Dear FOSSASIA Friends,

FOSSASIA and OpnTec Germany have new positions open in the Eventyay team working on the Open Event project.

The solution is already a great fit for live events. We now need help to go the next steps developing it into a fully flexible platform for online events.

Rather than lengthy interview processes we prefer, if you showcase your abilities to work on the project by solving some issues in the frontend repo or server repo and create pull requests that convince us to hire you. 

Both are possible - to work short-term or long-term on the project. As a team member you would be collaborating with the development lead Mr. Areeb Jamal. You can talk to us on Gitter.

More details on and below.

Please share this info with friends and colleagues.

All the best and stay healthy!

- Mario
