You will be expected to hit the ground running and build on a rapid release and iteration cycle. You will need to work independently and you will be responsible for overall design of the application and ideally to build and drive the choice of implementation/deployment solution. The applications are novel and you will need to be a good problem solver to design solutions which are both powerful, but simple to use.
