The Kontent.ai MVP team consists of six valued professionals who educate the community and work closely with Kontent.ai teams to improve the platform. Who are they, and what can they do for you?

In this article, I’ll introduce the MVP team, explain the selection process of MVPs, and outline the most popular activities done by MVPs throughout the last year.
What is the MVP program?
The MVP stands for Most Valued Professional. The MVP program has been around for a long time, and for us at Kontent.ai, it’s always been a great way to recognize and award the most active members of our community. The MVPs are a team of passionate experts who are happy to share experiences from building and maintaining projects using Kontent.ai and other related tools. They ensure the community is welcoming and nurturing.
The selection process
At the end of every year, the MVP committee sits down and discusses each nominated MVP candidate. And to be honest, it’s no rocket science. We want every team member to be passionate about innovations, improvements, and user experience, as well as be eager to share the lessons learned from their projects with the Kontent.ai community. Everything else really comes naturally. Each member of the committee gets one vote, and even though we honor democratic principles, so far, the vote has always been unanimous.
