      About Us

      We're building a nationwide network of crowdsourced commercial real estate databases. Our wild start-up days are behind us – we're all grown up and profitable now with a 14-year track record and tens of thousands of clients that love us.

      Within our small team, you'll be doing a little bit of everything:

      • Building and maintaining server-side frameworks and APIs
      • Adding and refining front-end features (JSP, JavaScript, JQuery, HTML5)
      • If you're into it, configuring and managing parts of our stack (JBoss/Wildfly, MySQL, MongoDB, ElasticSearch/ELK, salt)

      We're not dogmatic about our tools/technologies – we use whatever best suits the task at hand. 

      About You

      Like us, you value stability, work/life balance, group decisions, and working with people that are good-natured, interesting, hard-working, and self-motivated.

      You're a quick study, have some experience using Java to build web applications, and aren't afraid of the command line.

      Catylist is for you if...

      • You hate the corporate bureaucracy of a big company.
      • You're so over the chaos and uncertainty of a start-up. You like having reasonable hours and knowing that your job will be around next week.
      • Consulting/freelance is not your bag. You prefer to maintain and improve the products you've built rather than hand them off and move on.

      This is a full-time, 40 hours per week, remote, W2 position with benefits (health/dental/vision/401k).

      When applying, please take some time and explain why you're a fit for our team, and please include your resume, github link, and anything else that will help us understand how awesome you are.

    • 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

      - DevOps experience, especially on Debian/Ubuntu servers, Terraform, Vault, Packer, Prometheus, ELK, Docker. We are building a modern infrastructure and having a strong DevOps presence on top of core software engineering skills is a big plus with us.

      - Cloud computing, like AWS or OpenStack

      - Databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL

      - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

      - 3+ years working with Python

      - 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. : )
