We’d love to welcome you to Hoi An and introduce you to life in Central Vietnam! More Than Food is an online magazine we founded back in 2013 in South Africa to bring together real people sharing straight-forward, honest opinions on topics like food, drink, travel, lifestyle and more.
Since then, we’ve grown to over 25 regular contributors based across 5 countries including South Africa, Canada, Vietnam, the UK and the USA, with a few contributors nomadically roaming the world. We’ve built a solid foundation, and are looking to continue to expand our publication globally.
Our vision for More Than Food remains the same – to build a community of actively engaged contributors and readers sharing their stories and experiences.
We’re looking for a dynamic, creative individual to join our team from the ground up. Working together, we’ll make MTF a go-to platform for sharing stories, experiences about what’s hot, hip and happening in any given city.

Live, Work, Play
We have a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home close to the center of Hoi An and located between Old Town and Cue Dai Beach. In exchange for 20 hours of work per week, you will get your own large bedroom and private bathroom and shared access to the lounge, kitchen and common areas. You will be sharing the home with another like-minded traveler working on a health/wellness project here in town. We’re looking for a minimum 2 weeks stay and can accomodate you for up to 3 months.
Hoi An is an amazing city filled with a vibrant arts and music scene, a delicious dining culture for vegetarians and carnivores, great beach bars and an amazing lifestyle. Just recently rated one of the Top 3 Best Beaches to Live on in the World by Thtillist magazine, Hoi An is on the verge of something big and we’d love to show you why we love living here.
Our team has a wealth of experience for travelers to learn from, including how to start your own successful business. Our team includes entrepreneurs in food, wine and travel, a graphic designing, cat loving traveling yogi and is led by a Vietnamese-Canadian digital nomad & yoga teacher. Talk about diversity?! Beyond this, our guests will have the chance to engage with the Vietnamese and international community that live, work and play in Hoi An, Da Nang and Central Vietnam on a daily basis as they perform their tasks.
Interested in joining the team?
We’d love to get to know you! We want to learn more about you, your interests, skills, and what types of projects you’d like to work on. We’ve put together this basic online form to gather some information and are asking you to take 15-20 minutes over the next few days to complete it. This gives us the opportunity to see if working together will be a good fit.
We’re reviewing applications on a rolling basis, so it might take us a few days to get back to you as we try to find the best fit for our projects and schedule. Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
