Web Developer Qwant Junior – PHP / JS

Born from an audacious challenge, Qwant is the first genuine European search engine.

What makes us unique is that we don’t track users, we know nothing about each of them, and still, we aim to help them find what they are looking for on the Internet.

Based on the idea that kids also have access to the Internet, we have created Qwant Junior, the only search engine for children. We eliminate inappropriate content and bring forward educational and safe resources so that kids can discover, learn and have fun in a safer digital world.

Ambitious, isn’t it?

Today, we are looking for new talents to help us bring Qwant Junior to the next level and make it the default entry point on the Internet for kids and teens.

If you think kids have access to the Internet no matter what, and it is our responsibility to offer them tools for a more protecting and nurturing environment, then you most probably need to consider joining us.
If you want your work to actually mean something and make a difference, if you think that privacy matters even when you have “nothing to hide”, if you like to be challenged and you are not afraid of failure, then we might have a few things in common.
