WPD:Project Manager Role

Web Platform Docs is looking for someone to formally take on the role of “Project Manager” to help organize the work we need to get done and ensure that we as a community are making progress on those tasks.

Time Commitment: Minimum of 10 hours/week


  • Note: the role will start with a minimum of keeping track of content actions, but ideally will expand to cover all types if the project manager has the time and inclination
  • Design and execute on a coordinated, consistent task-tracking system for content issues (perhaps in bugs, flags, spreadsheets, etc)
  • Help track all new action items of all types (focusing primarily on content to start)
  • Identify owners for all action items
  • Ensure actions don’t get stuck on the backlog forever
  • Identify tasks that need to be done (e.g. projects to improve specific types of content)
  • Follow up on actions to ensure they are completed
  • Keep track of work items in flight and their status
  • Attend weekly meetings to keep track of actions and follow up on them


  • Project Management experience preferred
  • Strong organizational skills: able to bring order to chaos
  • Results-oriented and impartial
  • Web Platform and/or documentation experience not required, but a plus
