The OSM Operations Working Group is a volunteer group, responsible for running of the servers owned by the OpenStreetMap Foundation.
We are always keen to find new members and we are particularly looking for people who:
- can analyse our server infrastructure
- make plans
- forecast future hardware needs
- draw up budgets
This does involve a certain level of technical expertise but it’s not writing code, for example, and OWG membership doesn’t grant access to any of the servers – that’s for our Sysadmins. If you would like to join us, have a read of our membership policy, and please get in touch!
Some additional information:
- OWG’s main communication channels are Github and email. We rarely have meetings.
- Estimate of hours per week: 1-3
Email us at email@example.com
We are also on Twitter @OSM_Tech
If you have the technical expertise and experience to be a sysadmin, read our sysadmin membership policy and get in touch.
