Volunteer Product Developer FAQs

How will I find out if I am selected for Volunteer Product Developer project?
If you are selected we will contact you by e-mail. If you are not selected, your information will be retained for future projects. If you choose not to participate in a project, you can let us know after you are contacted. At any time, if you would like, we can remove your information from our volunteer product developer database. Please contact us at info@atayne.com with the request and we will remove from our database.

What if I don't know the answer to a question on the form?
All the questions on the form are designed to get a better sense of who you are and what activities you are most passionate about so we can pick the most appropriate volunteers for each project. There is no technical or industry knowlegde required to fill out the form.  We just ask that you respond openly and honestly.

How much time will I spend if I participate in a project?
This depends on the type of project.  It could be a 30 second survey or a series of in depth reviews.  Before you agree to participate in the project, we will send you details which will include the anticipated time commitment.

If I submit my information am I automatically selected for a project?
No, we select our volunteers based upon product specifications, project requirements, and the individual's background and interests. No one is ensured a spot in a project.

Do I get to keep the product when I am done volunteering?
In most cases yes.  That is part of the fun!

Can I choose whether I participate in a particular project?
Absolutely, but we can not make any guarantees that you will be selected for a future project.

What if I am unable to complete a volunteer project?
We understand that in some situations you may not be able to complete a project. Please let us know as soon as possible so we can work something out with you.
