Summary:


The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for a Product Manager for MediaWiki.  MediaWiki is a free software open source wiki package written in PHP, originally for use on Wikipedia. It is now also used by several other projects of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and by many other wikis, including this website, the home of MediaWiki.  MediaWiki is an extremely powerful, scalable software and a feature-rich wiki implementation that uses PHP to process and display data stored in a database, such as MySQL.  Pages use MediaWiki's wikitext format, so that users without knowledge of XHTML or CSS can edit them easily.


As the Product Manager, you will build roadmaps and goals in collaboration with partners and ensure that progress is made towards those goals. You will work closely with members from many departments including Engineering, Communications, Legal, and Community Engagement. You will also be responsible for ensuring that communications about the team’s work and project status are shared with the Foundation’s various teams and the community in a timely manner.


This is an amazing opportunity that involves coordinating established technologies and collaborative communities around the globe and will require both hard and soft skills. It will be very challenging, demanding, and extremely rewarding!



Description:



  • Work with key partners across the Foundation to build and execute strategies and goals for the MediaWiki software.

  • Build and track progress towards achievements for our long term road maps.

  • Communicate goals, statuses, and findings throughout the development process to internal and external community partners.

  • Identify blockers and other issues to senior management.

Summary


The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for a pragmatic, detail-oriented Data Analyst to help drive informed product decisions that enable our communities to achieve our Vision: a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.


Data Analysts are the experts within the organization on measuring what is going on. Their analysis and insight help product analysts and managers envision, scope, and refine features, products and services that hundreds of millions of people around the world use.


You will join the Search & Discovery Department, which is focussed on improving in-site search on all Wikimedia across all platforms, with the view of launching an open-source knowledge engine for the entire web.


Description



  • Work closely with product managers to build out and maintain detailed on-going analysis of the usage and performance of  Wikimedia’s search and information discovery products.

  • Write database queries and code to analyze Wikipedia usage volume, user behaviour and performance data to identify opportunities and areas for improvement.

  • Work with other data analysts to contribute to the development and ongoing maintenance of the department’s dashboards, ensuring they are up-to-date, accurate, fair and focussed representations of the efficacy of the products.

  • Communicate clearly and responsively your findings to a range of departmental, organisational, volunteer and public stakeholders, informing and educating them.

Summary


Wikimedia's JavaScript code is executed over half a billion times a day on hundreds of millions of devices. If you can drop our page load time 100ms, you'll have saved our annual visitors from waiting an aggregate 617 years.


Speed is Wikipedia's killer feature. ('Wiki' means 'quick' in Hawaiian.) As the nonprofit organization that runs Wikipedia and its sister projects, we want to create value for readers and editors by making it possible to retrieve and render content at the speed of thought, from anywhere in the world, on the broadest range of devices and connection profiles.


If you are excited by this mission, we want to hear from you. The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for a web performance engineer to join a new team dedicated to making Wikipedia fast.


Description



  • Work in a small team.

  • Set standards for performance and responsiveness across Wikimedia engineering.

  • Leverage new web APIs and network protocol extensions to speed up content delivery and interface responsiveness across mobile and desktop.

  • Develop benchmarking and observability tools that help developers understand the performance characteristics of their code.

  • Curate and maintain a set of key performance indicators for core features.

  • Profile, analyze and optimize the performance of existing code.

Summary


We are looking for an exceptional engineer excited to work on search. You will help maintain and improve a search infrastructure that serves 890 million full text searches and billions of find-as-you-type searches every month on Wikipedia and its sister projects. In the process you'll be in the vanguard of open source search, advancing what is possible with open source tools.


Description


We're comfortable that the current search implementation (CirrusSearch and Elasticsearch) is a platform worth building on. Now it's time to build on it by:



  • Measuring user perceived result relevance and performance

  • Experimenting with improvements to search queries, rankings, and algorithms

  • Improve methods by which the communities we serve can help improve the quality of the search index

  • Properly support multilingual wikis like Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, and meta.wikimedia.org

  • Work closely with desktop, mobile web, iOS app, and Android app teams to customize search for each experience's differences while still ensuring all platforms benefit from shared infrastructure improvements

Summary


Wikipedia is where the world turns to understand almost any topic — The Wikimedia Foundation is the nonprofit that operates Wikipedia with a small staff.  We are looking for a great engineer who wants to modernize the infrastructure underlying Wikipedia with distributed storage, services and REST interfaces.  If this excites you we welcome you to join us.


Description



  • Work with a small team of four.

  • Build a fully replicated storage service powering both internal services and our public REST content API (https://github.com/gwicke/restbase).

  • Collaborate with other teams on the development of services for tasks like job queues, notifications, math rendering, citation data retrieval or content classification.

  • Use the best available tools & languages for each task. Currently we work a lot with Node.js, Cassandra, Kafka and ElasticSearch, but also use other tools and languages like Python, Java, C, C++ and PHP where it makes sense. Go or Scala could be options in the future.

  • Build automated tests and thorough monitoring for the services being developed, and help package the services for internal and third party distribution.

  • Change the world for more than half a billion people every month.
