The HR Generalist Position includes four major responsibilities, which will also function as the main outline of this page (in the future) under which to organize its respective content.
- General Promotion: of OSE leading to 4 main avenues of involvement at present (though more are possible): i. Backers & doners; ii. Workshop Attendees; iii. Early adopters of / contributors to the GVCS; and most importantly Developers
- Recruiting: (just expanded and elaborated efforts of the promotions above, bust specifically targeted for gathering developers) + actively recruit developers, review application video cover letters + refer applicants to the Developer Test + review DISQUS comments etc. to streamline the test.
- Onboarding: Review the New Developer Orientation and ensure new applicants are properly informed, connected, and set up for development.
- Support: Keep in regular communication with developers to ensure they are well placed and supported, and provide off-boarding if need by.

See Recruiting Priorities page.
OSE's social capital warrants Linux.org-scale contribution volume, yet this potential is almost entirely untapped (.1℅ at most). To address this, OSE is developing its HR towards a professional organizational level, without a budget, based on learnings from the Rare Genomics Institute's HR department. OSE's first step is hiring an HR Generalist, with promotion track to VP of HR. Current stable recruiting goals include an Engineering Team and Documentation Team. We are inviting people to apply for our OSE Developer positions.
