Outstanding SaaS and web architect/ project manager


Design and implement scalable SaaS platforms

Ideally Sydney but we may be open to exceptional candidates from anywhere

Flexible, likely 1-2 days per week

We are planning a number of SaaS and other web development projects, and are looking for one or more people who can help establish project architectures and manage external developers in running web projects.

The projects include a distributed work platform, reputation systems, platforms for news and social media filtering based on a combination of human and algorithmic filtering, workflow engines, and value-add marketplaces.
