Applications Developer / Development Consultant
We are looking for up to two Applications Development consultants, new to Canada, interested in helping us brainstorm and scope out a strategy to build an app for our interactive creative practice.
Initially, this engagement will be for 3-4 consultation sessions to share ideas and identify what is needed in terms of resources and information. Possibility of extension, pending funding results.
The ideal candidates will have experience building apps for creative projects, physical activity and mental health. Examples of apps that are exciting to us include: Pause, Barre, 7 Min Workout, Wildfulness, myNoise, Drops. We are open to different approaches, and would love to hear from you about what wellness or creativity apps inspire you.
You will, of course, have the appropriate technical background, including:
- Objective-C or Swift
- Good sense of User experience design (UX) and User interface design (UI)
- Strong ethics and know-how in cybersecurity
- Experience releasing apps to Apple App Store

Experience as a consultant is not necessary. And your English need not be perfect. We like working with multilingual, international people! Curiosity and a kind of joy for the quirks of life are appreciated.
Required: Openness to new ideas, flexibility, ability to work well remotely, some experience in analytics, and have very strong organizational and time management skills.
Thank you for your interest!
