Many developers only find time to contribute to open source projects when they aren’t at work, which is why we feel pretty lucky to be able to work full-time on Brackets (and get paid by Adobe to do so). But, as our backlog clearly illustrates, we have a ton of work ahead of us. So much work that we are looking for another full time engineer to join the project. If you are passionate about building tools for the open web, you should consider joining out team.
Here is the quick description of the job and who we’re looking for:
You will be joining a high performing agile team that collaborates and works together across all aspects of the product. When you aren’t working on our own ideas, you will be helping the community with theirs. The Brackets team is also an active participant in community. Whether it be on IRC, a mailing list or traveling to speak at an event, you will be constantly learning and in turn sharing what you’ve learned. This job is part research, part development and part evangelism.
The Brackets team is primarily located in San Francisco and San Diego, CA. We’re expecting our new team member will work out of our San Francisco office, but we are willing to explore remote options for the right candidate. We work closely with the PhoneGap, Shadow, Edge and Web Platform team, also based in San Francisco, so you’ll be exposed to a lot of different projects (never a dull moment).
As the description above mentions, we are trying to build something new. Brackets isn’t about rebuilding old ideas with new technology. It’s about new ideas and new approaches that help push tooling on the web forward. If this sounds like something you care about, please check out the full description and apply today!
Oh yeah, while developers at Adobe do hold the prestigious title of “Computer Scientist”, lab coats in the office are completely optional.
