We're looking for someone who will actually come in and be part of the
company, and work with us to make MyPolice something great. We need
someone who lives in Scotland with experience and commitment.
Ideally, we are looking for someone who has been through the
experience of setting up a business before.

We want our developer to work with us not for us, so we can look at
alternative ways of building the site. Basically our developer would
be a co-director and have a large input on the shape of the site.

We want someone who will work well with designers to create common a
understanding and language, rather than sitting at polar opposites as
is so often the case.

We're offering an immediate start. Salary 25 - 30K
