The NGI Forward 2 project, part of the topic Next Generation Internet - An Open Internet Initiative is a EC Horizon 2020 project focused on developing a more human-centric Internet: supporting values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy, as well as giving users the ability to help create an Internet they trust. We are focused on understanding people’s own perspectives on the Internet and desired futures for it to inform long term strategies and policies. We intend to convene a large online conversation in which people discuss these issues, performing continuous ethnographic analysis on it.

We are looking to hire online community managers to collaborate with us on this project. This would run for circa two years, starting May 2019, on a part-time basis ( approx 20% of your time or about 8 hrs/week).

Requirements:

  • Experience desirable, but not strictly necessary if you are an experienced participant in online communities.
  • Fluent in English and one/ more of the following: French or Polish or German or Italian
  • Able to work part-time without set hours, during the day or night - strong time management skills.
  • Good writing skills - able to get to, and make, points succinctly. Able to advance a conversation by interacting in a constructive way with others.
  • You need to be open, accepting, tolerant and a good listener. At the same time, you need to be able to maintain civil discussions and manage conflicts when emotions run high.
  • Strong interest in, and at least reasonable knowledge of, the subject matter of the project.
  • A good collaborator who works well with a team and takes direction from management when needed.

Tasks:

  • Participate in, moderate and be responsible for ongoing online conversations about the future of the Internet and related issues.
  • Add to conversations by providing links to reference material, articles and papers when appropriate.
  • Maintain a lively and civil atmosphere. Mediate conflicts when necessary.
  • Organize the topics to minimize clutter.
  • Help other participants with the platform when they need or request it.
  • Assist in outreach efforts that include scheduled group video calls and attending local live NGI events organized by Edgeryders.
