What we do – what you will work on
The call is for people who understand the vision of bringing the idea ownCloud to an enterprise ready level: ownCloud is not only running on individual open source enthusiasts hardware, but also on sites with huge amounts of data like CERN or the Sciebo project, and at large companies who want to work with their data in a secure way.
To provide the best solution for all of them we are looking for:
In this role, you make sure that the infrastructure that we use in ownCloud is up and running. That involves troubleshooting and streamlining existing infrastructure, but also designing new services. If you love virtualization of all kinds and have an eye for security, this position is for you. Of course all this does not only happen behind closed doors, but you will be in contact with the open source community around ownCloud.
For security professionals who would like to take on a high profile open source project. As security is one of the core values of ownCloud, we are looking for somebody who constantly monitors the code flowing in for security problems, is able to find glitches in existing code and handle the bug bounty program. That and more is the task of this high profile position.
For engineers with a passion for good software design and a love for writing code without being code monkeys: In this role you iron the server part of our platform, build new features, work on fixing bugs with the support colleagues and bother the architect with new ideas how to make the thing even better. For this you need to urge to get down and dirty with code, feel yourself comfortable in a team of high profile developers who can teach you things and learn from you.
PHP or what?
Yes, ownCloud is written in PHP, and PHP is the most important, but by far not the only language that we use for the ownCloud platform.
Before you turn your back because of PHP, please think twice. There are a lot of good reasons why we are going with PHP, some of them are named in this blog, but there is more: For example PHP7: With PHP 7 (which can be used with ownCloud) the language has caught up with many criticism it faced before and has done a big leap.
And anyway, the language of a system is not the only thing that is important in a developers life. It is rather how many people use, love and recommend the project and the development processes the team lives. And in all that points, ownCloud is already awesome, and will become even more with your help.
