Made as an extension of the main moderation recruitment thread, this thread is meant specifically for developer recruitment for /leftypol/.
We are asking for tech-orientated volunteers to help with development of the site's code and features, especially if you have experience with web design, common website coding languages, and/or development of mobile apps

And that is it! The moderation team will take some time to review emails and get back to you, if your application is selected then your email will be replied to with a link to an element chatroom for a short informal interview before voting on your approval. Please be patient, as many people may be interviewed before you finally are selected.
Potential dev recruits will also be given a basic introduction to the site's functionality and have their own element room for discussion of site-related issues and requests. It is work-at-your-own-pace, contribute as you will - even if you are someone who will only contribute occasionally, you would still be valued.
If you are not selected for an interview, it will most likely be due to the desired quota of new devs being reached - do not be discouraged, there is always next time!
