Job Description

About Bottle Rocket:
Bottle Rocket is dedicated to creating high quality iPhone applications and mobile solutions. We believe exceptionally innovative technology not only enhances the way we do things - it redefines the way we live our lives. To us, the iPhone is more than a sophisticated phone; it’s a game-changing platform uniting information, instant access and unlimited range to create entertainment and enterprise solutions.

About Working for Bottle Rocket:
We do not use Windows machines. We are a 100% Mac organization. We all know the iPhone and iPad inside and out and have owned iPhones since they first came out. We're very positive minded and don't get along with people who aren't. We work as a team. We're mature, self-driven professionals who bring our past experience to the table and check our egos at the door. We love our craft and do what it takes to get the job done. We believe in accountability and sometimes find ourselves catching up on work in the evening and weekends. We build excellent applications with only the highest standards. We value aesthetics and UI. We work hard and have fun doing it. We love the iPhone and iPad and believe mobile is the most important platform, period.


This position will lead an important group of projects for Bottle Rocket including setting vision, working with customers, architecting a technical solution (server and app-based), leading people, working with outside vendors, speaking with and presenting to prospects and more. This is a senior hire and only applicants who have lead groups of 10 people or more and dealt directly with customers should apply. Applicants must also demonstrate a VERY STRONG capability to architect technical solutions and communicate them to development teams (in detail) as well as customers (high level but complete explanations). Applicants must also have previous business development experience (either in sales or sales engineering or running their own business). Applicant MUST have a strong experience on the platform. In other words, if you haven't owned an iPhone for a year, please do not apply. This is not an account management position. You must bring your own leadership skills and be self-motivated. Your compensation will be based at least partially on the success of the project(s) you are running. This is a perfect job for an "intrepreneur". You will have great responsibility and will be expected to hit the ground running.
