Open Source Developer With Java Experience (Full-Time)

> Status: open, as of 2018-03-27

OTS is seeking an open source developer experienced in Java for full-time work.

The project involves extending and improving an open source code base written in Java. It requires someone comfortable writing web applications in Java, including working with test frameworks and managing dependencies. There will be other work beyond this primary project, so we're looking for someone who's willing to learn new skills and programming languages on the fly; we train as needed, and believe that learning on the job is normal.

OTS is based in Chicago, New York, and Minneapolis. Preference will be given to candidates in those cities, but we are open to remote applicants too. We negotiate rates based on experience and skills.

OTS is committed to building a diverse team, and we strongly encourage members of groups that are underrepresented in software development to apply. Please note that due to client requirements this position must be filled by a U.S. citizen.

Open Tech Strategies is committed to open source philosophically and as a business strategy. We work in public repositories, using open source tools. If you have a visible open source profile — an account on a major open source project hosting site, a trail of participation in some open source projects, etc — please mention it in your CV or résumé.

If interested, please email jobs {_AT_} opentechstrategies.com

Open Source Developer With Java, CSS, HTML Experience (Full/Part Time TBD)

> Status: closed (posted 2017-08-22)

This position is now closed.

Open Tech Strategies seeks a contract developer fluent in Java, CSS, and HTML for a short project that could lead to ongoing work.

We are developing an open source Java-based web application that runs under Wildfly. Its user interface is currently generated by legacy code in a somewhat ad hoc manner, and we are looking for a developer to help us move the UI toward a more templatized and configurable structure. The first task is probably to adjust the CSS and then start moving the UI components toward templates. This can be a part-time or full-time role until task is completed; this task may lead to follow-on work as development continues.


The project is free software (Apache-2.0 licensed), operates in the healthcare landscape, and runs with a small core development team (~7 people), though we expect that team to expand as the project continues.

If you are interested, please tell us a little about your background, your expected availability in the next month, and your rates. Also, please give us links to your public work on GitHub or elsewhere. We are committed to open source both philosophically and as a business strategy, and we love to see a history of effective participation in FOSS projects, both in code and in discussion forums such as mailing lists, issue trackers, etc.
