Web/App Developer: Technologist in Residence | Nesta

Web/App Developer: Technologist in Residence | Nesta.  Sounds like a good scheme.  The programme will work with four Scottish local authorities (Edinburgh, East Lothian, Clackmannanshire and Aberdeen) to identify the problems they wish to try and solve using digital technology (apps, websites, etc). These could be straight forward issues, for example like local travel and transport, tourism and leisure information; to ‘grittier’ issues like crime, health, youth unemployment.

We are looking for independent developers who are interested in working for a good cause, creative, well-organised with experience of open data platforms. Developers will join the local authority teams as a Nesta Technologist in Residence (either part time or full time for six-nine months depending on the local situation and your commitments).
