Work with Plausible Labs

When I started Plausible Labs in 2008, we were working out of our homes, paying our rent out of savings while we figured out how to bootstrap worker-owned software cooperative without external funding.

A year or so later, I'm part of a three member team. We are all still working out of a home, but now it's a loft in the Mission with proper office space, Ikea desks, and even a few Aeron chairs. We've got the issue of self-sufficiency figured out, and now we're looking to the future -- how we'd like to grow our organization, what sort of software projects we'd like to tackle (both in-house and on contract), and how the co-operative experiment will scale past a few members.

We're ready to take on more (and larger) projects, and we’d like to find the right engineer for a contract-to-hire role to help us out. We’re particularly keen in finding someone genuinely interested in joining the co-operative, and open to working with us on either a part-time or full-time basis.

If you'd be interested in working with us, you can find the job posting here.

New Plausible Labs Website

We just released a new design for the Plausible Labs website, home of the fine worker-owned cooperative that keeps me gainfully employed so that I can spend my free time (such as it exists) working on open source software.
