\nLocation: Remote\n\nSummary\n\nThe Wikipedia Library Team at Wikimedia Foundation is looking for a Software Engineer to work with us to add features and capabilities to the Wikipedia Library project as part of a new team.\n\nThe Wikipedia Library project allows approved users to freely access paywalled research databases to use as reference and background when editing articles on Wikipedia. The tool is primarily written in Django with several other Python libraries included.\n\nThe Community Programs team has envisioned and built the current version of the Wikipedia Library. We are seeking a Software Engineer to help maintain and expand the tool as part of a strategy to grow the tool’s usage and capabilities. This work will not, at first, directly interface with MediaWiki PHP code but will use Wikipedia APIs to enable some features including authentication and access. Working directly with MediaWiki PHP might be part of the team’s responsibilities in the future.\n\n\nThis is an ideal opportunity for a developer interested in working towards the Wikimedia Foundation mission who is primarily a Python developer. The application is in production so you’ll need an interest to understand the existing system. You’ll also be working with a Product Manager to identify, plan, and deliver new features. The team will start small with two engineers but could grow and take on even more projects.\n\n\nWe use open source tools as much as possible, and always open source our own work (https://github.com/WikipediaLibrary/TWLight). Python and Javascript make up most of our code, but we value using the right tool for the job. Developers at the Foundation have autonomy and responsibility, and can have a large and immediate impact on the future of the mission and the movement. Our world is vast and can be complicated, so we value communication, enthusiasm, and eagerness to learn as much as certificates or degrees.\n\n\nThis role is fully remote or located in our office in San Francisco, CA. Most of the leadership team on this project is remote.\n\n\nResponsibilities\n\n\n* Architect, develop, test, and deploy new features, improvements and upgrades to the Wikipedia Library used by the Wikimedia community\n\n* Partner with Foundation staff and volunteers on software design, development, testing and evaluation of potential technical solutions\n\n* Help identify and implement best practices in engineering processes across the team\n\n* Ensure positive and constructive discussions with the community and the Foundation\n\n* Work and communicate effectively within a small team distributed across multiple time zones\n\n* Work with the team’s Product Manager to scope and plan the technical work\n\n\n\n\n\nRequirements\n\n\n* Education and/or experience with Object-Oriented development using Python and Javascript\n\n* Front-end web application development skills\n\n* Experience with collaborative open source communities\n\n* Openness to working with a diverse and geographically distributed team\n\n* Strong written communication skills as our collaboration largely happens online\n\n* Bachelor’s degree in CS or related field or the equivalent in work related experience\n\n\n\n\n\nNice to Haves\n\nIn addition to the basic skills needed for being successful, these skills could set you apart from the pack!\n\n\n* Experience with MediaWiki development or or as a contributor to Wikimedia projects\n\n* Experience with object-oriented PHP development\n\n* Experience with Test-Driven Development and agile methodologies\n\n* Any other free/open source software development experience is highly welcome\n\n* Understanding of the free culture movement\n\n* Experience with machine learning or AI technologies\n\n* Experience with online community moderation or anti-harassment tools\n\n* Experience with integrating web products with commonly implemented library services, such as discovery, resource usage analytics, and EZProxy\n\n* Experience with integrating web products with commonly implemented in library standards and protocols, such as Z39.50, Z39.88, OAI, and COUNTER\n\n* Experience normalizing heterogeneous data sets and developing ETL tools\n\n\n\n\n\nShow us your stuff!\n\nIf you have any existing open source software that you've developed (these could be your own software or patches to other packages), please share the URLs for the source. Links to GitHub, etc. are exceptionally useful. This is optional and your candidacy will not be negatively impacted if you don’t have public work to share.\n\n\nAbout the Wikimedia Foundation\n\nThe Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit organization that supports and hosts Wikipedia and several other Wikimedia free knowledge sites. Every month, the Wikimedia sites are accessed by more than a billion unique devices. Wikipedia consists of more than 40 million articles across hundreds of languages. Every month, more than 70,000 volunteer editors contribute to Wikipedia. Based in San Francisco, California, the Wikimedia Foundation is an audited, 501(c)(3) non-profit that is funded primarily through donations and grants. It currently employs over 340 staff members.\n\n\nAt the Foundation, we build technology to help people everywhere access free knowledge, across all devices and in over 300 languages. We engineer privacy for our readers and editors so they can safely and securely explore our wikis. We create programs and initiatives to make knowledge freely available to more people in more parts of the world. We build new tools for the community of editors so their wiki can continue to improve and grow. Roughly a quarter of our budget goes to supporting the community that make the site possible, including through grantmaking programs that enable volunteers and enrich the information on the sites.\n\n\nThe Wikimedia Foundation is an equal opportunity employer, and we encourage people with a diverse range of backgrounds to apply.\n\n\nU.S. Benefits & Perks*\n\n\n\n* Fully paid medical, dental and vision coverage for employees and their eligible families (yes, fully paid premiums!)\n\n\n\n\n\n* The Wellness Program provides reimbursement for mind, body and soul activities such as fitness memberships, baby sitting, continuing education and much more\n\n\n\n\n\n* The 401(k) retirement plan offers matched contributions at 4% of annual salary\n\n\n\n\n\n* Flexible and generous time off - vacation, sick and volunteer days, plus 19 paid holidays - including the last week of the year.\n\n\n\n\n\n* Family friendly! 100% paid new parent leave for seven weeks plus an additional five weeks for pregnancy, flexible options to phase back in after leave, fully equipped lactation room.\n\n\n\n\n\n* For those emergency moments - long and short term disability, life insurance (2x salary) and an employee assistance program\n\n\n\n\n\n* Pre-tax savings plans for health care, child care, elder care, public transportation and parking expenses\n\n\n\n\n\n* Telecommuting and flexible work schedules available\n\n\n\n\n\n* Appropriate fuel for thinking and coding (aka, a pantry full of treats) and monthly massages to help staff relax\n\n\n\n\n\n* Great colleagues - diverse staff and contractors speaking dozens of languages from around the world, fantastic intellectual discourse, mission-driven and intensely passionate people\n\n\n\n\n\n*Eligible international workers' benefits are specific to their location and dependent on their employer of record \n\n#Salary and compensation\n No salary data published by company so we estimated salary based on previous jobs related to Developer, Engineer and Digital Nomad jobs that are similar:\n\n $60,000 — $115,000/year\n

# How do you apply?\n\nThis job post has been closed by the poster, which means they probably have enough applicants now. Please do not apply.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Please reference you found the job on Remote OK, this helps us get more companies to post here, thanks!

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. You should also NEVER have to pay to buy equipment which they then pay you back for later. Also never pay for trainings you have to do. Those are scams! NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. A good idea is to check the domain name for the site/email and see if it's the actual company's main domain name. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! Read more to avoid scams. When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site. Remote OK accepts no liability or responsibility as a consequence of any reliance upon information on there (external sites) or here.
