Element is the company that currently hires most of the people working on the open #Matrix communication protocol specification. Element also produces the #opensource Matrix servers #Synapse and #Dendrite, and the #web, #desktop, #Android and #iOS clients called #Element.
I also work at Element. Element is not just open source and open specifications. Element is also about #business. The thing that is needed to pay the #developers that work on the open specifications and open source that anyone can use freely. And people do! Matrix is hugely popular and massively growing, in public sector, private sector and hobbyist self-hosters. It's an exciting time to be involved.
Element is currently hiring for multiple roles - including the team I work for. This is the SaaS team of Element Matrix Services, which provides hosted Matrix (servers) and Element (clients) to all kinds of customers, from small teams to large enterprises - and sometimes virtual conferences.
It's a fun company to work at. And remote friendly, even outside Covid! Interested? Have a look at the roles below. We're growing fast so there are many - and not just #engineering.

Report shows insufficient #ClimateAction plans
2021 is a make or break year to confront the global #ClimateEmergency. The #science is clear, to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C, we must cut global #emissions by 45% by 2030 from 2010 levels. Today’s interim report from the #UNFCCC is a red alert for our planet.
On Sunday, @email@example.com and I will talk about the current status of our Git learning game! ✨ #GodotEngine https://fosdem.org/2021/schedule/event/git_learning_game/

As much as I would like to ditch #WhatsApp I don't see that as an option yet.
My best friends and family are all using WhatsApp with no intentions on switching to another service. It's simple, convenient and works for us. I hate that it's proprietary, owned by #Facebook and by default has access to your contacts, however, my contacts are not going to migrate without keeping WhatsApp around.
It's necessary to fix Facebook and WhatsApp rather than telling everyone to "go switch".
Part of me feel anxious when I contradict myself or correct previous statements about my #DnD world.
However, I get better with every story and highly recommend Dungeons and Dragons as a #quarantine game that improves your story telling skills.
I'm looking forward to next Saturday when our current adventure will come to a conclusion. It's time for a puzzle and a boss. 😈
A recording of me carrying the gnome through all levels can be found on YouTube. I had to split it into two parts with a minute of gameplay missing because of a crashing bug they introduced today. 🙈 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmSBf7HKQy87Cd_TVbXYK6steToVI_xjb
So far I've submitted two games to #js13kgames. "Fly South" in 2017 and "We fight back" in 2019.
"We fight back" had been a huge improvement, with less bugs, better graphics, some ((terrible)) sound effects and multiple levels. Early feedback from my coworkers helped the game to be fun and challenging.
In the beginning of this year I joined New Vector (the company behind #Matrix) to improve the state of instant messaging. The open-source mindset is exactly what I had been looking for and I'm very happy to be able to work on Matrix full-time.
