On November 28 I posted about our efforts to get more volunteers into Mozilla IT. A lot has happened in the background since and I want to let you know what’s happening (and why it’s taking so long!).
O. M. G.
The response and interest has been overwhelming.
I listed five different positions volunteers could “apply” to. I chose to use our exising applicant tracking system, Jobvite (I already have enough wheels, don’t need to invent another) and many of you have already expressed interested and applied.
Here’s a run down of responses so far:
|Mozilla Mirror Administrator||30|
|Air Mozilla Stage Hand||4|
|Mozilla Foundation SysAdmin||14|
|Data Center Operations Engineer||4|
- There’s a lot of people to talk to and we’re slowing scheduling time to chat.
- I talked about the Mozilla IT Volunteer Agreement. We’re continuing to refine it. With Gerv’s and Jishnu’s help we’ve carried this conversation to mozilla.governance.
- We are double-checking to make sure we understand issues around volunteers and various government regulations.
Unfortunately this means we’re moving a but slower than I had hoped. If you’ve already expressed interested, that’s fantastic and we’ll be talking to you soon.
Bear with – I think we’re in slightly uncharted territory!
