Job Description

We’re searching for an exceptional candidate with very rare skills… we need someone who is an expert in the below technologies… someone who thinks outside the box.

As part of our team, you’ll work on exceptional projects (some with community focus) for our global clients, as well as contributing to our own open source product development. You’ll be kept really busy implementing core product functionality and deploying world-class architectures, but you’ll still need to find time to share ideas across the team, as well as in the greater open source community.

You should be fanatical about clean, concise, readable code.

Aside from the basic requirements, what will set you apart from other candidates is your experience in building open source software used by a larger community, your ability to create practical, scalable, reusable solutions, and your skills in supporting and working with the community.

We want you to bring fresh ideas and skills and teach us something new!
