This page provides a view of the work, people involved and undergoing projects of the Website Design and Development position at POST as well as access to some useful resources for POST employees.
POST’s Website it’s a critical channel of communication for our Mission and work, last year alone it served an average of almost 900 unique website visitors a day, received a total of 1,819 online donations and stopped an average of 266 daily web attacks, nearly half of which were considered ‘complex’.
2018 Website Stats
Soon POST employees will be able to submit tickets to report any issues with the website directly from the website while in the POST office.
Just use the ‘Feedback‘ button at the bottom right corner of any page on the website to send your feedback. This button will only be available from within POST’s office.
To keep up with the fast paced growth of POST and its online needs the Web Design and Development manager position has evolved from that of a webmaster and developer to a project manager and team lead.
Using an Agile Project Management methodology and a team of developers, designers and experts we continue to find ways to innovate and keep up with the velocity and volume demands of POST’s growth.

While we work hard to keep our website’s downtime to under 1% you can use the page status.openspacetrust.org to check if our site is down or you are having issues with your Internet connection. The Status Page is independent from the website but don’t forget to bookmark it since you’ll need the direct link if you are unable to reach POST website in the first place.
