This individual will be the CTO/co-founder of Urcrowd in a very hands on roll. This individual will be the primary developer of the website and will lead and coordinate all technology related initiatives, including managing an external resource to develop the Urcrowd mobile app.
Urcrowd is an easy way to share and discover images related to where you are or what you're into. Imagine Reddit meets Instagram meets Patch and Urcrowd is born. Essentially, Urcrowd allows users to share and discover images within location and interest based communities. Using our own editing tool, users can also mashup images or use multiple images within one post to tell a story.
