purpleplanet – Software Solutions is looking to take on an OSX/Mobile App Junior Developer. This is not a full-time position. You will be working on a project basis, with a price agreed before each project commences.
We are preferably seeking someone who is still learning the ropes. We have a large, non-time critical project, which will allow you to significantly increase your development skills on a real project.
Don’t apply if you’re a company or third-party agency. We are looking for a junior with some basic experience, who needs an opportunity to develop their skills in an expanding role.
You should be able to work from home, to an agreed schedule, under your own supervision and be prepared to “check in” on a regular basis with updates.
Please contact us directly if interested. Be prepared to show your portfolio!
