    • DevOps operations and development of related automation software on the free software project Open edX. The project is used by and in part developed by organizations like MIT, Harvard, McKinsey, and others, so you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to projects that are widely used and to be part of a thriving open source educational community. See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances.

      We are looking for experienced DevOps specialists, to help improve and scale our infrastructure. We host many instances of Open edX, and have developed open source automation software based on OpenStack and Python/Django to scale it, and allow users to spin their own instance by themselves. We are looking to refactor some of its components, including moving to Terraform and Packer, as well as supporting additional platforms such as AWS.

      The Open edX platform itself is a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture. You would also work on different clients contracts using the platform, which can include both DevOps operations and fullstack Python/Django/JS development. The clients list/references include Harvard, MIT, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. 

      Most of your work is published as free software (Open edX is released under the AGPL license, which requires clients to release modifications under the same license), and you would also contribute to the free software project, pushing most of your developments upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation or help on mailing-lists.

      We welcome applicants of all genders and ethnicities.

      Basic requirements

      - Databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL

      - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

      - Experience with unit testing

      - You feel comfortable working in a Linux environment, specifically Debian or Ubuntu

      - Experience with contributing to free software projects, and communicating within a free software community

      Additional skills

      You would have to work with tasks from the following categories, but you would be able to pick up the skills on the job if you don't master this yet:

      - Experience with Python web frameworks, specifically Django

      - 3+ years of HTML, Javascript, and CSS (experience with React is a big plus!)

      - RabbitMQ, Redis & Elasticsearch

      - git source control

      - Mobile development (iOS and/or Android)

      - Managing clients & projects from beginning to completion (senior developer)

      - Public speaking at conferences (you would present a talk every year at the Open edX Con)

      About OpenCraft

      We are a team of twenty developers, all working remotely from Europe, North & South America, Asia & Australia. You would arrive at a critical moment, as we scale up to handle increasing demand from clients on the edX platform. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects. This is a full time position, were you would be able to work remotely from anywhere you want, as long as you have a good internet connexion. : )
