We are an independent organisation that carries out policy research, statistical

analysis and communication activities on aid and poverty reduction. We work

with donor and partner governments, international agencies, non-government

organisations and the academic community to interpret and communicate aid

and development data, policy and practice.

You are an individual with significant relevant experience in the web development

field, who not only has a passion for technology and a comprehensive

understanding of Web 2.0 tools, but also shares our commitment that absolute

poverty could be eradicated within a generation. You will be responsible for the

delivery of technical services and advice, and will work with others to generate

high quality web content that explains poverty issues and engages people. Whilst

our working style is informal, friendly and flexible you will need to be able to

deliver on time, work with minimal support and see work through to completion.

Martin Burns has been doing this stuff since Netscape 1.0 days. Starting with the communication ends that online media support, he moved back through design, HTML and server-side code. Then he got into running the whole show. These days he's working for these people as a Project Manager, and still thinks (nearly 6 years on) it's a hell of a lot better than working for a dot-com. In his Copious Free Time™, he helps out running a Cloth Nappies online store.

Amongst his favourite things is ZopeDrupal, which he uses to run his personal site. He's starting to (re)gain a sneaking regard for ECMAscript since the arrival of unobtrusive scripting.

He's been a member of since the very early days, a board member, a president, a writer and even contributed a modest amount of template code for the current site. Above all, he likes to do things because it knowingly chooses to do so, rather than randomly stumbling into them. He's also one of the boys and girls who beervolts in the UK, although the arrival of small children in his life have knocked the frequency for 6.

Most likely to ask: Why would a client pay you to do that?

Least likely to ask: Why isn't that navigation frame in Flash?
