Work With Us

From time to time, the Web Foundation looks for exceptional people to join us in advancing the fight to make the open and free web a right for all. We are a small but fast-growing global team that offers the option to be based in London, Washington DC or Jakarta (although some positions require being based in a specific office).

We aim ridiculously high and demand too much of ourselves, but we also have a lot of fun in the process — and we never get bored. If you see a position below that is of interest to you, you can submit your CV and motivational letter to jobs@webfoundation.org. Be sure to include the name of the position you are applying for in the subject line of your email.

Please also indicate whether you possess the right to work (i.e. citizenship, permanent residence, or work permit) in the US, the UK, or Indonesia.

We regret that owing to the high volumes of applications we receive, we do not have the capacity to respond to each applicant. If you have not heard from us within 14 days of your chosen position’s closing date, please consider that your application has been unsuccessful.
