Description

Ever wanted to be a key player in a creative, challenging and exciting project? Do you want to see the tangible outcomes of your work across the world? Are you a passionate coordinator with web experience? Keep on reading!
 
You may have noticed that greenpeace.org has had a complete overhaul, based on a strong new concept and a phenomenal new look. The tool that powers this new website is called Planet 4 (or P4). It is Wordpress-based, and was crafted not only to be just another website, but also a tool to make people ACT and change the world with Greenpeace.
 
Not only is the website innovative, our approach is innovative as well, as it has been created as a full open project. And with our new concept we aim to change the way people do online activism, by providing engagement options far beyond the "classic" opportunities (sign the petition, share, sign-up for alerts, volunteer, etc.). Leveraging technology, Planet 4 will allow contextualization of individual actions in global perspectives, personalization of content, online / offline challenges and empowerment of each supporter who wants to take action NOW. Your role is to support the deployment of this platform.
 
Over 2018 and 2019, Planet 4 will have to be implemented across 25/30 Greenpeace offices around the world. As an Implementation Coordinator, you will help with the high number of deployments that must happen before the decommissioning of the existing content management system (CMS), Planet 3 (or P3).
 
Serving as a liaison between the Greenpeace offices and the International team, you will work with people from all timezones, cultures, skills and backgrounds, get the chance to experiment and innovate, grow personally and professionally, and do something for the planet.
 
This is a full-time opportunity for a period of 1 year, to be based in Amsterdam only.

Here is our challenge to you:

  • Implement project controls and tracking mechanisms to ensure effective and efficient delivery
  • Support operational readiness and deployment
  • On-board regional office teams and assist in recruitment and allocation of tasks

  • Assist in user story writing
  • Manage alignment between global roadmap and local needs
  • Support the review and migration of web content
  • Coordinate integration and acceptance testing
  • Produce and maintain supporting implementation documentation

 
What we are looking for:

  • B.Sc. in a computer science, business administration or related field
  • Minimum of 3 years of work experience as a Project or Implementation Coordinator in technology or technology related projects
  • Significant experience in handling multiple, distributed projects
  • Excellent ability of tracking progress (and mastering of tracking processes and tools)

Support Engineer
IT at Greenpeace isn't your average desktop support job. I have learnt to be extremely flexible with the application of technical knowledge and experience to a variety of, sometimes not so IT-related, tasks. From projection-mapping to solar-array design, the IT team in GPI tries to push the boundaries of a traditional support role to a more pro-active facilitation one.
