Product Owner (Remote) (Volunteer)

Work Type: Volunteer

Prayers Connect Inc, a 501(3)(c) non-profit based in New York, is building a platform to facilitate connections between mosques and muslims. This is our dawah work through digital technologies. The primary goal is to facilitate the mosque-goers to discover mosques, iqamah (prayers in congregation time), islamic events, islamic schools (coming soon, iA) etc. and allow mosque’s management team to easily connect to their members, donors and ultimately building a complete management system for them.

Prayers Connect is primarily built by volunteers. Most of our contributors have other full-time jobs. However, in addition to our volunteers, we’ve found our internship programs to be extremely successful. Interns were able to get hands-on experience on some of the technologies we use (depending on the work area), learn even more new technologies and get coaching and mentorship from experienced professionals, etc. At the same time, they are also able to make meaningful contributions in world-class products providing them valuable knowledge and experience to be successful in their career.

Technologies used at Prayers Connect:

Javascript/Typescript, React.js, React-Native, Expo, Next.js, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Docker, Kubernetes, AWS (S3, CF, Lambda, API Gateway), DigitalOcean, Google Cloud, Terraform, Github Action, Cloudflare, etc. while building a platform with core mission of improving muslims' connection to mosques.
