Inside Gratipay

This is Gratipay's internal company portal. First time here? Welcome! Start at the top. :-)

Welcome to Gratipay

Welcome to Gratipay! We are an open organization, with a porous boundary between our users (people with an account on Gratipay) and our collaborators (people who are providing Gratipay). The purpose of this website is to document Gratipay's business processes for our collaborators, and the purpose of this document is to help you take your first steps to becoming a Gratipay collaborator.

Onboarding as a Collaborator

First, read through the rest of our big picture documents. They provide important context about the nature of our company and what we are trying to accomplish.

Second, make sure you're aware of our behavior standards for collaborators, and our processes for dealing with bad behavior.

Third, skim through the howtos on this site as well as the appendices, so you can start to become familiar with what documentation exists for when you run into questions.

Fourth is to jump in! Our two main communication channels are Slack and GitHub.

You can join our Slack here.

We also invite you to make an onboarding ticket for yourself, especially if you've never used GitHub before—it's a good way to learn! 😌   If you don't have a GitHub account, create one. Then make a ticket titled “onboard @me” (where “me” is your GitHub username), and introduce yourself and what you're interested in working on. Your onboarding ticket will be your place to ask any and all questions you have as you orient yourself as a Gratipay collaborator.

After you make your onboarding ticket or introduce yourself in Slack, someone from Gratipay will respond and you will be off and running! Welcome aboard! 💃
