I am a communications officer at the American Red Cross with responsibility for Latin America and the Caribbean. My background includes work in social media, traditional media and advocacy.
We are two experienced lawyers in their early 30's who have developed a
post-Groupon business model involving online banking and e-commerce. We
are looking to add a third person to the team who may eventually become
the Chief Technology Officer. Our immediate needs are for this person
to (1) develop demo software that we can use to approach prospective
investors and (2) lead the development of our business technology.
Our ideal candidate is a motivated and results-oriented developer with
strong programming skills (ideally in API, SQL, and interface
construction) and a good understanding of online business models.
Experience working with financial institutions is preferred.
Compensation will be in equity. We both have full-time jobs, so work
hours will be flexible and results-oriented. Our work environment is
fun, supportive, and professional.
A DC-based relationship “personality” needs a part-time social media friend to help with regular promotion of our website and related activities. Responsibilities will include regularly posting articles/blogs to Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter. S/he will have knowledge of current trends in social media and help us to continually develop our social media strategy.
• Ongoing social media promotion including, but not limited to, the use of Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In.
• Suggest and implement new social media strategies/outlets.
Countless hours of research, interviews with experts, fundraising, and trashcans full of crumpled designs have all come down to this moment...
The Challenge: work on a team using the Agile development method (2-week cycles) to build a minimum viable product (MVP) in Ruby for a unique social network website that fills a major black-hole on the web. The website is in the category of a “facebook” or “linkedin” in functionality, design and potential user base, but it is the first of its kind in both the problems it addresses and the capability it offers.
The scope and designs are very well-defined. Now the site just needs the sharp mind and the fluid hands of a team of Ruby developers to launch this bad-boy before the Russians do.

We are looking for a student to work with us on a study of website passwords. We are looking at "password rules"--lists of requirements that organizations impose on their users when they create new passwords. Our goal is to transform natural language password policies into a machine-readable grammar (e.g., BNF). We have several different design ideas in mind, ranging from something that will parse natural language and interact with a user for validation, to something that is purely interactive.
Once this tool is written, we expect to use it for at least two different purposes. First, we would like to conduct usability testing of the tool to examine if it allows users to specify password requirements with fewer ambiguities. Second, we would like to use the tool to build a corpus of organizational password requirements so that we can perform a longitudinal of password requirements across varying industries.
We are looking for someone who has:
-background in computer security
-experience conducting usability studies -ability to program web applications -ability to get to NIST's campus in Gaithersburg
We would like to hire someone part time during the school year, and then full time over the summer.
