Responsibilities

Not required, but nice to have:

Working at Burke Software

Burke Software and Consulting is a small company with 10 years of experience working in schools, software development consulting, and open source project development. We're passionate about sustainable open source development.

This role is 100% remote; however, proximity (or willingness to travel) to New York City is preferable for meeting in co-working spaces or on site at client offices (post-covid). You will work with the founder/back-end developer closely once a week when training and mentorship will be provided. You will also work with various contractors and client partners including designers, marketers, and developers. You might have a 3 month stint working every day with a client's larger development team. At other times you will be working more individually on in-house projects. Applicants should be happy in both environments and self motivated during slower times. Working time is very flexible with the exception of attending client meetings and internal co-working sessions on Fridays.

Working over time (past 40 hours) is rare and always compensated. While we're a small in-house team, with our wider business contacts you'll be surrounded by an inclusive community who wants to see you succeed (no brogrammers, please!).

Benefits include paid time off, hardware and snack expenses, paid family leave, and flexible working conditions. We are happy to negotiate non traditional hours to fit your family or specific needs.

Burke Software is fully self funded through contract work and small but growing in-house support/hosting sales.

Salary range between $60-70k.

Contract Visual Designer

Burke Software is looking for a user experience designer and marketer to work on GlitchTip. GlitchTip is an open source error monitoring tool for websites and apps. The contract role would involve working with our front end developer to create prototypes consistent with GlitchTip’s branding and building the brand to attract more users.

Responsibilities

About GlitchTip

Burke Software and Consulting makes revenue from consulting work. We have a deep interest in open source software and building sustainable revenue to fund open source.

GlitchTip is our latest open source project and started about a year ago. It is entirely self funded. We sell SaaS subscriptions and self hosting support plans. We’re trying different things between ads, branding, and talking with our existing users to attempt to sell these subscriptions. Our team is small and consists of a back end developer/founder and front end developer who is more focused on the technical side of website development and used to being handed designs to implement. That’s why we’re looking for someone who has an eye for design and doesn’t mind assisting with marketing, user experience, and graphic design.

Our timing and the nature of this work is very flexible. The total project size would be in the 10-20k range, at least initially. Check-ins would be expected during US Eastern business hours, at least weekly. To discuss, email david@burkesoftware.com.
