Our recent projects include the central civic participation platform for the state of Berlin meinBerlin , the European idea challenge Civic Europe and adhocracy+ , our new platform to make digital democracy easy for everyone.
More info on our projects can be found on our website . The code of our projects can be obtained via GitHub and a cookie-cutter template to get started with our Open Source participation software, Adhocracy, is available via GitHub as well
Starting March 15th, 2021, we are looking for a Frontend Developer to join our team.
As a Frontend Developer you work closely along with the other three developers, with our Scrum Master, the project managers and our designer in our agile Scrum process to create Open Source software for e-participation processes. The following tasks are among your responsibilities:
Who we are looking for
Why should you work with us?
We work for society: At Liquid Democracy you work at a non-profit which wants to further social change and strives to find innovative answers to pressing political questions.
Democracy at work: We value democratic innovation not only in our projects but also in our internal processes. All team members decide on questions concerning the team together in our weekly plenary.
Healthy communication: We think a good work environment needs more than modern computers and flexible working hours (we have those as well). To have healthy and productive discussions, we use and experiment with ideas such as non-violent communication and systemic consensus finding.
How to apply
We look forward to your digital application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your earliest possible start date and a link to some previous projects on GitHub or elsewhere. Please note: A cover letter explaining your motivation is much more important to us than your CV and certificates. Applications and any questions can be directed to Moritz. The deadline for applications is February 26th, 2021.
We encourage you to apply no matter your ethnicity, gender, age or social background. We share the view that the tech world needs to become more diverse and we actively work towards this goal. This starts with using gender-sensitive language in all our communication and continues with educating ourselves about topics such as diversity, inclusion and anti-racism and acting on these ideas. We have a long way to go, but we are working on it.
