We are looking for a very special individual to start a software development house at our school.

You will help create this environment for them, while supported by the financial resources of our school.

We are looking for a software developer / hacker who is looking to practice his/her craft surrounded by children. These children will see in you their mentor; they will learn from you; they will emulate what you do; they will come up with new ideas for software apps; together you will implement some of them. Subsequently, students interested in business will take these products and market them.

If you were a hacker as a teenager, you know what power you have to impart computing knowledge to other teenagers. If you are a seasoned software developer who wants something different, and you believe that working with youngsters is the answer, then please write to us.
