Who are we looking for

This is a perfect job if you are someone:

  • Careful with details and quality.
  • Who loves programming.
  • Proactive and self-taught. It’s not necessary to have much working experience, an excellent CV or a college diploma, we’re looking for someone that can learn by itself.
  • With social & communication skills. 50% of the work of a programmer is communicating with others (through Pull Requests, Issues, Meetings, Documentation, etc), so it’s important to have a special sensibility. Currently, we’re having issues with the gender gap, so it’s important to be a feminist.
  • Fluent in English and Spanish.

If you’re worried about making lots of money quickly, this is not the best place to work  ;-)

What we offer

  • Work from home.
  • Flexible hours to organize your schedule according your needs.
  • Full time (35 hours).
  • 1 full day per week for learning new things.
  • Salary between 32k and 36k € per year.
  • To be part of a project for the democratization of society with a global projection. And most important, together with a team of good people.


As “things that we want but we realize will be very difficult to get and we’re open to let it go”.

  • Design skills and accessibility knowledge
  • Catalan language fluency
