The people you work with

We are all people people. Let me explain.

Most people who work in organizations and have a “job” work with other people in that organization. The 33%+ of your normal day and 50%+ of your conscious day is usually spent interacting with other fellow human beings who subscribe to the same club and get similar benefits.

Hence, the people you work with make or break the experience for you. It becomes very important that you have a chance to interact in detail with the people who you are going to dedicate 50%+ of your day.

My personal motivations are mutual respect, and acting as a reservoir of support. Everybody can do wonderful things when there’s belief and support. If the team decides to focus on the job as a collective whole (which is definitely possible) and delegates work based on the strengths and weaknesses of the group, it would be a cohesive whole that truly achieves economies of scope, scale, value, time and everything else towards realizing those goals.

So, get to know the people who you will work with. It will make your experience that much richer, fulfilling and a pleasure.

Good luck.

P.S. I have had the tremendous fortune of working with some amazing people in my experience at Siemens and through Thunderbird. And things are certainly looking up for my next experience beginning in about a month. 🙂

On the lookout for good talent…

If anyone is interested in working with me on an idea of mine, please pass me a holler. I am looking for someone who has an aptitude to get things done…


+ Solid web development knowledge
+ Preferably wide open-source knowledge
+ Preferably with wide products base (you must have at least 2 website designs/back ends to your name)
+ Must be aware of the various ways to get rapid development done.
+ Designing ability would be an added plus

+ Excellent communication skills (should be able to understand me well…)
+ Must be interested in finishing things
+ Must have proven ability to put ideas into code…

+ Must *NOT* be a morose person

I would prefer someone from Bangalore. However, the location really is not an issue as long as you would be accessible online during scheduled meetings or otherwise via phone. I would prefer someone who has no issues with their place of work, if they are working currently.

The fees is negotiable within limits and I will be aiding you with the development as well. Please post a comment in this section if you are interested. The opening will be available till the end of February 2008.
