Over the past year or so, we have been dealing with issues with our bots and automation pipeline. We would really appreciate some more hands on deck. Please only apply as a bot mod if you are willing to begin contributing as soon as possible. With enough help and time, we are hoping to have a working sidebar and the game thread index for the coming NBA season.
We are looking for people who:
Have some Python experience (not required but nice to know: REST APIs, SQLAlchemy, Discord.py, PRAW)
Want to write code for the subreddit and/or discord
Learn about and work with CI/CD, automation and Kubernetes
If you're interested in:
Improving subreddit automation (game threads, sidebar content, etc.)
Improving moderation automation
Developing Discord bots for things such as predictions, pulling up stats, scores and more
In the comments, please mention any experience you might have on the topics listed, so that we can make an informed decision. If you would like to share any other details with us (eg: GitHub profile, past projects), you can send them directly to us using modmail
For those considering this, if you join as a bot mod there is no expectation to mod the subreddit or the Discord in any capacity beyond your help with the bots.
For those who may want to join as just a regular mod, we will be looking to add more mods this offseason, so please wait and apply at that time.
