You will join a small, strong, experienced team focused on effectiveness—a key annual plan goal. Your work will help to support and extend the capabilities of the 50+ members of Wikimedia’s Communications department. You will project manage cross-team initiatives and support our collective work, liaising regularly with and across the Communications department’s teams, and acting as a supportive project partner to writers, designers, marketers, PR/media, and movement communications specialists.
This is a remote position working with colleagues in the USA, the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Collaborating closely with the Senior Manager of Program Management and assisting the department’s project managers on various projects, initiatives, and campaigns

  • Triaging incoming work requests in Asana, ensuring that projects are picked up by appropriate teams and individuals, assisting with, and tracking their progress to completion

  • Creating project roadmaps, assisting with negotiating project scopes, establishing project team norms, helping to define team roles and responsibilities and decision-making frameworks, identifying stakeholders, scheduling regular project meetings, and determining and clearly communicating roadblocks, challenges, and dependencies.

  • Supporting healthy team dynamics and a culture that welcomes diverse perspectives while driving multiple, smaller projects to completion


  • Documenting project work and running retros to identify best practices that lead to dependable, successful, on-time completion

  • Tracking and reporting relevant qualitative and quantitative metrics

  • Ensuring individuals and teams understand their commitments to goals and to each other; upholding a culture of belonging and accountability

  • Helping project teams balance challenging work and workloads against the tendency toward scope creep and perfectionism
