Open-source

We are a team of veteran open-source developers, working on educational and community-based projects in an open-first environment – and we are looking for new members. By joining us, you will work full-time on open-source, pushing your changes to free software projects upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation, or help on public forums.
We care deeply about contributing our work upstream. You will see the results of your work reused and recognized across the educational community, increasing access to quality education for everyone, everywhere.

Online education

We are one of the main contributors to the Open edX project, the main open-source MOOC platform created by MIT, Harvard and many other top universities. It powers sites like edX.org, the MIT Open Learning Library, and the national online learning platform for France. We provide development and hosting for institutions like Harvard Medical School, Harvard LabXchange, Cloudera, Autodesk, and several governments. We are not affiliated with edX.org, but we contribute and work with them on various projects.

Remote jobs at OpenCraft

Culture

📨
Asynchronous communication
64 remote teams →

Asynchronous communication - OpenCraft endeavours to make as many of our processes as asynchronous as possible so that no one has to work outside their preferred hours. Our sprint planning process is asynchronous), and while you may occasionally need to meet with a teammate or client outside your preferred time window, it's not the norm.

Generally, discussions happen first asynchronously; if there is really something that can't be efficiently sorted out asynchronously, have a chat or schedule a meeting.

✈️
Company retreats
162 remote teams →

Company retreats - We meet yearly in person at the Open edX Conference (in non-Covid times!), and use the opportunity to meet everyone, along with the rest of the community, and do a team retreat.

⚡️
Agile development
57 remote teams →

Agile development - We use an agile workflow (scrum) based on two-week sprints, but these are coordinated and planned asynchronously.

Open communication

Open communication - Our open-first philosophy keeps us honest and pushes us to bettering ourselves and our community. We believe in contributing back, and finding better ways to collaborate and work. We share the knowledge that we’ve gained instead of hoarding it.

📝
Light meetings
27 remote teams →

Light meetings - We have minimal meetings, as all our communication is centered around asynchronous processes - including sprint planning!

🙇
Autonomy
40 remote teams →

Autonomy - We have built a mostly flat organization, composed of 30 senior developers with a handful of support staff. You will be working with highly competent individuals who take responsibility for their work, and the same will be expected of you.

We belong to self-organized teams, so management doesn’t interfere with our day-to-day responsibilities and leadership is situational. You will lead some projects and join others. You will have a great deal of discretion in the work that you do.

Time tracking
4 remote teams →

Time tracking - When you sit down to work for OpenCraft, start to log immediately. The time spent thinking about what you're actually going to work on, preparing your environment by spawning a devstack, etc. is part of the work (sometime called metawork). It also involves going through mail, chat and forums to check in case something relevant came up. Whatever ticket you start working first is where you should log this time.
