In the course of doing data validation in the final quarter of 2017, Bugcrowd engineers identified areas where submission data was not correctly updating. Because we value transparency, we have outlined the resolved changes below:
2017 was a fantastic year of growth for our researcher community and program owners alike, with 32% more submissions rewarded, a 25% increase to the average reward and 61% more total rewarded submissions! In 2017, 145 Researchers qualified into MVP status, and earned close to 44% of our 2017 total payouts, with a rewarded submission total of over $3 million!
In celebration of its upcoming one year anniversary, we are thrilled to formally announce the Bugcrowd Researcher Council. Begun as a pilot program in November of 2016, Bugcrowd's Researcher Success Team identified 5 Researchers to invite to a special kind of pilot feedback program; since then, the program has grown 200% and the Council members have given their valuable feedback on a variety of implemented improvements, including the Researcher Dashboard and the current ongoing improvements to tokenized search.
