Be a tester, get paid
The Civic User Testing Group (CUTGroup) is a set of regular Chicago residents who get paid to test out civic apps.
- Fill out a CUTGroup profile and sign up to be a tester of civic apps, and we'll send you a $5 VISA gift card
- If and when you are chosen to test a civic app, you get paid a $20 VISA gift card.
There is a large and growing community of "civic hackers" in Chicago — technology developers who make websites, mobile apps, and other tools that often have specific use in Chicago. The goal is to make software that helps make lives better in the city.
The problem is that lots of civic apps get attention among a smallish group of other developers and people interested in the world of open data, but do not get wide acceptance by the people they were made for — regular residents of the city of Chicago.
You are going to change all that!
We need people from all over the city, using all sorts of devices, browsers and operating systems.
