We are hiring!

We’re looking to hire a full-time, remote, contract developer to join our team building open-source software for researchers. If you love the AGPL and know JavaScript, then come work with us on Tropy, a beautiful Electron app built with React, SQLite, and WebGL. Tropy is not out to disrupt industries, transform markets, or change the world: it simply wants to be an elegant solution to research entropy. To help us achieve this goal, you’ll work closely with our lead developer and product designer, who will encourage you to focus on the areas that interest you most, and help you to build new skills. If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you. Please send a cover letter and résumé to jobs@tropy.org.



Depending on what part of Tropy you’ll be working on, these skills and interests might help you hit the ground running:

About Us

The Tropy team is currently based in Vienna, Luxembourg, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC; the project itself is hosted by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, the lab at George Mason University which also created Zotero and Omeka, and the Luxembourg Center for Contemporary and Digital History. We are a small, progressive team and we like to get stuff done without any bureaucratic overhead; everyone around here adds their own unique voice and you might learn unexpected things about the slurve, labyrinths, 90s TV trivia, or 1.d4. The team highly anticipates meeting occasionally in person once again, tracking art nouveau remains of Vienna or discussing the Washington music scene over a slice of pizza, but you’ll primarily be working remotely, communicating regularly with the rest of us and Tropy users via online chat, forums, and on GitHub. We have a highly collaborative yet asynchronous workflow, and you’ll be in control of your own schedule.
