We are looking for people with experience in:
Web Development / Graphics

experience a plus. We have seen a great deal of bad user / product
/ developer documentation and don't propose to pay people to
create any more.
Experience with use of Web-based vendor HR benefits, etc.
administration packages, also experience with standard
applications for this purpose. While we plan to be using
applications which you have probably never seen for your purposes,
you must understand how current tools work to make it worthwhile
to train you on the new ones. You will not be screening resumes,
you can expect to provide support for benefit administration,
getting information out about company policies and routine
in-house company information. Basic html experience will be
helpful, you'll probably be disseminating a significant amount of
information via company intranet.

You have in some way participated as a manager / VP / CEO / CFO / CIO in the actual provision of goods and services.
If your previous track record is:
The "let's hope a bigger sucker buys us" management style is obsolete as of the dot.com crash. In fact, this kind of management style won't even get a company to IPO, people are looking for value and a believable business model now.
Successful Old Economy experience is a good thing, but you need to show that you understand the Internet environment, both technical and social.
Finally, we've worked for the kind of management that's the primary source of humor in the Dilbert ® comic strip. We don't plan to pay for any. We can't afford the kind of inefficiency and misplaced priorities the comic strip describes.
Note: the Dilbert comic strip is an intellectual property owned by United Media. As can be readily seen, no content from the actual comic strip is used on this site, those of you who enjoy the comic strip should click the above link.
Most assignments and positions will be telecommute, applicants must have own equipment and software. In some cases (electronic or mechanical design) this will include electronics or computer lab equipment or a home workshop. For certain business functions, a permanent location with a recognizable address works better where people will be coming to work, this will be created and will evolve as needed. When we need people to put in a central business location, we'll announce it.
Send documents as .txt, .rtf, .html, .jpg, .gif., .xls, .sxw , tmd , .dxf , dwg .doc and other MS Office document formats (e.g. PowerPoint or Excel) should be Office 97 or earlier. Please keep any document submissions under 1 Mb, if you need more, contact us and tell us what you have in mind, the same if you have a document to send not in the above formats. If you're running Open Office or Textmaker or Planmaker, go ahead and send it.
Since we're still looking for funding at this point, don't call us, we'll call you.
Microsoft will probably not be used in our hardware products If all you have is an MCP/MCSE and no experience, or your experience is NT/2000/XP/2003 + IIS only, or your experience is Windows-only, we can't use you for technical positions,
For telecommuting non-technical positions, we don't plan to support MS file formats past Office 97 / W98SE , and have already migrated to the Linux distribution Debian Etch (testing using VMware Server to deal with legacy Windows applications and formats. Our primary document formats will be Open Document.
This isn't a position based on the religious war between MS and open source, it's merely that -ix is easy to lock down in a userbase that's never seen a CLI and it rarely crashes, preconfigured machines for embedded use should result in a lower TCO than MS can deliver. The problems with Windows itself are well known and the new Vista means new bugs. The other point is that since there's no reason for a new company to put up with vendor lockin via format, we aren't going to.
Most of our associates will only be working a few hours a week solving specific assigned problems for us and doing a day job with another tech company or consultancy.
ReptileLabs is intended to be a mostly virtual place full of bright, interesting people doing unusual things.
You want to invent the future? ReptileLabs might be your starting point.
We have a related project intended to build a company intended to be the dominant provider of a financial infrastructure product, meaning that once the basic technology is built and the network is rolled out technological growth will be incremental, it isn't supposed to be exciting at that point. If this appeals to you, write "Project 2" in the subject header of your resume submission. Software background with POS systems or supermarket back-end systems would be of special interest here.
