Full-Stack Open Source Web Application Developer Part-time

Published at 2022-04-22 - Viewed: 2541 times - Open Tech Strategies, LLC in United States

Open Tech Strategies (OTS) is seeking contract developers to assist with developing and deploying open source web-based applications to clients. This includes both custom-written software (often based on Django/Wagtail or other web frameworks) and contribution to existing projects (including but not limited to Hypha -- see Based on past experience, we estimate a time commitment of approximately 20-25 hours per week, but are flexible and open to discussing commitments higher or lower than that.

This position involves interacting directly with our clients, with support and direction from OTS management. It also involves publishing new open source software and working closely with upstream open source projects — we send our changes upstream whenever we can, keeping our customer-specific delta (which is still open source) as small as possible at all times.

Our projects involve both front-end and back-end coding. If you are experienced in one of those but not the other, we encourage you to apply anyway. You will be part of a team and there will be opportunities to learn new skills.

While this position is remote, applicants must be within 3 hours of either the U.S. Central or U.S. Eastern time zones, as this work involves regular real-time communications with the OTS team and the customers' teams. Contractors in or near Chicago, Illinois have the option of coming in to our downtown office to work; we will provide desk space, connectivity, and friendly faces — some of which even belong to members of our team.

OTS negotiates rates based on experience and skills. We value having a diverse team and strongly encourage members of groups that are underrepresented in software technology to apply.

OTS is committed to open source philosophically and as a business strategy. We work in public repositories using open source tools. If you have a visible open source profile — accounts on major open source project hosting sites, a trail of participation in some open source projects, etc. — please mention it when submitting your qualifications.

If you are interested in this position, please email a cover letter, your CV or résumé, and any additional qualifications to jobs{_AT_}
