The FSFE is hiring a Project Manager with a focus on communications and sustainability


We are looking for a person with a communications background to support us in our running and upcoming projects, including our upcoming digital sustainability campaign. The person will work full-time in our Berlin office.

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 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 many activities in the legal, economic, political and technical areas around Free Software. Our work is made possible by a community of volunteers, supporters, donors, and staff.

Main responsibilities



We are looking for a reliable, well-organised team player who wants to learn new things fast and contribute their creative communication skills to our volunteers and staff to make the world a better place for future generations.

You care about social and political change for the next generations. You want to help our staff and volunteers to explain younger audiences why it is important to have the freedom to use, study, share, and improve software. And you are interested to discover and promote the opportunities Free Software offers to tackle the climate crisis.

While raising awareness about the FSFE's work for software freedom on fast moving communications you want to work sustainably and keep the long-term focus on the FSFE’s mission.

The position is full time, 35 hours per week. At the moment the term is limited to 2 years. You will work with our team in the Berlin office, unless official regulations do not allow coming or recommend staying home.
