Get paid to write open-source software

Do you want to work on software used by billions around the world? Do you believe in the goals of the open-source software community? This team wants to hear from you.

You will be working alongside similarly enthusiastic and highly skilled developers building software with open-source projects and making important contributions to the open-source community. You could be working on improvements to WebKit, or building new Linux kernel driver, or one of countless other projects this team tackles, all of them deeply technical.


  • Knowledge and interest in developing systems level software such as kernel drivers, web rendering engines, display servers, or A/V libraries.
  • Demonstrable and significant contributions to open-source projects. This includes engagement with the community and understanding of open-source development methodologies not just code commits.
  • High level of skill in C. Additional knowledge of Rust would be beneficial.
  • A Computer Science degree or similar experience.

You will be working in a globally diverse team, so experience and comfort with remote working along with a high level of written and verbal communication skills are essential for this role.

Alongside the competitive salary, flexible working hours, private medical insurance, and dedicated time to spend on community projects are on offer for the right candidate. This team will also consider candidates who wish to work part-time 3-4 days per week. Although you will be joining a global team, you need to be located somewhere in the UK and have full rights to work in the UK without time limits to be considered for this role.
