[JOB OPENING] OASIS Seeks XML Standards Specialist/Technical Writer
The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information
Standards (OASIS) seeks a virtual part-time research assistant who can
serve as a technical writer and XML standards specialist. The
individual will assist in the creation and maintenance of public
information about structured information standards, providing support
for XML.org, Cover Pages, and other OASIS web sites. Candidates should
possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, experience
using (X)HTML editing tools, and familiarity with graphics
applications. Applicants with hands-on experience editing HTML/XML
markup will be preferred.
OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information
Standards) is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives
the development, convergence, and adoption of e-business standards. The
consortium produces more Web services standards than any other
organization along with standards for security, e-business, and
standardization efforts in the public sector and for
application-specific markets. Founded in 1993, OASIS has more than
5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual
members in 100 countries.
OASIS is distinguished by its transparent governance and operating
procedures. Members themselves set the OASIS technical agenda, using a
lightweight process expressly designed to promote industry consensus
and unite disparate efforts. Completed work is ratified by open ballot.
Governance is accountable and unrestricted. Officers of both the OASIS
Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board are chosen by
democratic election to serve two-year terms. Consortium leadership is
based on individual merit and is not tied to financial contribution,
corporate standing, or special appointment.
