Junior Web Developer

Copass is looking for junior web developers to work hand in hand with our CTO. Now boarding !


Context

A new way to live and work is emerging. while information technologies enable us to work from virtually anywhere at anytime, there has never been such a need for physical places and in real life communities. Coworking, fablabs, hacker spaces, bio hacker spaces, maker spaces and other likeminded spaces have been developing at high speed these last few years, laying down the infrastructure for a completely new way of creating value.

Hundreds of thousands of people have already been impacted by this movement and we want to take the movement one step further. We want to connect collaborative spaces and people to enable this new type of workers to work from any of the spaces of the network with one single membership.

To do that, we’re building a platform. More than 100 spaces have already joined Copass and a bunch of people now waiting for us to launch the product. We launched our private alpha a few weeks ago and are now geared towards growth. We will open the platform to the public in the coming weeks and possibly release a mobile application later on. Our platform has been developed using Ruby on rails.

We are looking for an enthusiastic full-stack junior developer to support our CTO on a daily basis. You will join our team in Paris, and will work in one of the most famous coworking space in the city: Mutinerie.
