Overview

Hi there,

Do you want to use tech for good? Welcome to Super Being Labs and we tackle social challenges through our work. We’ve got a great core team, with our CTO having over 16 years of development experience across a range of companies and now we’re looking to grow and are looking for a front-end dev to work with us – either as a freelancer, on contract or full-time – we’re super flexible (you can work from our office on the Strand or work remotely).

If that sounds like something that takes your fancy, we’d love to meet if you have time? Or can Skype?

Many thanks,

Darshan
(Founder)
