Up for contributing to an Open Source project that will benefit the Pride movement worldwide? If so, we need your help!?

Over the past couple of years, our volunteer team have built a great Open Source website using React. We've got a great foundation to build off of, but this year want to do more to support other Pride teams to reach their goals by delivering new digital product, and improving existing ones.

We're looking for developers who are excited about contributing to Open Source projects, and who want to make a big difference to the LGBTQ+ community. Our goal is to give Pride relevance year round, and so we're actively exploring how our site can be a destination for events, content and education 365 days a year.

Our website is built with more than its appearance and content in mind. Speed, security and accessibility are at the heart of what we do, and we are looking for engineers who value optimising existing code as much as building something new, as we want to constantly be improving what we have alongside delivering new initiatives.


In this role you'll be:

  • Delivering a high standard of React code using agile practices e.g. pair programming
  • Working to a regular release schedule to iterate and improve our app throughout the year
  • Developing and maintaining a component library across mobile, desktop and tablet
  • Shaping the team's technical practices and the architecture of our platforms
  • Supporting and mentoring other team members

What you get out of it:

  • To be part of delivering the website for the second largest event in London that is used by hundreds of thousands of people
  • To join a compassionate, driven team who treat you like family and emphasise open communication
  • The chance to mentor more junior team members, and receive mentoring from those with more experience than you
  • The opportunity to test your developer skills and (for more senior developers) the opportunity help drive important technical and architectural decisions
  • The opportunity to experiment with new tools and methodologies, and to work with a diverse team of Digital experts

Time commitment:

Each week you'll usually spend between 4-8 hours on Pride work. This includes a mixture of catchups, meetings and actual work. Depending on the projects we have on the go some weeks will be busier than others, but we'll give plenty of notice of what's coming up.

We don't count it as Pride time, but the Digital team are a pretty social team and get together when we can for fun too.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!


Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
