Center for Open Science
Develop exclusively free, open source software in the name of open science.
The Center for Open Science is a funded non-profit startup looking for OSS
developers who are passionate about modern web and API practices (and,
ideally, science) with expertise across the web development stack. Open source
has changed how software development works, and we want to apply the same
principles to the sciences. Everything we develop is exclusively free and open
source (see more on GitHub)
Micro-frameworks (e.g., Flask)
No-SQL Databases (e.g., MongoDB)
We are much more concerned about collaboration, passion, and ability than the
actual technologies you use. We believe that a great developer should be a
great developer in any language. We focus on Python in that Python developers
typically value readability and community, and we are missioned with
connecting and educating the open science and open source communities. The
Python community represents what an effective community should look like and
has strong ties to the sciences. As long as your values are aligned with
those, we want to hear from you.
