great opportunity, great criteria!
Let me start with this: The Wikimedia Foundation’s not a typical workplace.
Lastly, we look for orientation towards scalability. The Wikimedia Foundation is a very small group of people. It achieves impact by working through and with large numbers of volunteers – the millions of people around the world who create 99.9% of the value in the Wikimedia projects. So in our hiring, we look for people who are oriented towards scale: who reflexively document and share information, who write easily and fluently, who take advantage of channels for mass communication and who instinctively organize and support the work of others.
