[on behalf of Earl Roach III]

Hello EDM Community,

Purro <http://www.mypurro.com/> Inc. is looking for a technical
cofounder/CTO to join our early-stage EdTech startup. We are building an AI
driven multi-sided software platform that helps students launch fulfilling
careers in business, and helps employers increase new-hire retention. To
provide more context around the company, our traction, and role, we have
included more information below.


At Purro, we believe everyone deserves a fulfilling career. We have
prepared over 300 students for job applications, interviews, and internship
opportunities. Through an AI driven multi-sided software platform, our goal
is to help over 500 M people establish their path to success.


College students do not receive personalized career exploration and
preparation guidance, especially with an average student-to-counselor ratio
of 482:1.1 Parents are concerned about their children’s ability to build a
financially viable and fulfilling career, but do not have the necessary
resources to guide their children. Employers also struggle, with most
spending up to $12,000 to bring on new hires, as 61% of graduates leave
their first job within 2 years.

*Role characteristics*

We believe the following characteristics and skills would be a good match
for what our team needs:

Full-stack development experience

Knowledge of Machine Learning

Architecture / Infrastructure

Independent & willing to work remote

Drawn to the mission of the company

Continuous learner

We are most interested in someone who believes in the vision and is excited
to take the company forward.


We have attached additional information if you are interested to learn
more. Please reach out to us at team@xxxxxxxxxxx; we look forward to
hearing from you!

*                                            *

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
