MyBB Team Member Openings
#1
Update: Applications for this round are currently closed. Thank you for your interest. We will contact successful candidates by forum PM.

Greetings all,

I am here to announce the openings on two teams within the MyBB Group: the SQA team and Support team.

Quality Assurance Team

The MyBB Group is expanding its staff team to include a group of testers, also known as the Software Quality Assurance (SQA) team (you may have already seen some purple-coloured staff members). In light of our forthcoming 2.0 development, which will most importantly consist of a rewrite of the entire MyBB core code, we anticipate many opportunities and avenues for new bugs to arise. For this reason, the MyBB Group is currently looking for several interested and committed community members to join the MyBB Group as SQA team members.

The SQA team in general will be primarily responsible for reviewing and testing development code for all MyBB projects (i.e., all releases of MyBB and the Merge System) on an ongoing basis in various categories such as usability, compatibility and performance. Depending on the position team members may also document test procedures, test results, and creating automated test scripts.

We expect applicants to be knowledgeable in the operation of MyBB. Ideally, applicants will also know and/or use one or more of the following items: PHP, (X)HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Atom, RSS (SQA team members may be assigned specific areas depending on their installed platforms, proficiencies and interests). Also, it would be preferable for SQA team members to be available in urgent situations, for example, in testing security patches before an urgent release.

SQA team members will be part of the official MyBB Group. Members will have read access to the MyBB SVN repository for access to the latest MyBB code, and will also receive other "perks" of being a staff member.

If you are interested in joining the SQA team, please contact us using our contact form (select the subject "Available Team Member Position") with the following information:
  • MyBB Forum username
  • Background info on yourself
  • Knowledge and/or usage of programming languages, databases
  • Knowledge and/or past experience of testing/SQA and xUnit testing
  • Please indicate what system environment you have for testing (what web server, database management systems, PHP version you are using)
  • Any other information you wish to include to differentiate yourself from other applicants
  • Also add somewhere in the message that you are interested in the SQA Team


Note that existing and active community members will be given preferential treatment for these positions due to their existing dedication to the MyBB project.

Support Team

The MyBB Group is also looking new support team members who are dedicated to MyBB and can communicate clearly and professionally in English. As a staff member, you will have more responsibilities including moderating the support forum and handling minor user-related issues. Activeness, knowledge of MyBB, and communication skills are the key criteria; PHP and MySQL experience is not required but may be beneficial.

If you are interested in joining the support team, please contact us using our contact form (select the subject "Available Team Member Position") with the following information:
  • MyBB Forum username
  • Knowledge/experience of PHP, MySQL (or other database systems), if any
  • Background information on yourself
  • Any other information you wish to include to differentiate yourself from other applicants
  • Also add somewhere in the message that you are interested in the Support Team


Note that existing and active community members will be given preferential treatment for these positions due to their existing dedication to the MyBB project.


Please note that all positions are on a volunteer basis, you're under no obligation to stay with the MyBB Group if you have other commitments that need attending.

If you don't receive a reply, no - we haven't forgotten about you, it's just that there are usually too many applications to individually reply to each one. Private messages containing applications/team position queries will be ignored.

Thank you for your interest in MyBB.

Regretfully...
Dale Hay and Scott Hough have moved on from the MyBB team. We thank them for their dedication in the past years and wish them the best of luck in the future.

Not sure if many people read this because there was an update to the 1.4.3 thread, so just giving this a bump Smile
