I'm looking for a web developer to help me build and maintain TravelMap - a blogging platform that allows you to create a travel blog centered on an interactive map.

I launched the platform in 2014 as a side-project. 2 years later, I switched to working full-time on it and hired Clara who's taking care of Marketing and Communications (in English). As TravelMap keeps growing, I need a web developer I can rely on to share the development responsibilities.

So it's a very small team and it will be a long-term mission with a lot of room for autonomy and innovativeness.

We'll be working on-site for the first month in a co-working space in Saint-Etienne or Lyon. Then you'll be able to work remotely in your own time, within an EU timezone, with occasional in-person meetings.

You can take any time off if you need to go travelling or else as long as you give us some notice in advance.

Starting as soon as possible, ideally September 2021.
