Super Psyched Developer and Co-Founder

at uts in London

Creating engaging tools & content for investigative approaches to language learning.

[ The goal ]

  • To create a well focused, but unique technological offering to augment the learning experience, and to complement the services already at the learner’s disposal.

[ What will this actually be? ]

  • A collaborative online environment rich with professional and user generated content used for the purposes of language learning.

  • Web & Mobile applications, based on real language contexts, leveraging clever algorithms to deliver highly engaging learning activities.

[ Immediate objectives ]

  • Create some prototype mobile applications to demonstrate the vision to potential investors. And to generate funding itself through paid-for iOS/Android/… applications.

  • Construct the backend datastore/ algorithms/ and API.

[ Technologies ]

Mobile apps – The demands of the application require fairly low level control thus we will go `native`! The chosen development path is to use Nokia Qt/QML – allowing C++ to be used where needed but benefiting from rapid Javascript based UI development.

The goal is to have a single code base for the mobile applications – “each platform as separate project” is not a great workflow, but may suffice for quick prototypes.

For the backend – MongoDB for the datastore and Node.js for cloud and web services.

[ Current state of the project ]

  • Development of prototypes as a means for generating interest and for evaluating the concept.

  • Applying for startup incubators.

[ Unpaid but equity to be shared ]

A co-founder agreeing to take on the risk and join the development team will be rewarded with a significant stake in the business.

[ What are we looking for in a co-founder ]

  • Technical expertise – ideally a recent graduate of Computer Science
  • ability to take on diverse tasks
  • Keen entrepreneurial spirit
  • Availability to work unpaid in the initial phase
  • Based in London
