Open Position: HTML and Web Applications Specialist


The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is looking for a new staff member to assist with W3C's work as team contact for two W3C Working Groups: HTML and WebAPI. This is an opportunity for a unique individual to be part of the team responsible for the design of next generation World Wide Web Technologies and to lead a variety of industry and user groups toward the development of technologies that enhance the functionality of the Web. The role of a W3C team contact is described in the W3C process.

You will be associated with the Japanese W3C host Keio University, in Shonan Fujisawa, Japan, but you may choose to work remotely. You will have to travel often, to Working Group meetings or conferences in various international locations, as well as to the other W3C hosts, located at MIT in Boston, USA and at ERCIM in Sophia Antipolis, in the South of France.



As the recognized leader for the technical development of the World Wide Web, we are seeking an individual with both Web technology and project management experience, a good understanding of the Web industry, eagerness to evolve the Web towards better HTML with richer Web APIs, and enthusiasm for the mission and spirit of W3C.

Candidates living in Japan or able to relocate to work at the host institution, and/or fluent in Japanese or other Asian languages are particularly welcome.

Screening of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, please send a motivation letter and your resume or CV in electronic form to keio-application@w3.org
