Eligible Specialists will be:

  • Easily approachable and readily available via Slack
  • Great mentors - helpful and positive influences on their language communities
  • Reliable: their lyrics will be perfect across all four areas of contribution: Transcribe, Format, Sync, and Structure
  • Mission-focused: they will prioritize the missions when contributing
