I ensure the website is professional, up-to-date, and functioning as intended

A few questions to Bruno Marafini on what it means to be the Technology Officer of the Board.

What do you work on as the Tech Officer? What skills are required in these works?

I am responsible for the EIT Digital Alumni’s website management which is the collection of processes used to ensure the website is professional, up-to-date, and functioning as intended. It encompasses general maintenance, security, and long-term development of the website, as well as organizing content delivery and marketing strategy together with the team. 


What have you achieved in your mandate 2021-2023 as the Tech Officer?

Together with Damiano we managed to better lighten the website in terms of content and speed - together with some major security bugs which were preventing us from resetting passwords or adding new users to the database. At the moment there is the need to integrate a payment platform as Stripe in order to be able to handle payments for future events in a better way.


What could you have done better or differently during your mandate?

From my perspective there would have been the need for more interaction between Damiano and myself in order to better understand and address specific issues, which due to business reasons was practically impossible. On top of that, I personally think there is the need for more advanced tools and paid plugins in order to better manage content delivery and various integrations.
