Wikispaces Software Engineer
Wikispaces.com is looking for a software engineer to build and scale our quickly-growing web application.

This position is full time.
This position is in San Francisco.

We’re a small team working on a big site, and we’re looking for a passionate engineer to dive in with us. Wikispaces is a wiki host, providing easy to use wikis for a wide audience. There’s lots to do: designing and building new parts of the application, working on our front-end javascript and AJAX, squeezing a few more requests/second out of our web heads, working on our replicated databases and file storage. We don’t like big specifications or heavy planning processes; instead, we work on small projects, ship code frequently, and write lots of tests. We’re built on lighttpd, PHP, MySQL, python, javascript.

I guess there’s still heaps of those special Australian-only Green Card (E-3) visas that allow to work in the U.S. left.

  1. Hi Laurel,

    You’re right, the visa situation makes it really easy for Australians to work in the US right now. I also tend to think Australia produces really great software talent.

    Thanks for highlighting the job. If you have any other ideas about how we can reach Australian software engineers, let us know.

  2. Adam, I’ll make a deal with you.

    Throw some bucks in BarCampSydney3 – http://www.barcampsydney.org/ – and I’ll Facebook and Twitter and whatever out to the BarCampers the job. I’ve only got about 700 followers on Twitter and under 400 on Facebook but they are ALL social network ppl. As you would know, companies can’t advertise on Barcamp itself (luckily I think it’s Microsoft that’s sponsoring some of it) but there’s no reason we can’t pass it out to the Barcampers in another way. The developers/engineers organising it are struggling a little with covering all costs and putting in personal dosh themselves.

    The dude to talk to is ajay.ranipeta (at) gmail.com – quite a clever clogs engineer himself.

    But get your skates on, Barcamp is THIS weekend. 😛

    *disclaimer: I have nothing to do with BarCamp. I’m disorganised at even unOrganising. But I like attending. 🙂
