    Hi,

    Is there some more information? Is there a specific place, or would I work from at home? Are there any requirements about the used technology? Python? PHP? Java? Any Frameworks, or CMS?

    Just before applying to a job like that, I’d like to know about those things.

    Sincerely

    Christof

    Hi Christof,

    Our HQ is in downtown Mountain View, California. We’d love to have someone local (and it’s a very nice office with gorgeous views), but we are flexible on location. Someone in a nearby timezone (+/- 4h) is strongly preferred, though.

    As for tech stack, users have Macs & PCs, servers run mostly Ubuntu. Some are colocated, others are VPSes. Application-level stack varies (we have a surprising number of services), but I’d say mostly it’s WordPress (PHP) and custom Python services, with the usual Web (HTML/CSS/JS) client-side mix. We also have some more specialized systems like CiviCRM (CRM on top of Drupal).

    Hope that gives you a rough sketch of what we have.
