I posted a couple of months ago and we got a really really good response from a lot of great people so I'm really excited to post again! My name is Martin and I work as a Platform Engineer at Lifesum myself. If you want to formally apply, please do so via the jobs page: http://jobs.lifesum.com/ I'm not the person hiring, but you will join my platform team, and with that in mind, feel free to contact me personally and ask me anything martin.lissmats@lifesum.com :) And if I'm slow to reply or miss to do so, call me out on it! Cheers, and thanks a lot to everyone that applied and contacted me with questions!

I started using Lifesum recently, and it's great!

I have a couple feature requests, and I was wondering if it would be okay to post them here, or email you.
