Search more jobs

Since we’ve started, one of our most popular categories for jobs and companies has been Software Development. Despite this fact, surprisingly few of those software related jobs have been at non-profit organizations. Still, we’ve come across our fair share – mostly open-source projects – of jobs at organizations that combine the web startup feel with the do-gooder mindset. One of those organizations is Participatory Culture Foundation, a Boston, MA based organization, that “makes bottom-up economies and cultures possible by ensuring that our political, social and cultural systems are open and democratic everywhere.” They took the non-profit route because they had seen too many startups sell out of their ideals due to financial pressure – that’s not going to happen to them.

Participate at PCF

The idea of spreading democracy and openness through software might sound foreign to you, but it actually makes a lot of sense. PCF’s first major project is a product called Miro, which is an online video player. They chose this project with the goal of building “a new, open mass medium of online television.” That’s definitely a mission that I can support. Miro is an cross-platform, open-source application that allows you to watch HDTV on your desktop, but it’s more than that. It’s also an embeddable video player that you’ve probably used on some of your favorite sites. If you’ve ever watched a video from the TED Conference, then you’re familiar with Miro. It’s an awesome platform for watching video online, and although it’s only a small step towards Participatory Culture Foundation’s goals, I think it’s a brilliant start. So, what about jobs at PCF? There’s only one option right now that is posted on their Jobs page. It’s for a Software Developer (big surprise there), and it sounds like a great job. You can find out all of the info on the Jobs page, and you can apply by sending a cover letter and resume to jobs@pculture.org.
