Be a tester, get paid
The Civic User Testing Group (CUTGroup) is a set of regular Oakland residents who get paid to test out civic apps.
- If and when you are chosen to test a civic app, you get paid a $20 gift card via GiftRocket.
There is a large and growing community of "civic hackers" in Oakland — technology developers who make websites, mobile apps, and other tools that often have specific use in Oakland. The goal is to make software that helps make lives better in the city.
The problem is that lots of civic apps get attention among a smallish group of other developers and people interested in the world of open data, but do not get wide acceptance by the people they were made for — regular residents of the city of Oakland.
You are going to change all that!
We need people from all over the city, using all sorts of devices, browsers and operating systems.
