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 37 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, and the cooperation with cultural and scientific institutions. Furthermore, we advocate on both the national and EU-level a legal framework which allows for free knowledge to become part of our everyday life.
In order to promote these aims, we are currently seeking a capable and motivated Head of Product Management to join our Software & Development Department in the heart of Berlin. Our product portfolio includes:
- Wikidata, the platform for linked structured data
- Feature development for MediaWiki, the platform that powers the different Wikipedia projects around the world
- our Fundraising application and support for various software projects coming from other departments within Wikimedia Deutschland.
This role will report to the Director of Software Development & Engineering and be responsible for the Product, Program and Project Managers.
