It is really great to hear that you want to help out!
But as you mentioned you don't have any packages in the AUR. How do we know
you qualify for the job ? Did you do anything Arch related ? Do you have any
project you work on ?

Best would be to take a bunch of packages in the AUR and show that you are
capable of creating and maintaining packages.

put binary packages in community that we have not created ourselves. All
kind of bad things may happen one day if we start with that, as you may
