- Excellent ability to research and interpret official and complex sources to extract relevant information;
- Ability to follow instructions exactly and comply with established process for entering data into interface;
- Excellent retention of information - Junior editors need to be able to retain large amounts of information for a sustained period to ensure that there is no duplication in any sources or information
- High levels of concentration and be detail-oriented;
- Excellent communication skills - often Junior editors need to work in small teams with Research editors, and Junior editors need to be in constant communication with the Editors coordinator and the entire team;
- Familiarity and experience with Trello boards, Google sheets/Excel and Slack
If this sounds like a role you might be interested in, please tell us a little about yourself and why you want to volunteer with us!
About Project Lockdown (The IO Foundation)
Riia tn 128, Tartu, Estonia 50411, CA
Project Lockdown maps the different Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions enforced by governments across the globe in response to the COVID-19 crisis in order to visualize the success of different pandemic response measures, monitor effects on Human and Digital Rights, and clarify evaluation metrics.
Lockdown, quarantine, and isolation measures have been implemented across the globe to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and its strain on medical infrastructure. Project Lockdown is an open-source interactive map that empowers citizens, journalists, and human rights workers to easily analyze the social and political effects of these measures.
We are a global team of volunteers and developed the Beta map during the #EUvsVirus hackathon in late-April, where we won second place for the "Protection of Citizens & Democracy" challenge, and have since launched publicly! Our growing team consists of Data Scientists, Editors, Designers, and Web Developers, and we have support teams in Human Resources, Resource Allocation, Documentation, and Marketing and Communications. We foresee long-term viability for this project and welcome international volunteers!
