We need a part-time programmer to start ASAP on making changes/ building from existing SAM Animation (www.samanimation.com) a stop-motion animation software developed from a $500K grant at Tufts University. We have licensed the software from Tufts, and after piloting it in schools over the last 6-months there are specific changes that need to be made to make it a reliable, robust product to roll-out on a massive scale.
The sky is the limit on where this initial development effort can go...if the programmer is a good fit for the company, we are looking at web-based platform, community, and applications ... all around engaging kids (and even adults!) on the simplest, most intuitive method of using a camera & expressing your ideas!
Initial contract will be part-time and project-based work, with options to extend to full-time.
All applicants need to be very passionate about K-12 education and getting kids excited and engaged in learning science and math.
