The non-profit Participatory Culture Foundation, is currently seeking a Software Developer. PCF is home to Miro, the free and open video player; Universal Subtitles, a collaborative project to caption and translate videos around the world.
We are a non-profit organization with a team that rivals the talent and quality of any for-profit software company in the world. Our software is used by millions of people every month. Are you doing amazing work for a company that you don't really believe in? Quit your job and work for us. Seriously.
We're looking for an outstanding programmer who can work independently, communicate well, and step back from the code to contemplate improvements to program architecture or our development process. This is a full-time position working on Miro related projects. We are particularly interested in, but are not limiting our search to developers with GTK/GStreamer experience or Windows desktop development experience.
Miro presents an exciting real world challenge: creating cross platform desktop software that interacts with a heterogeneous set of third party libraries and provides an easy to use interface on each platform. We build on existing free peer-to-peer and media libraries where we can.
Miro is mostly written in Python, so solid understanding of Python or a similar dynamic language is a must. A solid understanding of C and C++ is also a requirement. Above all, we are looking for applicants who are very smart, agile, and believe in our mission.
TO APPLY: Send a short note about why you're interested in working with us along with a resume to jobs[at]pculture.org. We are hoping to hire soon, so please apply promptly if you are interested in the position.
We also encourage applicants to consider fixing a couple Miro bugs and submitting the patches so that we can see your work and your ability to work on our codebase. A good place to start is the 'bitesized' bug list on the CommunityProjects page.
