At Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. we help create, collect and distribute free knowledge.
In 2004, volunteer Wikipedia activists founded the non-profit association Wikimedia Deutschland in Berlin, which now consists of over 100,000 members and 160 full-time staff.
Free knowledge leads to a fairer world. Wikipedia is the most important online knowledge collection of our time. The German Wikipedia alone records almost 1 billion page views per month for a total of 2.6 million articles. We – Wikimedia Deutschland e. V. – support the volunteers of Wikipedia and its sister projects, develop free software, such as Wikidata, and advocate for free access to knowledge, the opening of education and research, and more common good orientation in data policy.
For our team Engineering Management, based in Berlin, we are looking for a permanent Engineering Manager Wikidata for Wikimedia Projects (m/f/d), full-time or part-time, as soon as possible.
In this role, you will be responsible for the Wikidata for Wikimedia Projects engineering development and team leadership. Wikidata is a free, collaboratively created knowledge graph. In 2012, we started the project at Wikimedia Deutschland; in 2022 we celebrated its 10th birthday. Amongst others, Wikidata stores important specified Wikimedia data for Wikipedia in a central location and helps to distribute the maintenance workload across language and project boundaries.
From its beginning, Wikidata was intended to support other Wikimedia projects and, today, Wikidata and other Wikimedia projects are inextricably linked. It is the overarching goal of the Wikidata for Wikimedia Projects team that we strengthen this mutually beneficial relationship and ensure its long-term sustainability. You will be a founding member of this team.
