MediaWorks is looking for a software developer to further the work of creating LightNet, an online product that will enable ministries to: run their own media distribution platforms; share media with each other in a decentralised way; and quickly create interactive community websites and webapps.
MediaWorks equips local ministries around the globe with relevant print and digital media that helps them share the gospel and strengthen believers in their communities.
By joining our experienced but small development team as we move to the second iteration, you will help provide ministries with this digital tool. Be part of communicating God's love to least reached people groups in the languages and context of their communities in new ways.
We are using the following technologies:
What you would be working on
We are building a highly decentralised system that has a couple of components. Depending on your interests and skills, you can work with the primary focus on the front-end, back-end or infrastructure aspect. We are not only building a content management system (CMS) but also a generic front-end that is highly configurable by the ministries using it. For example: library.mediaworks.global and nadija.org.
Some ministries will need a fully customised front-end. We are building the system in an agile way and will adapt our focus and direction depending on the use cases of the local ministries.
Our focus for the coming year includes:
It is possible to work in Stockerau (Austria) or remotely from anywhere in the world with good Internet connection.
Salaries for full-time OM workers are not provided by the organisation but through individual support raising. There is also the possibility to offer your time on a voluntary basis.
