Open Source Contractor

Job description

We are hiring contractors to join our core team. You will have latitude to set your own hours and work flexibly with us. We are hiring for all areas of our product lineup, so if you are experienced in Ruby, JavaScript or mobile development, we welcome you to apply to be a contractor within our project.

We welcome short term arrangements as well as long term commitments.  We are looking for full-time or part-time contractors. We are also open to “temp-to-perm” relationships, allowing both parties (you and DEV) to test the working relationship.  We are very open to transitioning temporary contracts into long-term arrangements.

Contractors are considered core team members and will have access to DEV inter-team communication, but will also generally be provided the full independence of an hourly contractor.


Skills we’d like to see

  • At ease delivering on multiple competing priorities with little supervision
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools (Git)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Motivated, self starter who enjoys working independently but can collaborate with other team members when needed
