Wiki Education Software Developer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

10 days ago

As Wiki Education’s Software Developer, you will work with our Chief Technology Officer to build and maintain the Wiki Education Dashboard, an open source web app built with React and Ruby on Rails that empowers thousands of instructors, librarians, and others across the globe to organize newcomer-friendly Wikipedia editing projects and track the contributions of these new Wikipedians. You’ll create new features that help people do more and better work on Wikipedia, Wikidata, and other free educational projects. You’ll talk with the Wiki Education staff, instructors, and students who rely on your work. You’ll fix bugs, solve user experience problems, make accessibility improvements, and remove performance bottlenecks. You’ll contribute patches to the upstream projects we depend on. You’ll provide technical mentorship to interns and volunteer code contributors. You’ll refactor, write tests, monitor deployments, and ensure that we maintain a livable, newcomer-friendly codebase. Sometimes you’ll pair program, or work on WordPress and Salesforce, or use any of a wide variety of technical tools in the wider Wikimedia ecosystem. With the rest of the Wiki Education team, you’ll help make Wikipedia a more reliable and comprehensive resource for the millions of people across the world who rely on it every day.

Background

Wikipedia is an incredible community and a valuable educational resource. But the experience for new users has fallen behind, holding back Wikipedia’s potential to achieve its goal: a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. There remains a large gap between traditional knowledge institutions — universities, libraries, archives, museums — and Wikipedia. Wiki Education’s mission is to bridge that gap, finding ways to bring new contributors and new knowledge to Wikipedia. As a small nonprofit with a technology stack outside of Wikipedia’s own legacy infrastructure, we have the freedom to experiment with new ideas, iterate quickly, and tackle big problems. We’ll build great free and open source technology, nurture a vibrant development community, and — if we can pull it off — save Wikipedia by supporting the next generation of contributors.

Minimum qualifications

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong frontend JavaScript skills
  • Strong HTML and CSS skills
  • Experience with React
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails

Bonus qualifications

  • Experience deploying and scaling Rails apps
  • Experience maintaining open source software projects with many contributors
  • Experience mentoring junior developers
  • Visual and UI design expertise
  • i18n and/or a11y expertise
  • Salesforce configuration experience
  • Experience with payment systems
  • WordPress development experience
  • Wikipedia editing experience
  • Familiarity with the US higher education system

About the position

We’re open to candidates with a range of experience levels. The ideal candidate will be a senior-level developer with extensive experience designing and building modern web applications; junior- and mid-level developers with a strong foundation in JavaScript and Ruby will also be considered. The position is full-time and remote.

Trips to San Francisco for Wiki Education all-staff meetings are required twice per year. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States.

Salary

$80,000 – $110,000 (depending on experience), with generous benefits
