Paris, France or Iasi, Romania with part-time remote work
The skills we want
We’re looking for web technologists and product designers with experience in privacy engineering. If you already use CryptPad, encrypted messengers, or other similar communication systems to protect your personal data, that knowledge will be an asset. If you use unencrypted platforms and have a good understanding of the personal and societal trade-offs, that will count in your favour as well.
This field is fairly young, so we’re open to any experience you have, not just what you’ve learned in a professional or academic context.
In terms of technical skills, our daily work typically includes:
CSS3 and LESS
SSH, information security, and basic system administration
We’re interested in incorporating skills we don’t already have, so don’t panic if you’re unfamiliar with anything listed above.
Perhaps more important than the technical skills are the so-called soft skills:
Empathizing with users and prioritizing improvements based on their impact
Communicating well within a team (including asking for clarification if your goals are ever unclear)
Managing your time well (we avoid micro-managing and working overtime)
Reasoning about pragmatic security
Consideration of both immediate tasks and long-term goals
What we offer
XWiki SAS has been developing open-source software for the last 15 years, and we rely on the open-source tooling internally. Joining our team means learning how to run a sustainable business while giving away our product for free (without selling user data).
Otherwise you can expect:
A relaxed work environment (in Paris, France or Iasi, Romania) with part-time remote work
or negotiable full-time if relocation is not possible or desireable
To develop portable skills using open-source software
International travel (at our expense) when promoting the company or our projects
Opportunities for advancement, training, and other benefits
The chance to shape the future of an exciting project with your personal view of responsible data handling
To become an expert in privacy-enhancing technologies (we’re literally an award-winning team)
