Why work with us?
If you are an experienced software developer who wants both more flexibility in the schedule for family, personal growth, or health reasons, while still applying your skills in making a positive contribution to the world, then this is the perfect opportunity for you.
You will be building open-source software that distributes clothes, shelter, hygiene items, and food to thousands of refugees and other people in need. Your solutions will give comfort and dignity to people trapped in the most vulnerable of situations, from people relying on their local clothing bank to get their families through tough times, to unaccompanied minors stuck in a refugee camp in Greece, fleeing terrorism and violence in their home country. You will be responsible for driving a new release on a fresh technology stack and prepare our solution for a sustainable future. You will also be involved in supporting our executive board with preparing our organisation for an exciting new program that supports disadvantaged people by integrating graduates of nonprofit coding schools into our development team.
Grow your experience working in distributed, multicultural teams. Work with great people driven by a common purpose to improve the situation of vulnerable people. Learn from experienced founders including an ex-Amazonian and an ex-fintech CTO, who have decided to put the experience they’ve had building amazing products, running systems at scale, and operating in fast-paced, high growth environments to work in the humanitarian sector.
Boxtribute is an open-source, non-profit web application, which makes it easy for organisations to source, store and distribute donated goods to people in need in a fair and dignified way.
As a nonprofit, we are committed to providing access to as many humanitarian actors who need our product as possible at the lowest possible cost, so that it is easier for these organizations to deliver on the great responsibility they bear. Boxtribute is already being used in 6 countries across Europe and the Middle East, including in the field in and . We have ambitious plans to grow to support 25+ operations next year.
Our team is a diverse group of volunteers brought together by a belief that we can and should make a positive impact in the world with the skills we have. Most of us have spent time working in refugee camps in Greece. If you haven’t, don’t worry, but it’s something we can definitely help connect you to if that’s an experience you’re interested in.
What will be my main responsibilities?
Some of the tasks you’ll be expected to manage include:
Familiarizing yourself with the existing code base, using that knowledge to assist the team in sizing up the work then breaking it down into manageable chunks
Drive the development to release our solution on a new technology stack.
Engaging in product development conversations in order to come to good technical decisions, with a demonstrated ability to evaluate, understand and clearly articulate the impact of those decisions
Establishing and upholding best practices of modern software development methodologies (Agile, TDD)
Help the rest of the development team when they are blocked, and support them learn independent problem solving skills.
You will have the active support of our Head of Product (Roanna) and Senior Advisor, Technology (James) for architecture decisions, and would be supported by both Roanna and the Head of Operations (Hans) for team onboarding and management.
How we work
We are an international, all-remote team We deploy using a scaled approach. We rely on Slack, Trello, and regular calls to make things come together :)
Our technology stack
Our partners currently work off of our legacy PHP application. However, we have started the process of planning and building out a new progressive web app based on Python/Flask and ReactJS, which would eventually fully replace the PHP app. The technical design and build-out of this new app is the main initiative that your software development efforts would be contributing to.
We use modern continuous delivery methods, and try to use the best tools for the job, with an eye for the sustainability of our project and financial constraints.
[New App] Python/Flask on the back-end, ReactJS on the front-end
A GraphQL API powered by MySQL / Peewee ORM for the data layer
Google App Engine and Cloud SQL to host for minimal operational overhead
CircleCI for continuous integration
Cypress for browser-based testing
Sentry and Google Stackdriver for error monitoring & tracing
GitHub, Trello and Slack for collaboration
You’ll be motivated by our goal, and have some experience leading diverse engineering teams. Working with a volunteer engineering team will provide some unique challenges and hopefully some fresh perspectives! Hopefully you have:
5+ years experience in software development, including 18+ months of experience with ReactJS or other modern front-end capable of creating a progressive web app
Prior experience in Python, preferably in data analysis and/or web development environments
A successful track record of working with test-driven development (TDD) in an agile environment and shipping production-ready code at a high velocity;
