We're a small, distributed team building creative tools for the next decade on the web – starting with our open source publishing platform, WriteFreely. After releasing our GTK app, we're looking for an experienced Windows desktop developer to help build our next native desktop app.

What you’ll do

In this position, you’ll work closely with our founder to develop a fast, native Windows desktop app based on our GTK app and backed by our command-line utility. You'll take ownership of features on our roadmap and collaborate with developers and users on our Phabricator instance and forum. You’ll respond to bug reports on GitHub related to tasks you’ve worked on, and lend your knowledge to help build this reliable, professional writing tool.


We’re looking for engineers with:

  • Experience building modern Windows desktop apps
  • Good git habits (granular commits, descriptive commit messages)
  • Good self-motivation; comfortable setting and meeting deadlines
  • Good self-direction; comfortable making reasonable design decisions based on your knowledge of the product and business
  • A strong command of English; comfortable communicating clearly and professionally in public (digital) spaces

Though not required, we’d particularly like to hire someone with:

  • Knowledge of UI, UX, and accessibility best practices
  • Experience with various distribution methods for Windows desktop apps
