Full time: Django developer with ops & full stack experience

Our main site needs you to lead it! Here's some info about it:

We would like to upgrade the site, and develop minor and major features. We need to upgrade to Python 3 and Django 2.0, and to remove obsolete dependencies and code. In addition to minor features (some visible in the GitHub issues), we would also like to make larger backend updates that improve how data files are modeled, to give more data management flexibility to projects and users.

Don't be afraid to ask questions about the site – the people that wrote and run it are around! But we need an experienced programmer, with solid Django experience, to take this on as their full time work.

Interested? Please email us at jobs@openhumans.org or reach out in our community chatroom.

Part time: iOS developer

Open Humans has taken maintainership of the OpenPaths project – iOS/Android apps that allow individuals to passively record their location via GPS. OpenPaths was first developed by the New York Times and further developed at UCSD.

We received the server and code, but we did not develop it – we need your help to resurrect it!

According to GitHub, the iOS app source is 95% Objective-C and 5% Swift. We would like it to be open source, but can only do this if an experienced developer determines that there are no security concerns in sharing the code.

Part time: Android developer

We received the server and code, but we did not develop it – we need your help to resurrect it!

According to GitHub, the Android app source is 100% Java. We would like it to be open source, but can only do this if an experienced developer determines that there are no security concerns in sharing the code.
