SUSE, our founder, partner and sponsor, has put out a couple of job openings for the openSUSE Boosters Team! Are you a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) enthusiast?

The Boosters Team

The openSUSE Boosters, widely known as the Ecstatic Eleven, is a team of people helping contributors to take off in our project. No matter if an ambassador needs help with organizing an event, an admin needs assistance with implementing a new service, or a developer needs guidance to bring his code into our distribution: the Boosters are here to work with all contributors to reach their goals and to enable them to bring this project forward. But the Boosters are not a bunch of lone fighters; the team always works together, in an agile fashion, on its milestones and every member is equally important and responsible for the success - and of course for celebrating it. It is a team of young, clever, spirited people from different backgrounds, countries and talents that want to collaborate. A team that wants to make a difference in this world by helping each other and our project to become even more awesome.

+ You

As you can imagine the Boosters goal requires people who are willing to explore the vast possibilities a FOSS project like ours offers. Boosters are as comfortable in front of an huge audience on a conference as behind an editor in a GIT repository. As the possibilities to contribute to openSUSE are endless a Booster must be agile, open minded and willing to take on tasks that require to learn completely new things. Be it a programming language, an application framework, how to give an interview to the press or what questions to ask in a questionnaire survey. Boosters are not afraid of anything and there is nothing they are not willing to do to attract and nurture contributors.

= Love?
