FLO

Calling all developers!

Recommended Posts

FLO is working on some new, exciting, top secret products and we need a developer to help us as poor Grant is too busy and a little allergic to Windows these days!

We need someone capable of developing hardware drivers for Windows, OSX and Linux as well as cross platform software applications to interface with the hardware and corresponding ASCOM and INDI drivers.

Ideally we are looking for someone from within the astronomy community who perhaps already contributes to open source astronomy projects and has experience with ASCOM and INDI. Someone who can help us with this and a number of other astronomy related projects we are looking to develop over the coming years. 

Timing is flexible so would suit somebody tinkering in evenings and weekends looking to earn some extra cash for astro goodies 🙂 

If you fit the bill, please get in touch at jointheteam@firstlightoptics.com with some information about your experience and knowledge.

A little bump on this :)

We've had a number of people get in touch but we are really looking for one person who can do everything required and we really want somebody with existing experience in ASCOM / INDI so we can lean on their knowledge and expertise.

I think that most developers concentrate on either ASCOM/Windows or INDI/Linux. Anyone who can do both is probably in high demand (and already tied up) in the astro industry. Wouldn't it be more realistic to divide this into two offerings? Just a speculation.
