HNLondon Message Board › SOFTWARE ARCHITECT/DESIGNER (TECHNICAL CO-FOUNDER) REQUIRED
|A former member||
I am looking for a technical partner to help develop a political internet application.
The app is nearing final stages of development (thanks to a volunteer website designer) but the project is in need of a technical head to fine tune and improve the product.
Are you a wizard at interactive online products and visual design?
This is a long-term opportunity for a highly motivated, committed and talented individual to manage the full lifecycle software development process of an exciting new web project.
The successful candidate will have an interest in politics and work closely with the Director to progress and launch a high potential web tool to the specifications of the Director. Work will be on a voluntary/unpaid basis until the business starts making money, at which time a negotiatable share of profits can be taken.
Applicants will be required to submit a signed confidentiality agreement on invitation to interview in person or by webcam. To apply, please send a cover letter detailing achievements relevant to job description and person specification, a CV with two references (academic/professional) and samples of work produced to (reply to this posting for an email address) .
This is a chance to get stuck into both user research and design; front and back end development - from conception and ideation through to design definition. Some usability and interaction design experience is desirable but not essential.
The ideal person will have the ability to build what they design; build to design specification; excellent communication skills and ability to explain their design decisions; curiosity and passion for crafting amazing experiences; and ideally a portfolio of self-started projects.
More details about the project and the founder will be given to shortlisted applicants.
