Nov 30, 2023 - Knowledge Futures is hiring a remote Senior Software Engineer, PubPub. 📍Location: USA.
Accepting applications until Friday, December 15, 2023.
Knowledge Futures is hiring a software developer to help us develop the next phase of PubPub, a collaborative and open publishing tool for the academic web. We’re looking for someone with strong full-stack web development skills. You’ll get to experiment and make significant contributions to product direction. We will pay you competitively, let you work a 4-day, 32-hour week from wherever you want, and take you and your ideas seriously. Join us!
Knowledge Futures, founded as a partnership between the MIT Press and the MIT Media Lab, is a non-profit institution that builds public digital infrastructure that enables communities to publish documents and data more effectively.
PubPub is an open-source publishing tool used by thousands of journals, conferences, books, and other diverse types of communities. At its heart, it features a collaborative document editor with strong support for academic standards. Layered on top are features for discussion and organization. In the works are powerful tools for editorial review and enabling small and large communities to thrive on PubPub. Underlying all of this is a belief that better publishing tools can help researchers focus on doing the best work of their lives, rather than adapting their work to the whims of rent-seekers and gatekeepers.
You must be legally authorized to work in the United States to apply for this role.
We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds with diverse skillsets. If you have significant personal experience or engagement with low-income communities, international communities, or fields and languages that are underrepresented in academia, scholarly publishing, or open data, we strongly encourage you to apply.
This job description is intended to be a guidepost, not a checklist. If you feel like you could do a great job in this role, even if you don’t exactly meet every qualification, please consider applying. And if you’re still hesitant after reading this bold text, send us a short note anyway with any questions you have about qualifications.
The salary for this position is $152,377 (Engineering Team, level 3) plus benefits. In late 2022 we implemented a no-negotiation salary system designed to increase fairness and transparency and reduce bias in compensation by paying the same salary in each function/level across the company regardless of location or tenure. We base starting salaries on industry medians in New York City (no matter where you're based), automatically adjust twice per year to account for cost of living so you don't need to demand raises or seek offers elsewhere, and provide clear pathways for promotion with large compensation increases (while not requiring you to seek promotion to stay in good standing and keep up with inflation/industry trends).
