[MediaWiki-l] [JOB] Seeking MediaWiki/PHP+Python coders for open source work.

Karl Fogel
Hi, all.  According to [1], "within reason, it is acceptable" to post MediaWiki-related job openings here (thanks to Reedy for pointing this out in IRC).  I assume that making one posting is "within reason", so here it is:

We have contract work openings for PHP+Python programmers with experience customizing and extending MediaWiki.  This work is open source [2].  Here's a link to the job posting:


And here is the text, for your convenience:

  | We seek software developers to fill contract positions in free
  | software projects for various clients.  Our current need is for PHP
  | and Python coders interested in contributing to projects in the
  | non-profit and philanthropy space.  Familiarity with customizing and
  | extending MediaWiki would be helpful, but is not required.
  | This role is for projects scheduled to last 6 months to a year, with
  | the possibility of follow-on work.  We anticipate 15-20 hours per
  | week of work, though that might change as we take on new projects.
  | If interested, please email jobs {_AT_} opentechstrategies.com.
  | OTS is based in Chicago and New York.  We are open to remote
  | applicants (within 3 hours of either U.S. Central or U.S. Eastern
  | time zone), and we negotiate rates based on experience and skills.
  | We value having a diverse team and we strongly encourage members of
  | groups that are underrepresented in software development to apply.
  | Open Tech Strategies is committed to free software philosophically
  | and as a business strategy.  We work in public repositories, using
  | free and open source tools.  If you have a visible open source
  | profile -- an account on a project hosting site, a trail of
  | participation in some projects, etc -- please mention it in your
  | email, CV, or résumé.

If you are interested or know someone who might be, please let us know, and feel free to forward this announcement to wherever you think it would be appropriate.

Best regards,
-Karl Fogel
