Wikimedia envisions a world where the sum total of human knowledge is available to everyone.
The Wikimedia Foundation, the San Francisco-based nonprofit home of Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and other free educational projects, serves as the hub of a global movement of hundreds of thousands of contributors collaborating to collect and share the sum of all human knowledge with the world. Wikipedia, the most prominent of the Wikimedia projects, comprises some 48 million articles in nearly 300 languages and is viewed more than 15 billion times each month from around the world.
The Public Policy team works to establish and defend a legal and regulatory landscape that is essential to Wikipedia and other free educational projects and to enable the Foundation to advance its mission. We are looking for an experienced public policy professional who can run campaigns on crucial issues for our mission, like copyright, intermediary liability, freedom of expression, access to knowledge, privacy, and censorship. The immediate focus is on United States law and policy affecting the open internet with the aim of raising Wikimedia’s profile and influence in debates that affect the ability of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects to function as sources of free knowledge.
The senior public policy manager will be one of two such managers on the Public Policy team, located within the Legal Department, and will work closely with outside digital rights advocates and Wikimedia affiliates in the U.S. and internationally.

Develop proposals, including educational, legislative and regulatory initiatives, to support free knowledge consistent with the Wikimedia Guiding Principles.
Analyze existing and proposed laws to determine how they may impact the Wikimedia projects and users.
Alongside the international Wikimedia community and in coalition with other allies, build and coordinate campaigns on critical issues.
Write blog posts, op-eds, position statements, and other material discussing how different policy issues affect the free knowledge movement and Wikimedia projects in specific.
Present our policy initiatives at conferences, meetings with lawmakers and regulators or other influencers, workshops; brief and educate key Foundation and Wikimedia constituencies.
Train key staff and volunteers to educate people about our work and mission.
With other members of the Public Policy team or on your own, work collaboratively with other teams in the Wikimedia Foundation.
