Some may know me, some may not. My name is Glenn Barres and I have been in web development for over 9 years now. I started off making little advertisement websites for my mentor, Chris Toughill, when I was 19. I have always had an immense interest in computers, namely video games, for as long as I can remember. I got into computers because I wanted to make my own video games. Much has changed since that initial desire, but the desire has not. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in a wide area of environments including web hosting, application development, application service providers, ISP's, telco, (a telephone company), marketing, and media creation. All of these within a Windows and *NIX based platforms. I personally have designed from scratch helpdesk systems, point of sale interfaces, hosting management systems, numerous personal and professional websites, billing systems, call detail systems(that was a tricky one), Meta search engines, and Multiple Level Marketing platforms, (not pyramid schemes). There are probably others that are just escaping me at this time. This is my general professional background. Now my main interests are in Neuro-science (the science of the mind/brain), user friendliness, entertainment, and non invasive marketing. What this means is that I have a desire to create applications that are fun, easy to use, immensely popular, (via word of mouth and non annoying advertisement), and help promote elevated levels of thinking. To put it simply, I am an idea guy. Ideas flow through me like water over the Niagara Falls. It is impossible for me to look at something in life and not get an idea on how to make it better. So one day I decided to take all I know and turn it into a profitable venture called Mediawake. This being said, I will get to my point.
My company, Mediawake LLC, is in need of developers and other like-minded individuals as myself. If your interests are close to mine then you have a very good chance in being part of this company. If they are not, you still have a chance so keep reading, we do after all like diversity, it keeps the juices flowing. Mediawake is about a year old and up till now has focused on the development of other people's ideas. At this time we are refocusing on our own ideas. I have come to realize though that I cannot do it all myself. Hence, the reason for this post. I am looking for people to fit the needs and growth of this exciting new company. Below you will find a list of the most desired positions with the most important first.
Programmer, (PHP, MySQL a must, working Linux knowledge a plus)
