you know
incompetent in the kitchen?

very different culinary competition show!

This is the opportunity of a lifetime, to work with the best
chefs in
the country and learn to cook like a professional.
Seeking people with LARGER THAN LIFE PERSONALITIES with a
inability to cook, but a need and desire to improve!

• Has your wife/husband told you it was probably better if
you ordered
take out?

bring the napkins?"

• Is someone you know constantly offering you food that you
have to turn down?
• If you know a dad/mom who can't scramble an egg, a
colleague who
can't convince anyone to try their culinary creations, or a
guy friend
who tries but can't seem to get it together in the kitchen,
this is
your chance to get them the help you BOTH need!

SF - Job Opp - MyRockstar.com


Begin forwarded message:

I am advising a new music-focused start-up called MyRockstar (www.myrockstar.com), founded by Tickle.com co-founder Rick Marini (Tickle sold to Monster.com for $100MM in '04). They've been in private beta since the Spring and are gearing up for a launch in September. They're angel funded, have serious investor interest, yet are still a small team in a great office space in Union Square in SF.

They're looking to add a two more engineers to the team before the outside money comes in. Specifically, they're looking for folks who *love* to write code, are great communicators, have done start-ups before, and ideally, who are passionate about music. They need a front-end engineer (html/CSS/Javascript/Flash) and a back-end engineer (Java, databases, etc). To see the full job descriptions, go to: http://myrockstar.jobscore.com

They're looking for two elite engineers who know what it means to get options before the dilution associated with outside investment happens. And they're paying salary and benefits from day one.

If you or anyone you know might be interested, please contact me at:jamie[dot]perlman[at]gmail[dot]com

Thanks in advance for your help.
