Find Work Through Open Source: WorksHub Issues

Josh Kaplan 21 August, 2019 | 3 min read

Work is Changing

You no longer need to be in the same room as your CTO team to change the world. Programmers are building the future from different cities, countries and continents, thousands of miles away from their colleagues.

Remote working is one of the most common demands from the developers we speak to; developers want the freedom and the lifestyle that remote working gives and we want to give it to you. We even launched Remote Works off the back of this demand for remote working.

"Companies should be able to pick the best programmers from the entire global talent pool... not just who happens to live within commuting distance"


Which is why we're launching a brand new product to help developers stand out to companies easier than ever before. Works Hub Issues is a tool that will drastically change the way you discover great companies and job opportunities.

By using our Open-source issues, you can work on interesting projects, build your skills and get paid for the work that you do. You can pick projects from companies you find interesting or whose code you want to learn more about. You get to be a part of interesting projects and companies get a real sense of what you’re capable of.

We’re helping you connect to the biggest and best companies in tech, wherever they’re based. You should be able to pick the best, most interesting jobs from the entire global market, not just your immediate city. Tech talent isn’t just in the big cities any more, you can learn to code from a bedroom in Kiev just as easily as Berkeley.

There’s no reason why your opportunities should be limited by where you happen to be living. And as remote working becomes more normalised in every industry, programmers stand to gain the most.

"Tech is one of the most remote-friendly industries, and we want to help prepare for the way the industry is going"

You don’t have to worry about a three month hiring process, flying out for interviews and trying to impress hiring managers only for them to take offer someone else a job. You can do real work that adds value to innovative products done and live in the time it would take to go in for an interview.

We started as a recruitment company, but we want to be so much more. The labour market is re-aligning and we want to give you the tools to make the most of the changing landscape. With WorksHub Issues, we’re opening up our community to get working on projects that matter to you. You pick the issues you want to work on, in the languages you want to work with and do work that you find stimulating.

You get to try out new languages and technologies, find out what the company is actually like to work at, you can build new skills and even get paid for your contributions.

When you submit work on an issue, you’re advertising your skills and your code to the world. Not only will you get enjoyable, paid and professional work, you’ll be connected with companies you may end up working for.

And we’re backed by the numbers. According to this year’s Stack Overflow survey, over 90% of developers believe that OSS is either the same or better quality than closed. We also surveyed the thousands of developers on our platform and the results were overwhelming. Over 80% of our users said they’d be more likely to work for a company whose Open-Source they’d already contributed to.

Instead of taking boilerplate coding tests that don’t tell you anything about a company and don’t produce anything valuable. Why not do real work, get paid and show off your skills to companies you want to work for?
