Company Freelancers Union
Location Brooklyn, NY (DUMBO)
Title Web Developer

Freelancers Union, a national non-profit organization, represents the needs and concerns of today’s independent workforce through advocacy, information and service. We are passionate about our mission to improve working life for independent workers - a community representing 30% of the U.S workforce. And we’re the people behind all those insurance ads with the beehive that you see on the New York subways.

We are seeking well-rounded and experienced Web Developers to create and maintain various online products and services. We work with a diverse set of technologies and our projects span multiple domains - from health insurance to political action.

You should have experience with:

  • Python, Java or PHP5
  • Javascript, HTML, and CSS
  • Database design and SQL
  • (Obviously!) Developing for the web (working knowledge of HTTP, caching, sessions, etc.)
  • Developing in a Linux environment
  • Administering web servers (specifically Apache or Lighttpd)

It would be great if you also knew about:

  • Application deployment and maintenance with Make, Maven, setuptools, and simple shell scripts
  • Frameworks like web.py, Django, Restlet, and Spring
  • Back-end queuing/messaging - ActiveMQ
  • Progressive enhancement techniques / graceful degradation

Lastly, you'll get special consideration if:

  • you are an electronic toy instrument virtuoso
  • you can make a delicious grilled cheese
  • you have uncanny accuracy with Nerf weapons

To Apply:
If we sound like an organization in which you can develop and thrive, please email your resume with a cover letter including salary requirement to: technojob@freelancersunion.org. Resumes without cover letter/salary requirement will not be considered.

Our offices are located in DUMBO, one stop in Brooklyn off the A, C or F and one block from the East River and Fulton-Ferry State Park.
