App. developer job. Full-time / part-time. Salary £29,799 to £38,832.

I’m looking for a full-stack and mobile application developer to work with my team to develop a battery of computerised tests which index cognitive ability and
manual dexterity. Ideally I’m looking for someone to start asap. and work full-time for 9 months. However, there is a lot of flexibility, so this job can be taken on a part-time basis. The starting salary is normally in the range of £29,799 to £38,832 depending on skills and experience. There is also the possibility of sub-contracting this job to a team/company so if you, or your team, are interested let me know.

Please get in touch if you’d like more details! My email is j.l.cook@bham.ac.uk.
