Title: Web-Based Game Developer
Company: Miss Possible
Contact: Janna Eaves <jeaves2@xxxxxxxxxxxx> 4015951489
Hiring for: Part time
Campus startup, Miss Possible is soliciting the help of a student to
develop problem-solving-type online games. Miss Possible's mission is to
promote the presence of strong female role models in the lives of young
girls. We hope to do this by selling a series of dolls that represent
amazing women in a fun, relatable manner. The factor that differentiates
Miss Possible from every other doll company is what we call the
"Webkinz" or "Neopets" Model. Dolls will come with an access code to a
website where they can play problem-solving games and earn points to
purchase items for their character's use. The problem is we don't know
how to build games. We cannot offer monetary compensation at this time,
but there is a chance of compensation or even equity in the future.


Title: iOS Mobile Developer
Company: Taplet
Contact: Dustin Pourbaba <Dustin@xxxxxxxxxxxx> 5122982018

the footage. You can save pictures directly to your smartphone or upload

We are looking for an experienced iOS developer to join our team and
rock out. You will work alongside our other devs to build out the
application. Some of the things you will help build are our record
features, social platform, innovative browsing section, in-depth user
profiles, and much more. The tasks you work on will be difficult,
interesting, and an opportunity to make use of your creative talent.
Besides heavily working with Objective C, you may come into contact with

Some background info: we are an Austin-based startup working hard to
revolutionize how people snap photos on their smartphone. With the help
of our investors, we build awesomeness in a nimble, fast, and engaging

Creativity is in our DNA and working with the best talent is of the
utmost importance. For more information on the job please email us at
