I hope this is not regarded as SPAM or similar and if so, please forgive me and let me know, so I will delete it.

It is really hard to find Meteor developers in Germany over the regular channels so I am in hope, that someone here might be interested :necktie:


We are looking for a full stack developer at University of Bremen. Our working group is part of the research lab „Media Education | Educational Media“ at ZeMKI, the centre for media, communication and information research (https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/zemki/about-zemki/).

We are developing a next-generation open educational software for use in live classroom teaching (think a combination of Mentimeter, ClassCraft and more).

Your duties in the project will include:

  • Development of a next-gen classroom interaction system built on top of the Meteor framework (http://meteor.com)
  • Gather and analyze requirements in cooperation with the other project members and partners. Based on these requirements a conceptual strategy will be formed for integrating the software in e-assessment contexts
  • Testing and documenting the code, versioning and collaboration using git
  • Maintain the software repository and steward the open source development with other contributors

We provide

  • Comprehensive mentoring support to become acquainted with the Meteor framework and our software architecture
  • Opportunities to extend your skills and check out new technologies and packages
  • Integration into an open and welcoming team
  • Meaningful development work in an open source project aiming to improve education
  • Flexible work hours and partial home office opportunities
  • Improving your developer profiles on GitHub and StackOverflow
  • New speedy hardware for short build times

Your profile

  • Important: As the employer is the German federal ministry of education and science, you need to own either a German citizenship, permanent residentship or a working visa with a full time working permission already at the time of the application and an official resident address in Germany.
  • Either a completed Bachelor Degree or Master Degree in Computer Science, Software Development, Informatics, or comparable study program.
  • Experience in object-oriented software development and knowledge about web development concepts (such as HTML/CSS/DOM/JS).
  • Ability to become quickly acquainted with new frameworks and language concepts using (API) documentation.
  • Your English - or - German should be very good both in writing and speaking (C1 or native speaker).

Edits:

  • fixed broken links
  • emphasized on the resident status

Hi Laurent,

thank you for your interest. You will require a working permission full time already at the time of the application.

However, it would be an exceptional circumstance if you own a student visa (at the time of the application) in computer science, digital media or similar studies, where you can work up to 20 hours / week within a research project aside your study program. This is explicitly encouraged as part of promoting students into research practices.

Best Jan
