What's the job? 

Open Social is growing fast. That’s why we are looking for an all-around front-end developer to start on April 1st, 2018.

You’ll be working on our enterprise projects in Drupal 8 and joining our multi-disciplined team that builds large community platforms based on the Open Social software. This means working with user-generated content, tens of thousands users, and high-impact projects for global clients such as Greenpeace, Pachamama, and the United Nations. 

You’ll be challenged and will get the opportunity to make a difference for the company, our customers, and their stakeholders across the globe.

One thing you should know: we're a people-focused organization. We help each other, mentor each other, and continuously work on our careers. 

Who are we? 

Open Social is an open-source platform used to build online communities. Replacing traditional intranets, Open Social fuels bottom-up innovation within organizations. Our customers are ideation, external, NGO's and nonprofits, and innovative companies. 

Early versions of our software have won the Dutch Interactive Awards in 2015. The community platform Greenpeace Greenwire helps 90.000 active Greenpeace volunteers bring about positive change around the world. Our software increased their volunteering by 600% in The Netherlands alone. 

Our software comes in three versions: free distribution, a fully maintained standardized software-as-a-service, and a custom enterprise edition. Open Social is built using 'Drupal 8’, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences. It has more than a hundred thousand active contributors worldwide. The product is funded by GoalGorilla, a leading Drupal agency from The Netherlands.

Open Social is based in tech-hub TQ in Amsterdam and in Twente, and both are part of the Dutch StartupDelta; Europe’s largest startup ecosystem.
