Geeklist is the first ever achievement based network for developers to showcase their accomplishments, share their resources and connect with companies. ( Here's a private beta invite for Vator/Splash geekli.st/invite/founders code: bloodymary )
There is no other place on the web where you can find out who built what, using which technologies, who they built it with, when and for whom.
Inside Geeklist you'll find the worlds leading developers sharing great achievements like:
Geeklist's team consists of the worlds leading Node.js developers, business leaders and social media gurus. You can tell how amazing the team is by seeing who is contributing in our Github account https://github.com/geeklist
Our co-founders have both been building successful businesses and products for 15 years each. By haing one founder focused on technology, while the other focused on building community and the business we're the perfect team, complementing and filling any hole. Here's the bios, although the people surrounding them are far more important. Ask us about our advisors, investors and most importantly, our kick ass team of the worlds leading developers! (Yes, we're geeklist so we have no problem hiring.)
Co-founder & CEO, Geeklist
Reuben is the original badass entrepreneur, hustler and visionary. He focuses his time on building the Geeklist business, creating the brand vision and rallying everyone around us to believe in the Geeklist mission.
He’s built countless brands and businesses and is an active investor in technology and education. Notably, during the first bubble he founded, built and sold iLeon.com, the Amazon of Books in Spanish. When not working Reuben dedicates his time to his wife Natasha, daughter Bela and their Maltese dog, Luciano.
Co-founder, CTO & Chief Product, Geeklist
Chris is the original badass code monkey and passionate inventor of the Geeklist idea. He focuses his time on building out the product, coding like a madman and rallying geeks to join our initiative.
Before Geeklist he was CTO @storify, CTO & VP at Deca.tv, built Break.com 1.0, and served at Disney Online, Go.com and Loopnet. Chris enjoys spending his weekends hanging out with his wife Denise, and their 2-year old son Diego…oh and coding some more.
To begin, we've landed our first paying customers, including Spotify. Our clients pay a subscription monthly per 'seat' or in our case 'profile'. Our beta revenues that we have just begun billing for are based on an $700/month per seat model for companies. This is equal to that of Linkedin, Monster, Dice, only their information is flat resume based.
Our business model builds a global community of the worlds most valuable resource. More valuable than their weight in gold, Developers are sought after around the world and finding who has built what has been impossible. Until now. We give you the very first Who did what, where, when and with what technology, with whom they built it, for whom and what was the outcome.
Just imagine the data we have gathered already. Want to know who built Airbnb's Mobile solutions? There's a card for that. Want to know who scaled Twitter or built the #newnewtwitter? There are cards for that too.
So to make money we first charge a subscription to 'Verified Companies' to utilize our back end tools to communicate and build relationships with developers. This fills up their pipeline of developers and helps them recruit because we all know the best recruits come from referrals, which come from relationships. Next we get into data and analytics. Yes, who uses what, where they use it, what they use it on and with whom.
There is no place for developers to share and brag about their great work. No place where they can interact, communicate and build their Geek Identity. We do this by providing developers a way to communicate in an organic manner which comes naturally to them, unlike resumes which just suck. Our competitive advantage is in our unique achievement based network and community. Like Zappos, we do it better than anyone.
It's importat to note that we are building completely transparent social validation tools within the platform. By adding contributors, links and soon 'endorsers' you are able to see much deeper into what the developer really did. Unlike with LinkedIn where it's a very vague, non-relational "works well with others" type of statement. We show you what developers have achieved.
