Starting a Startup

I have decided to start a bootstrapping startup around the development of modern web applications!

This means we’re starting with exactly 0 initial funding and growing with end-user sales from existing products only.

If you are one of the following:

  • Web Developer (full-stack, pref. Go & TypeScript)
  • Graphics Designer
  • UI/UX Designer
  • Marketer

Please get in contact with me.

Due to the nature of bootstrapping, being in this is more of a future investment rather than a quick way to get money. I can not offer any payment in the initial phase where we get started building products, however this situation will change once products are starting to sell.

This will by no means be an easy task because bootstrapping is considered one of the hardest things to pull off, however I am willing to try it and learn from the experience.

Personally, I am operating this in parallel to “normal work”, so I can have a stable source of income. I would expect people interested in this startup to do the same.

Name is not decided yet, I am thinking something along the lines of “Pixalize” (typo intended), but ultimately I’d like to ask the first people who join what we should be called.

There are a few ideas currently in progress but if you have your own idea of a web app that could improve people’s lives, you can suggest it and we’ll take a look at how reasonable the idea is. I want people to work on services they care about, they should have fun in the process. For you to have fun developing the service is of utmost importance to me.

You can work from anywhere. Remote work is possible via video communication on Google Hangouts. English is the company internal communication language. Your location is irrelevant but I’d prefer people close to JST/Tokyo timezone simply because it’s easier to meet up at similar times. If you are in Kyoto/Osaka, in the Kansai area of Japan, we can also arrange to meet up face-to-face.

Feel free to leave me a message on any social network if this resonates with you.
