FSFE is hiring: project manager

am:

We are looking for a project manager to support our work to empower people to control technology.

There will be coordination with remote staff and volunteers, as well as travels to other countries.

About the FSFE

Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to control technology. Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives; and it is important that this technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental freedoms like freedom of speech, press and privacy.

The FSFE helps individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination. It enhances users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption, encourages people to use and develop Free Software, and provides resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe.

We are involved in legal, economic, political, and technical projects around Free Software (see our work areas and our campaigns).

In the Legal network we facilitate the discussion between legal and technical experts around Free Software legal and licensing questions. For this audience the FSFE also organises a yearly workshop for ~120 experts in this field.

In our work we build upon our volunteers in cooperation with other organisations, companies, and public administrations.
