New Position: Web Internationalization

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is looking for a new team member working on Internationalization in its User Interface (UI) domain, to assure proper internationalization of W3C technology.

Your mission is to advance Web internationalization, so that Web technology becomes and stays usable for people around the world, independent of their language, script, or culture. In coordination with the Internationalization Activity Lead, and with the Internationalization Working Group and Interest Group, develop and review W3C specifications and guidelines with respect to internationalization, including followup work with other working groups; document existing best practices and contribute to develop Web internationalization architecture; give presentations on Web internationalization; maintain W3C Internationalization Web site.

W3C Hosts are located at MIT in Boston, USA, at INRIA in Sophia-Antipolis and Grenoble in France, and at Keio University in Fujisawa, Japan. You will be based at INRIA, but you will have to travel often, to working group meetings or conferences as well as to the other W3C hosts.


As the recognized leader for the technical development of the World Wide Web, we seek an individual with both Web technology and project management experience, a good understanding of the Web industry, eagerness to make the Web more international and interoperable, and enthusiasm for the mission and spirit of W3C.

To apply, please send a motivation letter and your résumé or CV in electronic form to Vincent Quint (quint@w3.org) and Martin Dürst (duerst@w3.org).
