The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for an experienced organizer of international community events to oversee the vision, strategy and execution of key Wikimedia meetings. We are seeking someone who understands the purposes, challenges, and opportunities of events. We are seeking a team leader to connect different functions and roles across events. The team manager will also explore the opportunities that events may provide and bring them together with a common vision and strategy. This role requires flexibility to travel internationally several times during the year.
The newly formed Events team will bring together event managers currently working in different teams: the organizer of Wikimania, the Wikimedia Hackathon, the Wikimedia Tech Conference, and the support to the Wikimedia Conference and a series of regional events. This team will sit in the Community Engagement department and work closely with Finance and Administration.
This job is great if…
- You have experience in organizing an event
- You have experience in managing the team and budget
- You like people 😄
- You are detailed yet flexible
