- We look for a volunteer PHP developer


WeCitizens is an independent civil society organization (CSO) established in Brussels, in 2012, wanting to reduce the break between the citizen and politics. With our transparency tools we contribute to better democracy & governance.

We have produced five vote advice applications (VAA) in 2014 in Belgium for EU and other elections. In 2016 we started publishing an Index of transparency of political parties. In 2015, we put online PoliticiansOnline, which is the biggest publicly available database about Belgian politicians. It is interactive and will be participative.

WeCitizens is politically impartial. We have around 25.000 readers of our newsletter (in French and Dutch).

Your task

For six years, different teams of developers have been involved. WeCitizens has following active internet tools:

  • Our website, presently under WordPress
  • Our newsletter, which uses the WordPress plugin Mailster
  • The political database, PoliticiansOnline.be whose stack is MySQL/PHP/JQuery/CSS.

We need lots of new developments of PoliticiansOnline and we rely on you to produce them.

Your profile

  • University computer scientist, or graduate (associate) with three years of professional experience in software production.
  • You can commit to work 8 h/month, or more, on a voluntary basis, for a sufficiently long time period (not less than one year).
  • Better if you are fan of democracy, good governance, citizenship education.
