Projects and Opportunities

|Bilingual Chinese English Product Owner|
We have a unique role for a bilingual (Mandarin and English) Product Owner to join the FOLIO open source project to work with a development team based in China (Shanghai) that is adapting FOLIO to the Chinese public library market.
This is a paid contract position. Duration 1 - 2 years. See attached for more details:
|Miscellaneous features as-needed||Pick up high priority features in various epics as-needed|
Generally speaking, one PO is responsible for an entire epic. That said, there can be a lot of work in a single epic and it is sometimes possible to break off a feature or two for definition by another PO. This can really increase output across the project and ensure that development has an ample backlog of defined work to pull from. This would be a great role for someone who wants general exposure to the project without a major time commitment. Coordination with "primary PO" will be critical.
Duration 3 -6 months.
