Job description

What is Geek.Zone?

Geek.Zone is the community for geeks! We come together through our shared interests, so no matter what your hobby or passion is, you are sure to find like-minded people at Geek.Zone. We are not-for-profit too, so you know that every penny helps to build the community, not a fat cat.

What are we doing?

We are working toward opening Geek.Zone/01 - our first community hub - next year, so there are many interesting projects to get your teeth into! See http://Geek.Zone/01 for more info.

To open this great community space, we need systems that can manage it, so we are working on an exciting new open-source Python Django project that will become the heart of everything Geek.Zone does. Starting with membership management, we are aiming to automate almost everything, so that our member experience is entirely seamless.

In Geek.Zone/01, we will have everything from laser cutters to Mega Drives and as you can imagine, everything has a running cost. The goal is that a member will be able to register as a member, log in to their account and set the donations they wish to contribute towards those costs, then use their membership card to open the door and activate the laser cutter. The donation would then be collected from the member at the end of the month, so no need for cash. This makes it entirely user friendly!

Take a look at https://Geek.Zone/Dev to find out about some other projects that we have planned.

As a Geek.Zone Python Django Developer Volunteer, we would ask that you;

  • Join Geek.Zone - it's only £1+donation per year!

  • Report to the Geek.Zone/Dev Team Lead

What You Get from Geek.Zone

Not only is this an opportunity for you to expand your technical skills, but it is also a great way to meet other Devs and have some fun! Geek.Zone is a great community of geeky people and by joining the Geek.Zone/Dev team, you will be able to use your superpowers for good!

Geek.Zone/01 will be a great place for you to be creative any time day or night - and you could be at the heart of building it. See more at http://Geek.Zone/01
