In the next months, we are planning to further expand the features of the Joomla Volunteers Portal. Main focus areas will be:

  1. Improve the ability to match open positions (see the Help Wanted page) with volunteers willing to contribute based on skills & interests.
  2. Implementing a system (e.g. badges) to recognise volunteers for their contributions across the entire Joomla!-project and make contributions visible on profiles, in collaboration with the Volunteer Engagement Team.
  3. Improve the tools & workflow for teams to communicate with each other (like sending email messages to all team members).

To work on these improvements the Volunteers Portal team is looking for new volunteers that are interested in contributing to the Volunteer Portal. At the moment we have several open positions:


As Contributor you are available to discuss and work on various task and ideas to improve the Volunteers Portal and volunteering processes.


As Developer you are regularly contributing (mainly PHP) code to the public Volunteers Portal repository on GitHub. You can improve the existing code or work on new requested features by the community.


As Moderator you check Joomler profiles for spam accounts and keep an eye on incorrect (display) of information of Joomlers, teams and reports.

Joomler Interviewer

As Joomler Interviewer you reach out to Joomlers for an interview about their contributions. The goal is to publish at least a monthly Joomler interview in the Joomla Community Magazine.

We're looking for you!

Please contact the Volunteers Portal team if you are interested in any of the above roles or want to contribute on another area.
