Jobs & Opportunities


Developer Team   
Reality Creating Media
Vacancies: 3
Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Deadline: 31 Jul, 2012

Shadow Election is a service for promoting democratic participation in election debates.

 It was initially trialed in Finland and is about to be soft launched in the US. We are now also preparing a Kenyan version in time for next year's elections.
The application helps voters get a better understanding of who the candidates are and what they represent. Users rate the opinions of candidates on topical issues, and the system uses these to make candidate voting recommendations. It also allows people to cast a virtual vote – resulting in a "live" election poll. Users can then help support their preferred candidate with Facebook promotional options.
The services is being developed by Reality Creating Media and we are now looking for a developer team to build the next version of Shadow Election and a mobile version.
Android mobile application skills and knowledge in the following areas would be preferable:

Hardware: Amazon EC 2 scalable

Architecture: Linux

Database: MySQL

Coding language PHP

Front end: HTML5, Javascript+Ajax, CSS3, HTML

 We are interested in coders who have enjoyed working together in the past on successful projects. We are, however, also interested in individual coders who feel they would be particularly suitable for the project.

The company language is English and we are used to working remotely with partners already in three countries: Finland, USA and Holland.

The product manager will mostly likely be based in Finland and we will use scrum and Lean Startup methods.

Ideally we are looking for people who are highly motivated to help improve democracies around the world, and will bring their own thoughts to the table regarding how to make Shadow Election even better.
