About Helpful Engineering

Helpful Engineering is an international, open-source community incubator focused on mobilizing people to help solve the Covid-19 pandemic and other critical issues. With thousands of volunteers worldwide, we support projects through innovations in engineering, community resources, software, and manufacturing. Most of the projects are focused on finding solutions to fix the lack of products used by healthcare professionals, including hardware and software, but also non-technical products like surgical masks.

We have engineers and doctors all around the world who are producing ventilators, protective equipment, websites, and systems to organize volunteers to assist their communities and medical workers. They are making heroic efforts to produce products in time to help the outbreak.

Volunteer Position Description & Responsibilities

There is a big emphasis to understand the potential interest from users and better yet secure orders. This is very important to have to secure funding from investors, otherwise we can't understand how many ventilators we need to produce or have confidence that people will want to use our device. A sales person in the medical device world could help by establishing contact with people with the aim of securing orders.

A person with good communication skills who is happy to fire off lots of emails to potential users/buyers or investors to gather interest in the project to help us understand who would/would not like to place potential orders and our initial market size. Ideally, we want somebody who has experience in a sales/communication/commercial role ideally in the medical industry, even more ideally with existing contacts.


Our organization is organic, transparent, and follows the principles of open source and effective altruism. Helpful Engineering expects all volunteers to adopt a professional attitude and be respectful of their fellow volunteers, which includes politeness, punctuality, giving notice, and communicating openly and transparently their work and progresses.
