Preferred Qualifications: 

  • Experience developing go-to-market and/or business development plans
  • Lived experience in Internet environments facing challenges emerging from electricity and bandwidth limitations, censorship, surveillance, and other oppressive, anti-open-internet activities
  • The specialist should demonstrate enthusiasm for Open Source software, excitement to learn, and commitment to freedom of speech and journalist safety.

Scope of work:

This is a paid position on a 6-month full-time contract. The expected Level of Effort for this position is 40 hours per week contributing to activities such as the following: 

  • Develop a marketing and communications strategy to promote open source tools to target users
  • Support development of communications materials articulating the tool's technical features, successes to-date, and future development goals
  • Develop and implement a strategy to improve tool search rank/SEO for keywords, including through updating and managing tool website and social media channels
  • In collaboration with tool leadership, develop a funding strategy to secure grant funding and/or services contract for the tool team
  • Support organizational capacity building and sustainability planning
  • Update and manage the website and documentation related to the open source tool
