Web and App Development

$1000+ and Equity

$1000+ and Equity

Description is a new venture aiming to deliver a two-sided marketplace platform - web and mobile - to book/request home maintenance services in real-time. Two students are needed for this project: one to focus on the website and the other to focus on the mobile app. The two students will get to collaborate to make sure that the functions of both platforms are well integrated. Note that you can apply as a team!

This start-up is offering an amazing paid and equity opportunity to develop a minimum viable platform (product)! The exact split will be determined by you and the founder if you are chosen for this project. The founder is expecting the work to be heavily concentrated between January and February 2017.
