    Silex, the website builder is used by non profit organizations, small companies and freelancers around the world. More than 20.000 sites are powered by silex, and growing fast. We are competitors of Wix and Jimdo for example.

    Silex is foss and also available online in SaaS mode for free thanks to Silex Labs, our foundation. Silex is in node.js and js, see for more info about Silex.

    We have already a good start of continuous integration, automatic functional tests with selenium, a professional release/build process.

    We are looking for someone to help on this matter, make more tests or it better in any way. Someone who will take the lead, arbitrate the priorities with the small dedicated dev team.

    We do not necessarily look for someone with the skills, we can definitely help you get it straight, learn and understand.

      I have a question, this is not a job offer, right?

      Thanks, greetings.

        Hi David
        This is very likely to bring you opportunities but it is not a paid job offer.

    I represent Hitek Computer School - Vancouver, BC private educational institution focused on intensive training in Software QA and Software Testing (Software Testing Methodology, Defect Tracking, Test Automation, Web Testing, etc.).
    As a part of our internship program for Hitek graduates, we send them to various software companies for online internships. Our students work on average 1-4 months or longer FREE. The only thing we ask in exchange, is a reference (in a form of reference letter and/or telephone/email reference) based on the student's performance.
    I can assure you that our professionally trained graduates are completely capable in performing QA/Software Testers responsibilities. I am wondering if you will be interested in having our graduates as Software Testers for your projects.
    Thank you,

    Hi Alex,

    I have followed the instructions and have installed Silex and started testing locally and found some bugs. I am updating the GIT hub with the issues that I found. Please do let me know if I am going in the right direction.

    Yes you are
    Have you run the functional tests? (grunt test -phantomjs) They fail right now I think...
