We’re working with a serially successful and independently wealthy founder who’s looking for an engineer to help him build an application that involves live streaming audio and AI for a new company he’s founding.

You’d be working with him to build a greenfield application in a stack of your choosing but probably python, node, go, or elixir on the backend and likely react on the frontend.

Provided the engagement is going well after the initial 3 months this would convert into a long term contract.
