Joomla has some of the best extensions and the Joomla Extension Directory (JED) is the place to find them. The JED Team is looking for PHP/Extensions developers to create the next iteration of the directory of the extensions. JED is organized according to the following positions:
- Team Manager
- Assistant Team Manager
- Listing Specialist
- VEL (vulnerable extension listing) Specialist
- Review Manager
- Support Specialist
All of these roles will be re-organized on the new JED4 and the planned JED Extension Checker Service. Here’s where YOU come in, we are looking for PHP/Extensions developers to help in the planning, development, and testing of both systems.
