Hi Shun,

I found your resume online and I wanted to reach out to you because I specialize in placing PHP, UI/UX engineers. My client is building the next massive social platform for online communities where people can meet, socialize, and collaborate around a common interest. Users will experience a network that beautifully integrates advanced technologies such as augmented reality, media streaming, and content-based chat achieving an extreme level of live, user-to-user interaction.

They are launching the web’s largest (+56 million users) and most hardcore fan community: Lady Gaga’s “Little Monsters”. They’re fully funded by world renowned investors: Eric Schmidt, Lady Gaga, Google Ventures, Tomorrow Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Justin Bieber, and many other top entertainment and Silicon Valley professionals.

Check them out at on Techcrunch (http://goo.gl/6lc6e) and the New York Times (http://goo.gl/piQt6) to get a sense of what they’re working on!

Let me know if this sounds like something you’re interested in.
