Programmers sought for dream job on tropical island

If you love turquoise waters, white sand and writing code… then it’s time to dust off your CV.

TWELVE PROGRAMMERS ARE being sought to live on a tropical island for two months and take part in a coding “hackathon”.

Those wishing to be involved in the project in paradise have been asked to submit a proposal outlining what they will work on during their time on the island.

Potential participants living on the as-yet-unnamed island will also have to pass psychological evaluations aimed at proving they can live harmoniously with the others.

Successful applicants will have pay for their own travel to the island and contribute a “largely symbolic” submission fee, reports the BBC.

Come Hack With Us is asking for programmers with “great ideas and motivation”.
