*About the humainki project*
Do you have a passion for social-good technology? Humaniki is a
project that generates and tracks statistics about who is
represented in Wikipedia, helping to address diversity gaps with
data tools. This project is a Wikimedia Foundation-funded grant,
being built in collaboration with the Wikimedia community. Let's
make the data diversity dashboard and API that Wikimedians deserve.

*Role: Community UX Researcher*
The role of community UX Researcher is to facilitate the co-design
process of creating humaniki. You will identify community groups
with whom to partner, elicit their product needs, and synthesize it
into a design specification. Liaising between the community and the
humaniki engineering team, in multiple rounds of development, you
troubleshoot and make decisions to ensure the tool is effective.
Finally, you'll communicate the project's development through blog
posts, online trainings and other media.
*Role: Frontend Software Engineer*
Full Job Description:
The role of the software engineer is to build the humaniki web-app
in collaboration with the lead engineer. After familiarizing
yourself with the technical history of the project, and receiving
the design specification from our community UX researcher you will
give input into the stack and architecture. You develop web and
data-visualization features and make them ready for user testing, as
part of an iterative development cycle. Supporting a launch of the
tool, you monitor and fix bugs to make sure the application is
robust for users.
Make a great day,
