About us

WeMove Europe is an independent and values-based organisation that seeks to build people power to transform Europe in the name of our community, future generations and the planet. We are people from all walks of life, who call Europe our home – whether we were born in Europe or elsewhere.

Our job is to move a community of a million people across Europe on issues that matter - including the climate emergency, migrant rights, workers rights, better governance, and more. We know this number of people also needs to grow and diversify further so we can represent a strong critical mass that can bring about change in Europe.

We work with staff in 10 countries who connect digitally every day and in person periodically.

  • A passion for organising and maintaining files and archives

  • The ability to quickly learn new software and online tools

  • A collaborative working style: a good team player who’s happy to provide support on tasks that may not be glamorous or exciting

  • A service-oriented mind, ready to step in where it is most needed

  • Confidence in interacting with partners and service providers in different languages

  • Native-level German speaking and writing

  • Fluency in English to a degree that you can work in an English-speaking environment

  • Cultural sensitivity and ability to work with an intercultural, decentralised team

  • Availability for some travelling in Europe

We work with staff in 10 countries who connect digitally every day and in person periodically.

About the Role

You will be part of the core tech team, a group of people making an extra effort to supercharge our campaigning with technology and responsible for properly supporting our online campaigning activities.

The role is made of three crucial components: 1) communicating with other team members and supporting them with technical knowledge and expertise, 2) working on a full cycle of implementation of custom tools (incl. specification & design , coding, integration, testing, maintenance and improvements), 3) understanding and monitoring our services and intervening when needed.

Roughly 70-80% of your time will be spent on longer term projects - building new tactics for campaigns, developing infrastructure tools, integrations and other improvements to our stack. There will also be space for learning here.

Around 20-30% of your time, depending on specific moment in time, will be spent on support and maintenance, handling help requests and interventions. Those might vary from simple technical questions up to designing and supporting an ad-hoc online campaigning tactic together with a group of campaigners.

It’s also up to you to shape our infrastructure - our culture is based on the “doer's attitude” and hacker culture. If you can get your hands dirty with diagnosing and solving the problem and you can convince others that your solution is the right one without going into flame war, you’re one of us.

Our stack

We use many different tools - and do not expect you to know them all, but great if you do! We invest in Open Source, and work hard to protect the privacy of our members.

  • PHP, Ruby, Python, SQL, JavaScript

  • MySQL, PostgreSQL, AMQP

  • Bare metal, VPS, Ansible, Docker, CD/CI

  • ActionKit (campaigning tool), Stripe, Twilio, PayPal

About you

  • Have excellent communication skills

  • Have Ruby/Python/PHP/SQL/ReactJS/jQuery (at least two of) programming experience (3+ years)

  • Be open to getting your hands dirty with other tools and programming languages than those listed above

  • Be comfortable with Linux servers

  • Be excited about online campaigning technology, be curious about what new tactics and techniques can be employed for social change

  • Have good written and verbal communication skills in English and the ability to work well with a variety of personalities and cultures. Any of the languages that WeMove Europe speaks in is a plus.

  • Feel commitment to being accountable for results with a strong focus on getting stuff done.

  • Have the ability to think independently and make decisions, but also take part in group decision making.

  • Enjoy collaborative approach to work.

  • Care about and believe in WeMove Europe’s mission

The following skills/experience are considered a bonus:

  • Have previous experience in supporting fundraising systems and processes from tech side

  • Know something or everything about statistics and data science

  • Have experience with ActionKit

Terms and conditions

  • Permanent contract based on the labour code of your country, starting with a 6 month probation period

  • Salary range: dependant on your experience level and location

  • Location: anywhere in Europe

  • Working from home office or co-working space of your choice

We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace which is why people from communities that experience discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity; women; people with disabilities; and LGBTQ+ people are especially encouraged to apply. We do not share the implicit belief that techies necessarily have to be very young and encourage also people who left their twenties and thirties behind to apply.​
