    Hi All

    I'm looking for a London based top notch Web developer/designer in the start up space, who wants to join a potentially high growth start up as a tech co-founder. It is in the massive travel/language industries.

    The prototype is already built but I need to re-vamp it and add some features. The site uses standard stuff, built using Ruby on Rails, running over a Postgres database, using Twitter's Bootstrap CSS+JS framework.

    I'm also looking to join the next seedcamp accelerator programme. Applications are due 12/8 so I want to find someone by then if possible. But I won't rush it and take the wrong person. Anyway, if you or someone you know are a good fit and may be interested please get in touch. We can discuss details then. Many cheers

    Would love to improve my pitching skills since I believe presenting skills are very very important in order to get your message across and motivate the team.
