Some areas of the team are full at the moment, applications can be submitted only for areas that can be selected in the list. Available areas might change without notice.

Select the area of the team that you like and you'll see some guidelines for the letter here.

Describe anything about your experience in computer repairs (desktop or laptops), or building computers, or soldering of electronic components.

If you don't know something, what do you do to learn it yourself, usually? You can give us some examples as well.

If you ever used Linux, feel free to talk about it: we install Linux on every computer that we repair.

Mention how much time you have for team activities, too, and if you have any other hobby or interests other than repairing computers.

These are just guidelines, write anything that you consider relevant.

One of the goals of the team is to develop electronic tools for low-level hardware diagnostics and the reuse of recovered hardware.

What's your relationship with electronics? Are you more interested in digital or analog (especially power) electronics do you like both equally?

If you ever made any electronic circuit or project other than those for academic courses, tell us. Explain also the method you've used to build them (breadboard, prototype board, PCB, through-hole components or SMD, etc...)

Tell us if you have experience with any Electronic Design Automation software (project, simulation, test and verification, etc...).

Mention how much time you have for team activities, too, and if you have any other hobby or interests other than designing circuits.

These are just guidelines, write anything that you consider relevant.

The team has a few Linux server with some web apps and SSO software. Configuration is automated partially through Ansible and partially through containers with Docker/Podman.

There is new software to install and configure, containers to improve and routine maintenance to perform (installing updates), there is always work to do.

If you already have experience with similar tasks, excellent, but the minimum requirement is not being scared by a Linux terminal.

It's more important that you are a precise person that accurately reads the manual and (error) messages before running commands. If you are one and you want to get down to server administration, tell us something about yourself and your experience with Linux, servers or computers in general.

Mention how much time you have for team activities, too, and if you have any other hobby or interests other than managing servers.

These are just guidelines, write anything that you consider relevant.

Describe any prior experience you have in coding in Python, and don't hesitate sharing your Github account in your letter if you have one!

In 2021-2022 we have launched a new project to improve the quality of life of students (skeeell). We we are working on creating skeeelled, a web platform for better e-learning services available to all the 40’000 PoliTo students. If you have already worked with backends or REST APIs in Python (e.g. Django, Flask), or in other programming languages, we are looking for you! At the moment we are using FastAPI.

You could mention if you have ever used virtual environments, collaborated with someone else on a software project, or if you can code in other programming languages.

Besides attending lectures, what do you do to learn? E.g. watching or reading tutorials online, starting to write code and looking things up on Stack Overflow as you go, etc...

Our main PHP projects are Tarallo, WEEEHire and crauto, you can have a look so you know what you're going to work on.

From 2021-2022 we have also established a collaboration with the developers of the Telegram bot inginf_bot, for our project that aims to improve the quality of life of students.

Tell us about your experience developing software in PHP or for the web in general. It's also fine to say "for the ... exam I've created a program that does ..." or "I've made a website for the bakery near my house".

Not all the computers that we get are repairable, but we'd still like to minimize the quantity of stuff that goes into the trash can.

If you have any DIY skills and/or experiences in creative reuse and/or "making" this is the moment to tell us.

You can also add some ideas (if you have any) on how we could reuse empty cases, particularly beautiful motherboards or shiny plates from broken hard disk drives.

Point out which method you'd follow to develop these projects, too.
