Software Heritage hiring a Paris-based front-end web developer


Full-text repeated below.

Extra info relevant for debian-jobs: the Software Heritage software
stack is entirely Debian-based. The team is formed by many Debian
contributors and contributing upstream---to Debian and other FOSS
projects---is a team best practice.

Software Heritage is hiring: seeking a Paris-based full-time front-end web developer

[Software Heritage](https://www.softwareheritage.org/) is an ambitious
nonprofit, entirely Free/Open Source Software (FOSS) project that aims at
collecting, organizing, preserving for the very long term, and sharing all
publicly available software in source code form, together with the
corresponding complete development history (e.g., from a Version Control
System) where available.  The Software Heritage archive already contains about
3 billion unique source code files and 650 million commits, retrieved from more
than 25 million software projects.

As part of our software sharing mission we are building a web front-end and a
web API that will allow to browse, search, and retrieve software available from
the Software Heritage archive. We are looking for someone to lead this
development effort, integrating it with the ongoing back-end development to
expand the Software Heritage archive.

As lead front-end web developer you'll primarily work with:

* Python 3
* HTML / CSS / JavaScript
* Flask
* jQuery
* Bootstrap
* PostgreSQL

A successful candidate will have strong web-development skills, a working
knowledge of human-computer interaction design, as well as a solid track record
of participation in existing FOSS projects and communities.

All the code will be
[developed openly and released under a FOSS license](https://www.softwareheritage.org/community/developers/),
usually copyleft (GPL3 or AGPL3).

Workplace and salary

The job must be worked on-site at [Inria's Paris

The salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.

* links to any previous related work online.

All materials must be in a free format (such as plain text, PDF, or
