Open-source and non-profit: We need your help!
Miro is part of the Participatory Culture Foundation (a non-profit organization) and is powered by a global community of volunteers: coders, translators, testers, community leaders, Miro Guide moderators, and more. We'd love to have you get involved - here are some places we need your help.
Miro is a free and open source project, licensed under the GPL. If you see a bug in the bug-tracker that you can fix, go for it!
- Our Miro Development Center has all the community information you'll need-- bug tracker, mailing list, IRC channel, build instructions, developer blogs, etc. Look around and join the email list.
- Checkout the code and try building Miro on your machine.
- Check out the Community Projects page for some projects and 'bite-sized' bugs to start on or just poke around in the bug tracker to find something that interests you.
Get an Internship
If you're a student looking for an exciting internship with a start-up style non-profit organization, we may be able to help. We've got slots for coders, non-profit biz-dev, and marketing. We're very flexible about where you work from, but we expect you to be self-motivated, dedicated, driven, professional, independent, and ready to get your hands dirty. If you're serious about an internship, send us a resume and brief statement of intent.

Become a Bug Tester
This is a fantastic way for anyone to contribute to the Miro project — you don't need programming skills, just the ability to describe problems clearly. Good bugs reports help the coders be much more efficient. Here's how to start:
- Janet, our bugmaster and QA director wrote up a guide on how to be an awesome bug reporter. She also writes the Miro testing blog. Take a look at both to get your bearings.
- Jump in and start testing.
