Wikimedia Germany is a non-profit organization committed to promoting open knowledge. We support projects for the creation, promotion and distribution of free content. One of the most important projects is Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. Wikimedia Germany has a rapidly growing office in Berlin, with currently 19 employees.

Early 2012, Wikimedia Germany e.V. will start the development of a new and ambitous project that will change the Web once again. We are currently looking for a number of people to help us with realizing this goal. The team will be based in Berlin, Germany, and the project aims to be implemented in one year. After completion of the project, we expect many more interesting software projects inspired by this one, so follow-up projects might be possible. In all positions it is a plus to understand Wikipedia and collaborative community processes and communities in general, to speak English and further languages, and to appreciate the scale of a project like Wikipedia.

Wikimedia community communication (m/f)

The community liaison will support the communication between the Wikidata team and the Wikimedia communities. The person will collect the feedback of the communities, present and represent their concerns and ideas, monitor relevant channels, and answer them if possible, or support the Wikidata team in their responses. A track record of their involvement with the Wikimedia communities needs to be presented. We are looking for a person that has earned the trust of the communities, and that will keep their loyalties not with the Wikidata team but with the goals of the Wikimedia communities in general. Further languages beyond English are a strong plus, especially German due to the location of the project.

Applications can be send to and more information about the position are available from Denny Vrandecic. Applications should be sent in before December 1.
