Wikimedia Deutschland – Gesellschaft zur Förderung Freien Wissens e. V. is a non-profit organisation based in Berlin, Germany. With more than 100 employees and about 65.000 members, it is the oldest and largest of more than 40 independent chapters of the international Wikimedia movement. The best known Wikimedia project, the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia, is used by millions of people across the world every day and is continuously updated and improved by millions of users.
Wikimedia Deutschland furthers these ideals even beyond the free encyclopedia: It is our aim to establish and promote the creation, collection, and distribution of free knowledge in all parts of society. Our objective is to create a world in which the sum of all human knowledge is freely accessible for everyone. The main focus of our activities is the support of volunteers, the development of technology and software, public education, and cooperation with cultural and scientific institutions. We grant scholarships to volunteers working for Wikimedia projects and we provide technical support. On both the national and EU-level, we are advocating a legal framework which allows for free knowledge to become part of our everyday life.
We are looking for a Full Stack Developer (m/f/d) to join one of our agile development teams in our office at the heart of Berlin. You will either be working on the software behind the Wikidata project or on the software that powers our fundraising application and possible cross-department projects.
We’re interested in candidates from any background, as long as you have a solid understanding of object oriented languages and basic experience with web development.
