About Us:

Hopes is a Crowdfunding platform for NGOs and non-profits who seek funding to build and support the awesome causes that help make this world a better place to live.

Job Description:

Before I begin with all the requirements and the same old boring stuff. I want to highlight that, we are looking for a right match/bonding here. We have a really great idea (of course, right?) and have the designs built for our MVP. We would like for someone to join our team (of 3 founders) as a CTO (and make it 4). We are willing to give equity and are also in currently talks with some investors who can help us with seed funding round. Lastly, we are in the process of applying to incubators as well. I understand that just equity might be a matter of concern and a considerate amount of risk, but hey its a startup and risks are always involved. Also, I would like for you to hear our idea first and see if we can be the right fit and then make a decision :).

All the best !
