Blender Institute (BI) currently employs and supports several key Blender developers. Most of their time goes to generic development projects - sponsored by the Foundation or via Open Movies.
To kickstart support services for and by Blender Network members, BI now wants offer to Network members an opportunity to hire it for development work. Contracting and planning will be handled by Ton Roosendaal, assisted by Campbell Barton and Brecht van Lommel. Development work could be handled by anyone who's experienced with Blender code, but will be supervised and coordinated by BI.
