|Organisation:||Wikimedia Deutschland e. V.|
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 UX team, based in Berlin, we are looking for a permanent UX Researcher (m/f/d), full-time or part-time, as soon as possible.
Wikibase is the software underlying Wikidata, the world’s largest linked open data project. The Wikibase Suite team is working on expanding the availability and diversity of linked open knowledge accessible to the world by providing a self-hosted version of Wikibase. It is used by both individuals and large institutions to create their own linked open knowledge bases, tailored to the unique needs of their communities. Wikibase Suite is currently used by GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums), research groups, and the public sector alike (Wikibase Showcase, EU Commission and Lingua Libre announcements).
As the UX Researcher for Wikibase Suite, you will be part of an interdisciplinary product team (your user focus) and the UX team (your support structure and community of peers). For more information, check the strategic direction developed for the Wikibase Ecosystem and our vision of a Linked Open Data Web.
The mission of the UX team is to deliver high quality open source tools that empower users to contribute to the Wikimedia movement, regardless of their background or ability. The role will report to the Head of Design and is part of the design team that currently counts six total UX designers and researchers.
