Mattermost Plugin Bounty Program

Mattermost has launched a plugin bounty program to work with our integrations community to create highly-requested plugins.

The bounty per plugin ranges from $1,000 to $2,000. The period for submissions is March 16 - May 16, 2019.

If you’re interested joining the program,

  • Sign in to, join the Contributors team and direct message @jason.blais, or
  • Email jason[at] with the subject “Mattermost Plugin Bounty Program”


Eligibility is limited to countries we can pay the bounty to. Wires to notable banks are preferred, but other options exist. Please contact us to ensure eligibility.

Moreover, submissions must meet the criteria specified in “Open Projects” section. See below for further details.

Paid staff or hiring candidates on a paid audition are not eligible to participate.


Multiple submissions are considered on a first-come first-serve basis. If the first submission meets the bounty criteria for a plugin, the first submission receives the bounty.

If multiple people are interested working on the same plugin, we encourage people to work together. The bounty is allocated equally to all contributors. However, Mattermost reserves the right to split the bounty unequally, for instance, when one of the contributors completed majority of the work.

At all times, Mattermost reserves the right to decide if a submission receives a bounty, but we aim to set clear expectations and strive for transparency and fairness throughout the process.

To submit your plugin for a bounty

  • Publish it in a GitHub repository licensed under Apache 2.0 or MIT
  • Share the link via
    • direct message to @jason.blais in, or
    • email to jason[at] with the subject “Mattermost Plugin Bounty Program”

Mattermost may ask you to transfer the repository under the organization for long-term maintenance. If so, we’ll take steps to ensure you are credited for your work and recognized as the original creator. For an example project transferred to Mattermost, see

@jasonblais Quick questions:

  1. For Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, there doesn't seem to be an API for supporting the on-prem version. See this. How should that part be handled?

  2. For Skype for Business, I looked at this for the API. It is in developer preview and isn't supported for production usage outside (and it might never be supported for production usage outside of Microsoft Teams). How to proceed in that case?

Thank you @checkaayush for your interest!

  1. Good observation. I'm not sure - though we have someone working on the on-prem version so we'll see if they find an approach
  2. Some progress has been made with skype Web SDK, more details here:

And thanks for your interest on the GitLab plugin! Two notes:

  1. Please reach out to me to ensure eligibility - we want to make sure we're able to pay the bounty for you! You can either
    • Sign in to, join the Contributors team and direct message @jason.blais, or
    • Email jason[at] with the subject “Mattermost Plugin Bounty Program”
  2. Another community member shared interest about the GitLab plugin as well. You could build one yourself, or collaborate with @manland - if you're open to and interested collaborating, I've created a public channel to discuss the plugin here:

Thanks again for your interest 👍
