Job Posting requirements

The Boston Python group is focused on building a community in the Boston area among Python people. We're of course interested to hear about relevant jobs, but don't want the list to become another source of distracting spam. To that end, there are four requirements for job postings to the mailing list:

  • The job must significantly involve Python, for example, more than half of the work is in Python.
  • The job must be available to someone living in the Boston area. Either it's in Boston, or remote is OK.
  • The name of the hiring firm must be clearly provided. No mystery firms hidden behind a hiring agency.
  • The subject line must include "[Job]" to help people filter messages. For example, your subject line could look like this:

    [Job] Junior engineer at Initech

It's also a good idea, but not required, to include an email address in the message, so that people can contact you directly.

If your job posting meets these simple rules, feel free to send it to the mailing list at Be sure to send it from the email address you used when signing up for The message make take a few hours to go out, it has to be moderated.

Please don't use attachments, most readers won't open them anyway. Don't re-send announcements to the list too often: you will wear our readers' attention; six months is a good interval.

If you have questions about the format of job postings, peruse the previous messages to the list:

By the way, if you find this mailing list useful, it'd be great to make a donation to the group.

Please don't post jobs as event comments, or create wiki pages, etc. Thanks.
