart of a fast-moving start-up, with free rein - and encouragement - to actively contribute to strategic, product, and business development.

You’ll be joining the two co-founders - ideally starting February 2017. The first three months will be a high-speed proof of concept phase where we will be working together and getting to know each other. In the first three months, basic expenses will be paid while we close our funding round. Salary & equity will be negotiable at the point of joining, based on experience.

You’ll be working directly with me, Somesh Selvachandran - a full stack developer with 12 years experience. I’ve previously ran a global development team at Morgan Stanley doing pre-trade pricing for Institutional Equity Derivatives.

Dimple Lalwani and I founded Talking Circles in May 2016 around a shared passion for better workplace culture and helping people in their careers. We’re part of the Techstars network and Accelerator Academy.
