[Project] OpenBfE: our open source initiative

As a global nonprofit that is pioneering many different technology applications to serve our growing user base, we have benefited immensely from the open-source tech community. It is time for us to contribute back, and we need your help today.

You will be leading and planning the framework for open-sourcing internal codes to the public. This involves understanding our existing coding workflow, thinking about how sensitive components and things suitable for open-sourcing can be separated, and researching on a workflow that will cost minimal time spent for our developers and encourage them to participate.

You will also get assistance from our outreach team to help with branding of the initiative, and leverage on advice and resources from our network of technology professionals or external organisations you connect to on behalf of BfE.

At the end of your project, if you want to stay involved with our cause and subject to satisfactory progress, you will have the opportunity to join our management team as a Global Technology Initiatives Manager.
