Gateway Ireland Looking For Web Lead

I got emailed about a short term position going with John McColgan’s Gateway Ireland proposal post-Farmleigh. Might be of interest to someone:

As you may know, a vision for a national online content hub was proposed and this was met with widespread support. This initial proposal has gathered momentum, an Advisory Group was established (it includes Google, RTE and Facebook among others) and a small team has now been put in place to carry out a feasibility study to review all aspects of the project.

That core team is currently seeking a web specialist to work closely with the project chairs, driving the technical and technological aspects of the project as it moves from vision to fully-specified feasibility report to be submitted at the end of May.

Technical Spec for Webmaster/Web Lead

The Gateway Ireland Project, which is currently preparing a feasibility report on a proposed national online content hub for Ireland, is looking for a web visionary to assist us in laying out strategy for its development and design.
As a key advisor of the project team, you will liaise with the project chairs and drive all technological and technical aspects of taking the project from concept to a fully-specified feasibility report to be submitted at the end of May.

Beyond driving direction and mapping out a technical solution, we are looking for someone with strong knowledge of emergent web platforms, social media and above all the passion to think big to develop a game-changing content delivery mechanism.
As the technology lead for the project you will be responsible for:
– Developing the technical vision for the projects feasibly study – we are looking for a best-in class site globally to deliver interactive, rich-media content
– Defining the technology and developer strategy to achieve the content goals of the project
– Gauging the usability of emergent and existing technologies in achieving this outcome
– Costing and risk evaluation of various scenarios that will comprise the feasibility plan
– May be responsible for coordinating and hiring a technical manager / technical or developer resources for the implementation of programming and design (as needed).
