I’ll be working on the reference backend server software used in Matrix (Synapse). The tech stack overlaps with what I was using: mostly Python code (specifically Twisted). Additionally, most of my work will be open-sourced (and developed in the open)! I’ve already had a few pull requests merged and a couple of my changes are already in the current version of Synapse (v1.11.1).
So far this has been a great change and I’m excited to work on a project that has an intersection of a bunch of interests of mine (privacy, communications, open-source, etc.) Let me know if you have any questions about Matrix! New Vector is also hiring for a bunch of positions if you’d like to come work with me!
