Building in
Open Source?

We're building the toolset to help make Open Source sustainable.

Open Source Software. It powers the world around us.

We're building tools that make it really easy to monetise your expertise in Open Source projects.

Built for Open Source Creators

Every Expert on Ringer is verified as an Author, Maintainer or Contributor.

If you contribute to Open Source, you can add yourself as an expert to the packages that you know inside out.

One Off Consultancy
Show as an expert for everything you know, or just the one package you deeply care about. You're in control.
Feel like taking on larger projects? Work with clients who are looking for verified experts in your chosen ecosystem.
We maintain a specialist job board for Open Source. Find jobs that will let you pursue your passion.
Support Plans
If you're a maintainer, you can offer support plans for your packages. We handle the billing and contracts.

Payments made simple

International Payments a hassle? Waiting 90 days for a bank transfer? Fighting your way through procurement? Not anymore.

We make it easy to accept card payments immediately. We charge customers upfront and Stripe holds the funds until the request is marked as complete. Then you get paid within 5 days. Across over 100 countries.

Custom Links

Quickly create links for just about anything

You know how best to deliver your expertise. By default, we arrange a paid 30 minute video call to discuss your customer's issues and requirements. With Custom Links you can do so much more.

You: $100

Ringer: $10

Project: $5

Straight-forward and clear financials

We keep everything transparent. No complicated tiering structures, no banding based on hours worked.

Set your fee for a 30 minute call. When you a customer sends a request, we take payment and hold the money. Once you've had the call, we pay you, immediately.

If the issue requires more work, you can send a quote through Ringer for a project fee.

We charge a 15% fee directly to the user seeking help, and of that 15% we give 5% (33.33˙% of the 15%) back to the project that the request is regarding.

Donating your fee

We know that a high number of contributors can't accept payment for their work on open source projects.

We also allow you to set your payouts to go either directly to the project that you are providing support on, or to a number of open source foundations.
