StudentsMove.com is a London / West-Midlands UK based web start-up. It is based on an earlier version (LiveOut.co.uk) which we have run successfully since 2007, however we have outgrown the site and our plans require a full redesign and redevelopment of the site, rebranding it with many more features than the original.
StudentsMove’s goal is to provide everything a student needs when moving house, from initially finding the perfect house / accommodation, to helping them select the best insurance, and keeping track of their bills throughout the year.
We're looking for a highly capable person who enjoys working with smart, friendly people. As a start-up, our work is challenging, fast-paced, and varied. We want someone who can wear many hats, proactively identify & solve potential problems, and contribute to those around them. We want someone who's good, but even better when they work with a strong team. Are you hard working? Are you hungry for a challenge? Are you fun to work with? Then we'd like to talk to you about StudentsMove.
You'll be risk-taking with the rest of us, working to earn equity, building the company up and ourselves along with it, ideally working closely with the team in the UK, or on a long distance basis. Both Full and Part time positions possible.
We are also looking for freelance developers with the necessary skills to build certain features within the site.
