Please forward as you see fit:


Software developer, Stat.io - Cambridge or REMOTE

Stat.io is building a web application that lets people use open data to improve decision-making. Our vision is to aggregate data from hundreds of open data portals, which can then be accessed in one place. You can see a demo video of the application here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=1BzbW36o1l4

The challenge is to understand millions of datasets from many different sources, from APIs to Excel files, and then provide an interface that allows users to find the data they're interested in.

The main technologies we're using for data processing are Python and MySQL, with a bit of Redis and MongoDB for some simple queueing and logging respectively. We're open to using any technologies if it helps get us closer to our vision. For instance, there's a good chance that alternative data stores to MySQL would be a better fit for the problems we face.

We're looking for a software developer to join us, part-time at a remuneration of £1000/month. If you're interested or have any questions, get in touch: contact@stat.io.
You can find out more about us on our website: http://www.stat.io/
