If you’re passionate about building a better future for individuals, communities, and our country—and you’re committed to working hard to play your part in building that future—consider WGU as the next step in your career.
Driven by a mission to expand access to higher education through online, competency-based degree programs, WGU is also committed to being a great place to work for a diverse workforce of student-focused professionals. The university has pioneered a new way to learn in the 21st century, one that has received praise from academic, industry, government, and media leaders. Whatever your role, working for WGU gives you a part to play in helping students graduate, creating a better tomorrow for themselves and their families.
In October 2020, we formally announced our intention to be leaders and active contributors in the Open Source community. Since this announcement, we’ve created a product, The Open Skills Management Tool, that we wish to open source. Other endeavors, such as our work with the Open EdX Learning Management System, which is open source, but to which we’ve made significant changes in order to increase that system’s ability to scale in a containerized world.
In this role, you’ll work with all of EdTech, legal, and our Open Source Program Planning Office to help define what Open Source at WGU means and to build our open source community. This is an exciting opportunity to work with all levels of the organization and leave a lasting impact here and on the higher education community at large.
We’re very excited to meet people interested in this role! Please get in touch with us to learn more.
