We are Lazy Dog Software Ltd, a Leeds based software startup consisting of Stuart Phillips (Full time mortgage broker) and Mark Spilsbury (Full time Software Director). Answering a need for better technology products in the UK mortgage industry, we developed a tool to calculate maximum loans for all 50 lenders in one go. We've built the app and its selling succsesfully but we are channeling all profits back into marketing advertising and further development, and so continue with our day jobs. We are looking for someone in the early stages of a degree, with a good knowledge of web technologies including PHP, Python, Managing databases and API's to help support and build out some of the features that we are unable to dedicate time to. We need to build a backoffice that will allow us to administer the software, for instance building a simple admin area to amend the user database, correct the scripts that the software runs on, written in python, and to help develop the product in general. Experience in managing projects isnt essential as clear guidance and briefs will be provided. We know what needs to be done and what it should look like but are struggling to find the time to get to the non essential aspects of the product! Experience and confidence in dealing with end users by email would also be an advantage, although not essential and something we can discuss. Front end design skills would also be helpful, but again not essential. Knowledge of the UK Mortgage market isnt essential, but will be something you will likely come to understand Projects should be varied, can be done from home/uni as and when to fit around your schedule, hewever we have offices in Leeds near the Markets that you can use or where we can meet to discuss things. We are also happy to give you credit toward any portfolio's, CV's, etc that might be useful in the future. Hours are likely to be lower to begin with, starting at around 5-10 hours a week, but could increase later as we increase user numbers.
