Wikimedia Germany is a non-profit organization committed to promoting open knowledge. We support projects for the creation, promotion and distribution of free content. One of the most important projects is Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. Wikimedia Germany has a rapidly growing office in Berlin, with currently 19 employees.


Early 2012, Wikimedia Germany e.V. will start the development of a new and ambitous project that will change the Web once again. We are currently looking for a number of people to help us with realizing this goal. The team will be based in Berlin, Germany, and the project aims to be implemented in one year. After completion of the project, we expect many more interesting software projects inspired by this one, so follow-up projects might be possible. In all positions it is a plus to understand Wikipedia and collaborative community processes and communities in general, to speak English and further languages, and to appreciate the scale of a project like Wikipedia.
