About Luke W

Founder or co-founder of 4 startups in technology and online media, with 2 exits.

Currently developing a new concept in online opinion, social networking, and data - a website & app called 'Pollstation'.

I am on the lookout for a creative, web-familiar, politically engaged, content editor for the UK site. The ideal candidate would be a recent graduate with energy, intelligence, skill, and purpose who's keen to be exposed to all aspects of running a dynamic high risk/reward startup. Package (£/equity) subject to negotiation, time etc.

Contact me for more information.
