Description
You will help develop a website that combines a large global multi-lingual hacker / maker community and a simple robotic sales website. You will work directly with the executive team to refine a concept, workflow and layout of both a front end and back end online community. The CMS we use is Social Engine and it will require a high level of customization involving coding in PHP, HTML5 (desktop / tablet / mobile), CSS, Javascript, using a MySQL Database. The website will have a few static pages, but mostly user-generated content : we call this “Social R&D”, using the addictiveness of Facebook notification to accelerate collaboration ala Wikipedia. Some specific pages like an interactive map will require making a fair use of Google maps API, Facebook API (and more). Some knowledge in Ruby, C++, Python could be handy to connect the website to a fleet of sailing drones in the ocean in real-time (tracking and control system). You will work mostly remotely with CEO Cesar HARADA, COO Gabriella LEVINE (in the USA), Producer Nadege NGUYEN. You will be the community moderator, which means being active and friendly on the forum.
