Remote – Real Estate Tech Startup – Website Developer

Website Developer (unpaid)

 About our venture

 This is a student-run venture founded by two students, one at Duke and one at Cornell. Our venture is a real estate matching service that provides landlords and tenants with the best fit possible by reversing the rental process. Think eHarmony for real estate.

Our mission is to increase transparency in the right places, showing off each tenant’s reliability while eliminating bias by removing demographical information from tenants’ profiles. Landlords find the best tenant possible, while tenants don’t have to spend hours searching for an apartment.

Job Description

 We are looking for a full stack developer, open to the idea of becoming our third and final co-founder. This should be a student who will be dedicated to the venture while also staying true to our mission and values.

We have proven demand through market research and developed a functional wireframe for the product. Our website developer will be tasked with building the front and back end of this platform as a minimum viable product (MVP) and eventually a fully functional website.

Job Requirements

·      Full stack development experience

·      Willing to learn about the real estate industry and our product’s implications

·      Willing to take part in entrepreneurship programs offered through Duke and Cornell

·      Some interest in business and entrepreneurship beyond just the technical aspect

Remote – White Paper Project

From Duke Alum Les Ottolenghi: Several of the F-500 companies we are consulting with have limited resources to develop Whitepapers for:

1.) the New IT operating models,
2.) new cybersecurity operating models and
3.) Digital Business Transformation Roadmaps including high-level business models?
Would there be an interest from students to develop – per our guidance – and author white papers (max 15-20pp) and an operating model (high level DCF estimates for new business lines) with a roadmap (again 15-20pp). We also have a request for a future of journalism whitepaper — “what does journalism with truth and trust look like in the 21st century — workable models, and a way to re-invent local journalism”

My estimate is 3-4 students to do all three projects or possibly a 5 with a good writer/editor.
