Bitizen is an innovative platform for political participation in the UK. Think of it as a LinkedIn for politics.
We aim to build a digital democracy that offers transparency and fairness by providing the information that helps people understand what is happening in the political world, space to have conversations and compare other views, alongside the tools to consistently hold their leaders to account.
There are 3 team members currently. One with multiple funded start-ups, a senior backend developer and a political data scientist.
What we are looking for
- We want someone who is as passionate as us about solving the problem of poor communication between the public and government, using technology. We want someone who will take this journey with us and see it through to the day real, positive political change happens through our platform.
- Front end design skills. UI, UX and graphic design will be your remit. It is important to us that we can present this product in the easiest to use and most informative way. The back end is complex, so you must be comfortable taking that and designing a fitting front end.
- Front end development skills. Html/CSS development is what we are looking for. Extra points if you are familiar with .net development, as our back-end engineer may need some technical assistance from time to time.
This is an equity position for now. There are plans to grow this into a self-sustaining business, so that won’t be the case forever.
Please write us a short paragraph detailing why you would like this role, your first impressions of our company and some career highlights. Please include a portfolio if possible.
