About this project:

Group Income is a user-friendly way of providing your friends and family, or community, with a minimum income, without relying on politics. Group Income (the app) is built upon a novel protocol and framework for creating open source, decentralized, and end-to-end encrypted applications.

Are you an expert at JavaScript with an interest in infosec? Been programming for at least 4 years? Know several programming languages? Great! You might be a fit for this position. ๐Ÿ™‚

Required attributes:

  • JavaScript expert and able to prove it.
  • Understanding of basic infosec concepts.
  • Minimum 4 years of programming experience using more than one programming language.

What to expect:

Have a look at our Github project and existing pull requests. Our development process involves in-depth review and testing to ensure the highest level of quality. Be prepared for potentially multiple rounds of PR reviews, and be prepared to also review other peopleโ€™s code.
