Front End Developer (work from home)


We're helping IHTSDO build a web applications team and below is a front end Developer vacancy which may appeal to the coders amongst you - or, possibly for someone you may know. This one's a contract, 'til the end of the year (*may* go permanent).

We've recently relaxed the requirement for Java coding skills; the existing team will now handle these more complex implementation aspects.

We'd be glad to tell you more.
