Developer Advocate

Can you envision yourself applying your technical and communication skills to make a positive impact in the world? Come work with our team of Developer Advocates, Technical Writers, and Site Reliability Engineers in Technical Engagement at the Wikimedia Foundation! We are dedicated to supporting developers within and outside of the Wikimedia Movement who create and use Open Source solutions to technical problems. You are comfortable sharing ideas, providing guidance and technical support, speaking in public, and communicating via asynchronous channels (mailing lists/forums/IRC). Our teams work remotely and so can you!

The Wikimedia Foundation is passionate about making it easier for people to use Wikimedia APIs and to contribute to the numerous Free and Open Source software (FOSS) projects that the Wikimedia movement relies on to power their wikis. Our Developer Advocates provide technical support; run workshops; produce sample code, tutorials,  and other documentation; and help to create a fun, inclusive and productive environment for our international technical communities.
