Miituu products and associated apps have a wide variety of use cases, ranging from enterprise social engagement in large corporations to gathering results and project outcomes in the charity sector.
An exciting opportunity to head the development team at Miituu has arisen, and we are looking for a talented, experienced developer to help us build, improve and expand Miituu and our product suite. The Lead Developer role spans a wide range of platforms, software skills and disciplines, and as such offers a varied and challenging opportunity for personal development and leadership skills within a rapidly growing company environment.

Primarily, development will focus on the Miituu platform, which includes a PHP REST API, a number of web apps, and an Appcelerator Titanium app (iOS / Android / tablets / phones) using native components for both platforms.
The successful candidate should be confident working across a number of projects to deliver consistent, tested and efficient changes, independently or as part of a team. You should be a self starter and an obsessive problem solver, be able to talk through examples / projects / code / product(s) that you have developed and discuss the results achieved.
Ideally, the perfect candidate will also have a keen appetite for pool and be willing to take part in our weekly office pool / 9-ball tournaments (see: http://miituu.com/blog/Miituu-Mega-Pool/). If this is you, all the better!
