Making the law beginner-friendly for normal people
[What is HukumJelas?] Today, it’s really hard for normal people to find, read and understand laws (undang-undang) that impact them society. We’re an open source project & non-profit that’s trying to fix that by making a free website that makes reading the law convenient and beginner-friendly for normal people. Check out our prototype here and our pitch deck here. [What will I do?] This isn’t a job/internship; we’re an open source project looking for volunteers who are interested in joining our team of contributors. We’re currently a small team of 3 (Software Engineer @ Facebook, Sales Strategy @ Salesforce, Architecture @ UNPAR) and looking for 2-3 more people. We’re looking for coders/programmers who will build the 1st version of our website, targeted at law students & avid news readers. [Why should I join?] 1) Level up for the job/internship hunt!

2) Work on interesting technical challenges while building something people want
