The Matrix Jobs Room

The Matrix Jobs Room (#jobs:matrix.org) is a public room to discuss Matrix-related paid projects. Customers can post jobs and potential vendors can apply to take them.

What follows is a basic guide to etiquette and how to get what you need from the room.

For Customers

Post your request with as much context, transparency and information as possible. For example, if you have a specific installation requirement for a project, mentioning these details would be helpful in the initial post.

Once you've selected a vendor, post to the public room to say so, to save other vendors continuing to email you.

For Vendors

If you have questions about the scope of the project, you can ask them in the public room before moving to Direct Messaging with the customer. This will allow other potential vendors to see more details of the request and save the customer needing to type the same details to multiple people.
