Well, we knew it couldn't last forever. Our contract developer for Ed100 is moving on to a full-time position at a new firm, and that means we need some help. We're looking for just the right tech magician to help us make it happen. Do you know somebody great?
Here's the job description. Please share it!
Ed100.org is seeking an experienced full-stack software engineer (Laravel, MySQL) to lead development for our small non-profit team. This is a part-time role, about 6-8 predictable but flexible work-at-home daytime hours per week. In this position, you'll run a site that really matters, and have the opportunity to develop some very cool new functionality on a clean, well-documented code base. We have an exciting multi-year vision. You'll make a difference in the improvement of California's education system.
The education system in California is complex and changing. It is too hard for parents, teachers and PTA leaders to learn how to make it work better. Ed100 is a free, bilingual online course, supported by donations and volunteers, that plainly explains how the system works and why it matters.
Our meetings are virtual. We organize and communicate using a combination of Trello, Slack, Google Docs, Photoshop, Screenleap and video/voice conferencing. Our basic work mode is to be predictable and flexible. The structure of the work is usually six contiguous hours per week (during business hours — not weekends/evenings). The workload can vary, with scheduled “sprints”. We have a standing work block each week -- which day works best for you? We start with a voice/video conference, then get into the flow.
Almost everyone working on the content and outreach aspects of this project are long-term volunteers working at least 20 hours a week, motivated by the mission! No, you don't need to be a volunteer to join this project, but we use our resources with care, including time. We are nice to each other.
Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Ed100 Developer Position." Include a brief cover letter or note explaining why the position would be a good fit for you.
Deadline to apply: December 14
