Looking for lead the technical team for a new social media platform with the potential to fact-check all online news in real time.

The qualified individual should be ready to commit themselves to a difficult journey to hold liars, BS artists, politicians, trolls, pundits and general a-holes to account for how they behave in our civic discourse online. Fiskkit is a mission-driven startup developing the best possible online discussion - one that favors facts, logic and civility - and incorporates the latest social science and UX research to achieve that goal.

This person should be experienced with enterprise level software development, managing devs, and have personal skill in either Angular or PHP, if not both.

Technical qualification is important, but secondary to finding an individual committed to building a team and an organization dedicated to technical excellence. As an unfunded startup, this person has to be personally motivated to put a check on wrong or dishonest information online, and elevating our civic discourse.

Significant equity is available for the right candidate who joins before fundraising.

See Fiskkit.com for current beta, and video demo for which we received the Launch Festival Social Impact Award.
