Name:
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I've been online since 1971 and I like to smoothe the way for everyone else. Among other things I co-founded Sympatico, the world's first easy-to-use Internet service (and Canada's largest).

Rohan Jayasekera is on the job market

These days I do freelance work, but for a while now I’ve been on the lookout for a Web 2.0-related “real job” (permanent, or longer-term contract). There is so much happening in the Web 2.0 world, and for me it’s brought back a level of excitement I haven’t had since the mid-1990s when public use of the Internet was beginning to take hold. Back then I ended up being co-founder of what became Canada’s largest Internet service, Sympatico, and its companion portal Sympatico.ca which was Canada’s busiest website. Now I’m again looking for something to sink my teeth into.

What I do is to define and develop software-based products, preferably Web-based. I call myself a “product development manager” (= product manager leaning toward development, as opposed to a “product marketing manager” who leans toward marketing). I started out as a programmer, moved into project management and staff management, and along the way became interested in not only the actual building of the product but also what it does. I love improving a product in a way that helps lots of its users. My ideal best fit is with a smaller company that is creating or extending one or more Web-based products, but I’m certainly open to variations on that. There’s more info and a résumé on my website. If you might have a job for me, or know of someone else who might, I’d appreciate hearing from you (my website has contact info). Thanks!
