Description

(Ideally Madrid or Shenzhen, open to remote working) 


Wikifactory is a social design and production platform to enable distributed teams to design together, prototype faster and manufacture smarter. Inspired by the proven collaboration tools from the open source software world, Wikifactory empowers distributed and open product development teams to get their projects from design to production - and we need your help!


The Role

Over the next 3 months Wikifactory will be working closely with product design teams who use a variety of digital fabrication machines (robotic arms, 3d printers, CNCs, etc…) to prototype and manufacture innovative products. We will be engaging them onto our social collaboration platform to share their projects and contribute to building an exceptional culture of open collaboration. In preparation for our public launch, we are nurturing these projects to come together on our platform as a unique, global community of designers, engineers, makers, technologists and other creative problem solvers. 

You will be playing a supportive role in (1) engaging projects to onboard onto Wikifactory, (2) curating and sourcing content to populate our platform and (3) sharing the most exciting content on social media.

If you are excited about the coming 4th Industrial Revolution and want to take initiative in an area, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to get involved in deep innovation projects.
