Web Designer Needed in Maple Ridge

Wanted:  A Talented and enthusiastic website designer who wants to help build the next generation of the Internet
At Left of the Dot Media, we’re an emerging company that is building and marketing a new domain monetization program for high-quality, million-dollar domain names. This is achieved by leasing out sub-domains and websites direct to end users (e.g. Luxury.Villa.com) and building real businesses onto the primary domain name. To help us grow and meet demand for our services, we need some passionate and driven website developers and a few website designers to help grow our new platform and our business.
Our office is waaaay out here in Maple Ridge. The way we see things. . .  Maple Ridge is a growing, vibrant community filled with talented technologists and creative professionals who are sick and tired of wasting 500+ hours on the West Coast Express every year. And if you are like the company’s founders, who are Maple Ridge locals, you would like to use those the time you would have spent commuting on perfecting a work/life balance, or on building some really cool websites that have the potential to transform the Internet at its very core. If you are from Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Coquitlam, Surrey, Langley, etc. . . you owe it to yourself to explore the opportunity and save months every year on your commute.
So if this sounds intriguing and want to try and build something spectacular, then keep on reading.
