A senior / experienced web application developer to complete an Application Program Interface (API) for the development of the new homepage / index page of Museum With No Frontiers: http://www.museumwnf.org/. The purpose of this API is to combine and deliver suitable contents from two existing MySQL databases over a RestFUL webservice.

Other such API already exist, the candidate is expected to take over (continue the work on) an existing piece of code set up on Laravel. Re-developing the API from scratch could be accepted as well, provided that the outout pf the API is aligned with existing ones.

Very good knowledge of PHP 7, MySQL 5 and web application development is required. Experience with the Laravel framework is an asset.

Expected time needed to develop the API: one month full time, whereby it is possible to turn into a part time commitment, taking into consideration that the page has to be ready for its online launch by the end of February 2021, including front-end development.

Mission Statement

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) builds bridges through knowledge and understanding. MWNF has 20 years of experience in "rewriting history" beyond narrow nationalist agendas and promoting a new, inclusive vision of history that highlights exchanges and cooperation between cultures in areas as diverse as archaeology, art and culture, economy and social life. Against the backdrop of contemporary global challenges and conflicts, MWNF projects demonstrate the far-reaching potential of cultural heritage in building intercultural bridges in the name of peace.

Description

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) was founded in 1994. Since the beginning, the idea was to overcome any kind of conventional 'boarder' and to create an exhibition space where well-known and unknown, small and large, secure and insecure, rich and poor could not only coexist but would complement each other, generating mutual benefit for all concerned.

The MWNF program is built around two main activities: the MWNF Virtual Museum including different thematic sections and the MWNF travel guides, focusing on little known aspects of cultural heritage.

MWNF is an independent non-profit organization, relying mainly on volunteer resources. The legal seat is established in Vienna, Austria.

The network set up by MWNF includes public and private Partners from all around the world.
