GNOME Foundation opens recruitment for further expansion

Orinda, CA.

Today, July 6th 2018, the GNOME Foundation has announced a number of positions it is recruiting for to help drive the GNOME project and Free Software on the desktop. As previously announced, this has been made possible thanks to a generous grant that the Foundation has received, enabling us to accelerate this expansion.

“These positions are key to ensuring that the Foundation remains sustainable and that we are able to support the community in key areas,” said Neil McGovern, Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation. “It is my hope that we can continue to grow the Foundation so that these posts will continue to be funded, but to allow further positions to become available”

The Foundation is currently recruiting for four posts:

  • Development Coordinator
    • This will ensure that we receive sufficient funds to continue our work delivering free software
  • Program Coordinator
    • The Program Coordinator will free up time from those involved in organizational, administrative and logistical problems
  • Devops/Sysadmin
    • The systems and services we run need proper maintenance and care. As Flathub continues to grow, more support is needed to achieve this.
  • GTK+ core developer
    • GTK+ is core to our entire platform. Investing in development and maintenance of this toolkit will benefit the whole GNU/Linux ecosystem.

The Foundation is keen to hear from any person who is interested in applying for one of these posts. Details on how to apply and the application deadlines can be found on the Foundation’s Positions Available page.
