Seeking software developers for building a search engine for OSHW

We are building a search engine for open source hardware. Seeking two software engineers with experience in building crawlers and/or search engines. Interest in hardware (electronic engineering, mechanical engineering) and enthusiasm for open source a plus. This work is funded by NLNet and the resulting work will be made available to the public under free and open source licenses.

  • Location: Anywhere (remote, you’ll be checking in with me and I’m in UTC+1)
  • Start date: November
  • Commitment: full-time for 3 months
  • Remuneration: 4500 Euro a month (proof of concept site built in a few days, this project is to build that out into proper crawler and search)

Please email your CV to If you know of anyone that’s not on this forum that would be interested please do send them this text and ask them to get in touch.

@kaspar I wonder if you may get some interest if this was in the general category on the CE forum as many of the members seem to be more software first and hardware second (hence their membership). I realise that’s not the primary reason for the general area of the CE forum so may not be appropriate. Also maybe the .stack?

Thanks, yes, good idea. May try and repost in general in a couple of weeks unless @ChrisGammell objects.
