Tech billionaire Evan Williams is known for co-founding Twitter with Jack Dorsey, and founding the two internet platforms Blogger and Medium. In July 2022, Williams (now 50 years old) announced he was stepping down as Medium’s CEO and becoming the chairman of the board. That means Williams has more time on his hands to pursue new projects.
Looking for a developer to help me with a little side project. It's an existing app. Python/Django backend, Next.js frontend. Part-time, contract. Could be a whole thing! (But probably not.) DM me.— Ev (@ev) September 7, 2022
On September 7, Williams made another announcement.
As seen above, he wrote: “Looking for a developer to help me with a little side project. It’s an existing app… Part-time, contract. Could be a whole thing! (But probably not.) DM me.”
P.S. Williams also asks DM-ing job seekers to “include a link to what you’ve built or a LI profile or something.”
