This project is highly confidential. A non-disclosure agreement(NDA) must be signed before any definitive details are disclosed.

The Opportunity: A unique chance to not only be part of a potentially hugely profitable pioneering company, but to change the world, prevent vast suffering, take the Internet to the next phase by focusing on the QUALITY of our most important relationships, instead the quantity of relationships.
