Mattermost Integrations Bounty Program: May 23 - July 23

Mattermost has launched an integrations bounty program to work with our communities to create highly-requested integrations.

The bounty per integration is $2,000 PLUS an exclusive Mattermost SWAG bag! The period for submissions is May 23 - July 23, 2019.

If you’re interested in joining the program,

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to countries we can pay the bounty to. Wires to notable banks are preferred, but other options exist. Please contact us to ensure eligibility.

Moreover, submissions must meet the criteria specified in “Open Projects” section. See below for further details.

Paid staff or hiring candidates on a paid audition are not eligible to participate.

Rules

Multiple submissions are considered on a first-come first-served basis. If the first submission meets the bounty criteria, the first submission receives the bounty.

If multiple people are interested in working on the same integration, we encourage people to work together. The bounty is allocated equally to all contributors. However, Mattermost reserves the right to split the bounty unequally, for instance, when one of the contributors completed the majority of the work.

At all times, Mattermost reserves the right to decide if a submission receives a bounty, but we aim to set clear expectations and strive for transparency and fairness throughout the process.

To submit your entry for a bounty

  • Publish it in a GitHub repository licensed under Apache 2.0 or MIT
  • Share the link via

Mattermost may ask you to transfer the repository under the https://github.com/mattermost organization for long-term maintenance. If so, we’ll take steps to ensure you are credited for your work and recognized as the original creator. For an example project transferred to Mattermost, see https://github.com/mattermost/desktop.

All submission winners will need to submit a W-9 (US based prize winners) or W-8BEN (for non-US prize winners); an invoice or other equivalent paperwork to AP@mattermost.com claiming the prize with proper authorization; completed Mattermost contributor license agreement; and banking information via this Google form. If you are prize winner based in the US, we are required by the IRS to issue a 1099 form for money or prizes earned greater than $600 in any given calendar year.
