Australia’s economy may be officially in recession, but Lateral Economics at least is doing its bit to reduce the effects. In addition to the research assistant Nicholas advertised for earlier this week, we also need someone with some web design and WordPress backend experience for a particular urgent project.
It involves using WordPress for collaborative work with functions having some characteristics of a wiki and some of a blog. It also needs to be easy to use/”intuitive” for non-nerds. It probably doesn’t need any programming work but does require some “tweaking” of WordPress “look and feel” and some use of plugins.
Just as importantly, the timeframe is tight. The project has been long delayed and we really need a functioning, respectable “beta” site within a couple of weeks. You would be working closely with both Nicholas Gruen and Ken Parish on developing and finalising the project.
Remuneration by discussion/negotiation with Nicholas, and applications to Nicholas via the Troppo contact facility (see sidebar).
