At this link, I’ll add jobs that are available from people I trust, and availability of people I trust who are looking to make a change. My goal is simply to make great people aware of great gigs and great people. In most cases, you’ll be able to connect directly with the hiring manager or person looking. As always, feel free to connect directly with me, if you wish.
Here’s the profile of product manager PRO whom I highly recommend. Ping me for an email intro, or reach out via Linkedin.

Curebit – Senior front-end developer
Join an early stage movement to disrupt how companies acquire customers. They make referral systems, so companies that customers love can grow without advertising.

SurfAir – front-end engineer
Great place to work. Surf boards on the wall…with plenty of sand from recent trips. Office is 4 blocks from the beach. Bikes for employees. Everyone from CEO to Interns work in the same space next to each other. It’s a team of friends. From 5 to 20 people in 6 months. Should double again by year’s end.
But most importantly – they’re actually fixing the flight experience.
