Finding a job while caring about free software (audio only)

Presented by: "Ian Kelling, Rubén Rodríguez Pérez, Amin Bandali"

Ian was an FSF volunteer before joining the FSF in May 2017 as a senior systems administrator. He's also a free software developer and has contributed to various projects including GNU Emacs.


A panel of people who care about software freedom, and have have somewhat recently gone through a job search. They will discuss and share their experience, offer some advice, and involve the audience.

There is a vast array of ways to advance free software while looking after your finances, but in this talk, our focus will be on finding employment doing technical work and issues encountered there.

For example: How much conflict with free software values do you accept in a company and for what price? What about ethical differences between your individual work vs the employer's overall business model?
