We're hiring a front end web developer!

Our Mission :

Imagination for People (I4P) is an open-source internet platform devoted to helping social entrepreneurs all over the world. Basically, we are building online tools to help people who want to change the world for the better. Our activities fall under two umbrellas :

  1. Creating tools to empower social innovators
  2. Creating tools to foster collective intelligence amongst large groups

We are based in Montreal and France and operate at a global scale – if there is an innovative social project somewhere, we want to help it grow. 


Our Clients & Partners :

I4P is currently partnered with the MIT, Open University, European Commission, Ashoka and their network of Changemakers, Purpose, Euclid Network, l’Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, la Fondation pour le Progrès de l’Homme, l’Institut du Nouveau Monde and many other international networks to develop solutions for social innovation.


Our Projects:

Some of the projects you will have the opportunity to work on include creating and developing:

  • An online platform that comprises a "Wikipedia" of social projects
  • A pedagogical web app that helps social entrepreneurs turn their ideas into concrete business plans.
  • Collective intelligence software. This software is going to be used to co-write the European Constitution in 2014.
  • A financial marketplace that will help social entrepreneurs connect with financing. Set to debut in France, we hope to expand this marketplace rapidly to other countries.


Who we’re looking for: You



Because you’re a bilingual self-starter who is interested in social innovation. You like to work with international players, such as MIT and Open University amongst other institutions, and aren’t afraid of working without a supervisor. You have a good knowledge of CSS, SASS and Javascript development, are familiar with thick client REST architectures, and have experience writing Javascript visualizations. Experience with Bakbone.js and Share.js is a bonus.


You will get the opportunity to work on a variety of new projects that I4P is developing as well as new features and upgrades to the current tools.

If you are interested in being a part of helping to make the world a better place, this is the job for you!

We also welcome applications from talented young graduates.


Some more details:

The position is a full time contract beginning end of January 2014. Salary will be based on skills and experience. If you are interested please send you CV to François Burra at francoisburra@imaginationforpeople.org
