Volunteer Open Source Developer (.NET)

ESiBS is a web based product for volunteer management and communications, used by a number of Special Constabularies.

It has transformed time management and saved a fortune in expenses. We are making this available to other forces on a collaborative basis.

We are looking to take ESiBS to the next level and we wish to make the platform open source and run it by volunteers.  It feels only fitting a platform dedicated to volunteers is run by volunteers.

Could you be that person to help us on this exciting journey?
