edX Rebuilds its Open edX Team and Adds New Positions


EdX Inc., the not-for-profit venture that runs edX.org, the xConsortium and the Open edX community, has started to rebuild its team and thereby posted a listing of new jobs after some key developers and managers  left the organization.

“EdX commitment to the open source community is not changing, and we have posted a listing on our careers page for Developer Advocates“, said Joel Barciauskas, engineering manager at Open edX.

In addition, a position of Open edX Community Marketing Manager has been added. This person will help to promote the platform and related events, growing both the developer community as well as overall adoption.

The Open edX team at edX Inc. is now formed by Joel Barciauskas, Molly DeBlank and Ned Batchelder, after Sarina Canelake and David “DB” Baumgold decided to pursue other opportunities.

Currently, edX Inc., a well-funded organization created by MIT and Harvard, has 26 open positions, including a VP of Product who will be a member of the executive leadership team and report directly the President and COO. Over 140 people work today at edX’s headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
