As part of an exciting new project, OSG is building an open sourced accessible course authoring tool. Organizations are relying on digital and online training more than ever, however, creating courses and content that are accessible to individuals of all abilities remains a difficult task that is reserved for a select few with niche training. Because of that, most courses are not truly accessible. We are embarking on a journey to remove the barriers to creating accessible digital content by developing an easy-anyone-can-do-it authoring tool that inherently embraces accessibility. While we will be embracing this tool within our own Curriculum department, we also wish to freely share it with others.
We’re looking for an experienced Intermediate Full Stack Developer with the ability to thrive within a newly formed team with fluid processes and an evolving roadmap. This person will play a big part in building an exciting, innovative product from the ground up, and will enjoy all of the creative freedom that comes with new product development. As a remote first organization, this is a work from home opportunity.
