Both jobs are under the supervision of the Board. Through internal communication channels (Telegram app, mailing list) notify weekly their work as well as doubts or problems that arise. Also, each one manages a spreadsheet, visible by the Board, which indicates the dedicated time each day to the different tasks. They also join, when it is necessary, the online meetings of the Board, participating in the discussion of ideas, projects or problems, but without the ability to vote or decide.

On the other hand, both are coordinated daily, via e-mail or Telegram app, and at least once a week they schedule a videocall to discuss and develop the closest activities and define the processes for future activities. The programming, both of activities and communication, is carried out in an internal calendar, thanks to which they organize their weekly activity.
