We are looking for a Software Engineer (m/f/d) to join our Wikibase Suite Team. The position is based in Berlin and we offer hybrid workplace options.
About the position:
The Wikibase Suite is a software suite to collaboratively curate linked data that users can install on their infrastructure (also in the form of OCI container images). It is used by libraries, galleries, research groups, and the public sector alike. For example, the European Commission uses Wikibase for information around funded projects and their beneficiaries.
You will be developing open source software that puts user needs first and increases users’ satisfaction. At Wikimedia Deutschland we work towards a future in which people share the power to collect and organize the data that shapes humanity’s understanding of the world.
What we offer:
Technologies we use:
Most of our server side code is written in PHP and for version control we use Git. We use Vue.js and TypeScript for our modern frontends. We also keep migrating our legacy code into these and newer technologies. Also, testing is important to us; we use testing frameworks and practice continuous integration across our projects. We currently use Docker to provide Wikibase Suite to the users.
Knowledge and experience in these technologies is not a requirement. We believe they all can be learned on the job and WMDE, your team, and your line manager will support you in this learning. We list only a few of them here.
Then apply now! Send us your detailed application documents (Resume & Motivational Letter (yes, we read them) via our job portal. Our HR team will be happy to answer your questions. We kindly ask you to refrain from application photos and information on date of birth, marital status and parents. We look forward to hearing from you!
