Policy Platform Front-end Developer - EUR Policy
The policy platform team is seeking a front-end developer to join our team as a volunteer. We are in the process of building a new Xwiki-based policy platform that will streamline the creation, sharing, and collaboration of policies within our organisation and with external stakeholders. As a frontend developer, you will play a crucial role in the design and development of the platform's user interface and user experience.
About the position
You will collaborate with the co-leads, UX designer, system engineer and other developers to design and implement the platform’s interface in order to provide a consistent and intuitive user experience across the platform.
The Policy Platform is an Xwiki based application designed to streamline the creation, sharing, and collaboration of policies within our organisation and with external stakeholders. Being an open source project, Xwiki has a lot of inbuilt features already which will need to be tuned in order to serve our specific Pan-European needs. More importantly, given that this tool will act as the main portal to our party’s thoughts, it is crucial to build a smooth and modern user experience. For an overview of what’s in store, feel free to check in with any of our co-leads (you can find their contacts below).
Technical experience is helpful - certain skills are also required - but we do not expect you to be an expert. If in doubt, apply!
