How To Submit to the Python Job Board

The Python Job Board is a free resource to help members of the Python community find paid work. It is for real jobs only (that is, only for paid openings that currently exist and are actively being hired for) where the successful candidate will spend the majority of their time writing Python. If this isn't the case, the submission will most likely be rejected.

Unpaid volunteer positions will not be posted on the jobs page. If you have some Python-related volunteer post, please post a description in the Wiki on the Volunteer Opportunities page; register with the Wiki and then follow the "EditText" link at the bottom of the Wiki page.

The Job Board is run by volunteers in their spare time, please be patient.

Unfortunately, we currently have volunteers only for English, please write your ad in English.

Note: Jobs must be primarily focused on Python. Please make sure your posting explains how Python is used for that specific job or your post will get rejected.

Cost: Job listings are free. Please donate to the Python Software Foundation, a US scientific and educational public charity (non-profit). US organizations and individuals may be able to claim tax exemption on donations.

Your listing will appear on the Job Board page, the RSS feed and on Twitter. To make the most of this, please follow the steps below:

  1. Descriptions must be sent in plain-text (ASCII or UTF-8) and use our template below. Please don't use non-text formats such as Word .doc or RTF - they will be rejected.

  2. Please copy the following template (download) into a plain text editor such as Notepad and edit it replacing the example information with your information and deleting any parts that aren't necessary:

    `Sample Company Inc. (Agency?) <http://www.example.com>`__ (New York, NY, USA)
    ========================================================================================
    
    **Job Description**:
    
    Short description of position (this will be
    used as a summary in the RSS feed and Twitter - 140 characters for
    your company name plus the first 10-15 words of your description)
    
    **Requirements**
    
    * Requirement item 1
    * Requirement item 2
    * Requirement item N
    
    **About the company**
    
    A short description of the company
    
    **What Python is used for**: if it's not obvious from the Job
    Description.
    
    **Contact Info:**
    
    * **Contact**: J. Random HR Manager

    When filling in the sections of the template bearing in mind the following:

    • ALL the punctuation in the template above is extremely important. Please make sure all of the following are left in place as they are in the template:

      ` < > _ == ** * :
      
    • We use a lightweight markup syntax called reStructuredText and, if needed, we will fix the markup of postings. If you want a preview of your posting, try this web page.

    • Descriptions may be edited for brevity, clarity, or uniformity. Please keep your posting as short as possible, it should be a maximum of 45 lines long, with each line being no more that 90 characters. These are maximum allowances, more succinct postings often elicit a better response. See the existing jobs listed for examples of acceptable posting length.

    • We will not accept postings that are considered to be highly similar to an existing submission. For example, when two recruiters are trying to fill the same position.

  3. Attach the resulting file to an email and send to jobs@python.org.

    Requests sent to any other email addresses or lists may not be handled promptly and may even be deleted as spam.

    You should receive an automated reply immediately. When the job is posted, you will receive confirmation email from one of the Job Board volunteers.

    Please note that the Python Job Board is maintained by volunteers. While we try to respond to requests promptly, sometimes life gets in the way. Please be patient.

  4. When the job gets filled, please let us know by emailing jobs@python.org. Job listings will be deleted after three months. We do not "bump" job postings, so please do not re-submit a job just because it is not at the top of the list.
