Join The Brackets Team. We’re Hiring!

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:

We are seeking a talented open source engineer to join our team at Adobe to work on Brackets, a code editor for the modern web developer. We’re building Brackets with JavaScript and other web technologies so that our users can hack on their own tools. MIT-licensed and developed entirely on github, we are creating a fun environment where we can mix our innovation with the community. Brackets is a new and exciting project that is being watched by over 5k developers on github today.

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.

You must be someone who is highly engaged, motivated and excels at critical thinking and problem solving. You’re a JavaScript expert or have the goal to become one.  We’re treading new territory in building an application that spans the desktop, cloud and device and we need another world-class engineer who is up for a challenge.

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.
