The Message from Me team is looking for a Systems Software Engineer to work on the Message from Me iPad app and our website. We're especially looking for someone with experience in Objective C and Ruby on Rails.
Please share the information below with anyone you know who might be interested!
ABOUT MESSAGE FROM ME
Message from Me allows children in preschools, kindergartens, and day care centers to send picture and audio messages to their parents while they are separated. Children in the program use either a kiosk or an iPad app to send messages. The project is currently in a pilot phase, serving 15 centers. We are in the process of scaling the project to add as many as 70 centers to the program in the coming year. Message from Me needs to update its website to support the added users. Message from Me also needs to improve its iPad interface based on initial responses to the app.
WEB Developer skills and iOS Developer skills needed
The web development responsibilities include updating the website to support additional new centers as well as current centers entering their second year in the program. Updates include adding the following features:
- implementing an archive feature to separate past students and users from active students and users.
- redesigning the user verification page
- creating a center sign up page
* Ruby on Rails 3
iOS Developer skills
The iOS development will include improving the Message from Me iPad app based on pilot testing feedback. This will involve designing new features, and may include redesigning existing interface elements. The developer will need to communicate with teachers at pilot centers to evaluate feedback on the current app and to respond to feedback on new iterations.REQUIRED SKILLS
* Experience with Objective-C and Cocoa, especially for iOS development (published iOS apps a plus)
* Experience with Core Data and threading in Cocoa preferred.
* Strong Object-Oriented Programming skills
* Understanding of design considerations for young children
* Example UI/UX design work
* Strong communication skills
