Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons report
OpenRefine starts Structured Data on Commons development and is searching for two developers
OpenRefine is a power tool to clean messy data, popular in a diverse range of communities. It has been serving the needs of journalists, librarians, Wikimedians and scientists for more than 10 years, and is taught in many curricula and workshops around the world.
OpenRefine is quite actively used on Wikidata. In addition, thanks to a Project Grant from the Wikimedia Foundation, OpenRefine will, between September 2021 and August 2022, be extended with structured data functionalities for Wikimedia Commons. This code extension will make it possible to batch edit structured data of existing files on Wikimedia Commons, and to batch upload new Wikimedia Commons files with structured data from the start.
In order to develop the abovementioned features, OpenRefine has two Junior Developer job openings (paid contractor positions; part-time, fully remote). Obviously, Wikimedia and/or GLAM developers are strongly encouraged to apply:
- Junior Developer - Wikimedia Development (6 months, from September 2021 till February 2022)
- Junior Developer - OpenRefine Development (8 months, from November 2021 till June 2022)
