Senior PHP Coder who will create expressive, beautiful syntax that makes our mobile apps run smoothly
You would be helping us out with the following:
- Work on our Map Your City mobile iOS & Android apps, API and Backend
- Code the backend that talks to our native mobile apps—from a Laravel development environment.
- Make sure our backend and mobile apps understand each other fluently.
Map Your City helps everyone to map & tell their stories at the places that matter to them. We want to bring people closer to their cities and towns again and connected to their community. We exist for our users and design for them. We believe in creating together and the power of small to create a crowd. We want to be honest and clear on everything we do and stand for.
A great team is key to all of this
As a team, we work closely together. Learning from each other. Timezones do not prove to be a hindrance as we continually reach out. Map Your City is always “on”, as our users are too.
We strive for the very best and continually ask feedback from our users to build the product they love even better.
Building what never existed before
We face a lot of challenges, like: designing a mobile app and platform that puts the power of creating personal location based experiences in the hands of our users and to be able to ensure platform consistency. Creating a platform where free users keep finding valuable experiences and our premium membership plans continue to attract those storytellers. Delivering personal experiences without intruding private space.
Learning by doing
We are finding out on our journey. We deliberately operate this way, learning from mistakes, improving in next steps, in productdesign, development, businessmodel…in all.
When you tread new paths there are no obvious solutions for the problems we face, but that is what we love doing. And we hope you do too.

You can work remote. And although your are able to combine it with your other jobs as a freelancer — the job should not be conflicting with your work for other competing brands in our niche however. In case you’re the right candidate, we’re sure we will come to agreement on terms of contract.
