Software Developer

Salary Unpaid

(The internship position will be carried out in Q1 2023, either remotely or in our office in Aarhus, Denmark, changes can be discussed)

Want to become a part of building the fastest growing platform for coordinating action on global challenges?

About Acter

If we are going to solve some of the most pressing challenges of our time, such as the climate and biodiversity crisis, equality, racism and social justice , we need to become much better at organising ourselves.

Acter is a non-profit organisation, building an open source* tool to support activists and movements across the world, to strengthen collective action, collaboration and coordination.

*What is open-source ?

“Open source is a term that originally referred to open source software (OSS). Open source software is code that is designed to be publicly accessible — anyone can see, modify, and distribute the code as they see fit.”

From Pilot to Scaling

During the last three years we have managed to build a pilot with our users. We have established partnerships with global organisations, built a community of users and expanded our contributor community, consisting of developers, designers and ambassadors.

Recently, we went open source which couldn’t be more exciting - this means we are now ready to take Acter to the next level.

During the last two years we have managed to build a strong community, validate our concept, and establish partnerships that have allowed us to develop a successful MVP. We are now in the process of developing the next version of Acter, and for this we need more developer-power!
