Wikimedia Deutschland – Gesellschaft zur Förderung Freien Wissens e. V. is a non-profit organisation based in Berlin, Germany. With more than 80 employees and about 35.000 members, it is the oldest and largest of more than 40 independent chapters of the international Wikimedia movement. The most well-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.
We are looking for a Software Developer 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.
What we are offering you
Our development teams are cross-functional, self-organizing and highly autonomous. No single team leaders or middle management. You’ll be working directly with the product owner. Among other things, testing, refactoring, and pair programming are encouraged. We’re constantly trying to improve the way we work.
All software we develop is Open Source, and we contribute back to various projects we use. Many of our components are published in a format that allows reuse outside of our own projects.
