Manaʻomia: Technologist Extraordinaire

Polokalama CompendiumMy good friend and mentor, Chris Baggott, is on the search for a CTO for his company, Polokalama Compendium. Since this is a startup, Chris is looking to put together an aggressive package that will attract the star he needs. Chris and Ali Sales have a fantastic vision for Compendium, they have funding, and now they want to get down to brass tacks and get the system built.

I can't talk too much about what the system will do, only that it's a revolutionary look at blogging that will drive business results, especially for corporate blogs. Chris needs someone with the talent in their fingertips to drive this vision to reality. Ideally, this individual should have a background in startups, social networking, blogging, search, and the development and architectures needed to build an enterprise level application. Of course, a fantastic background in development is a must-have – utilizing the best technologies (your choice).

If you're talented, this can be your ticket. Chris helped grow ExactTarget to Inc 500's fastest growing companies in the country. He's the real deal. For more information and to submit your resume, contact Chris through Compendium's website. No contractors wanted – this is a single, full-time position.

    Hey Doug. This sounds exciting and actually right up your alley.

    I’m surprised that you wouldn’t jump at this opportunity since you have such a good working and personal relationship with Chris.

    It seems the past few months has been a great time for startups to get acquired, so anyone with the skills should jump at this right away… who knows, Compendium could become the next purchase from a major player…

    Just think of the stock options 🙂

      Hi Sean,

      Chris is a stand-up guy and he would never risk pulling talent from ExactTarget for his own endeavors.

      Also, I think Chris really needs someone with a strong professional programming background. Though I’ve developed professionally, I’m much more of a product manager, identifying strategies and client needs, then turning those into requirements for development teams. That’s my niche.

      I am posting this on my blog, though, so that my network can reach out. Chris needs the best of the best on this and I want to do everything I can to help with Compendium’s success! Pass this info on if you know of someone.

    Thank you for the post Doug. Unfortunatly, my non-compete with ExactTarget puts Doug out of my reach.

    The right person for this has leadership, vision and will work very very hard to make this company successful. We know what we want the software to do…we have customers lining up…we just need the right team member to come along and lead our technology efforts.

      Hi Marty!

      Wow! Another local talented entrepreneur visiting my site! For those of you folks that haven’t seen nor hear of Wild Birds Unlimited, their motto is “Bringing people and nature together is behind everything we do.” They are an incredible company.

      And they are incredible marketers. I’ve rarely seen a company that does such a great job at communicating with their customers and bonding with them. (My grandfather is a proud customer!)

      Thanks for stopping by, Marty. Compendium is the evolution of blogging! While other folks are building platforms and plugins, Chris’ company is building a solution that brings search and content together! I can’t wait to test drive it!
