SourceHut is hiring one software engineer to work exclusively on free and open source software. SourceHut is an early-stage bootstrapped company, which means that we are a young company that hasn’t taken any outside investments. This gives us greater autonomy and allows us to maintain our principles and ethics without deference to financial concerns. However, we have much less capital to work with, and stringent margins, which may affect you. Our mission: > We are here to make free software better. We will be honest, transparent, and empathetic. We care for our users, and we will not exploit them, and we hope that they will reward our care and diligence with success. At SourceHut, you work on free and open source software, on the projects you want, on the schedule you want, and with the independence of judgement that respects you as an experienced, knowsome engineer. We don't ask you to sign an NDA, or a non-compete, or even to assign us copyright for your work. You will work with smart and supportive peers on meaningful projects for an ethical business and a principled team. However, you receive a meager base salary, which, when combined with optional consulting work, can raise your annual pay to market, but with an inconsistency which may impact your personal financial planning. This is an arrangement which cannot suit everyone, but if it suits you, we’ll be pleased to have you along. We will be making a decision in about 2 weeks time, but the exact start date is negotiable.
