I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012, I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a "product manager", initially for VisualEditor, then the Editing Team, and later the lead product manager for all contribution. In 2018, I moved to be a software engineer, working on reliability, infrastructure, developer tooling, and continuous integration and deployment.
My job is to help ensure that the tools we provide to our readers and contributors are the best they can be, in speed, correctness, consistency, utility, and reliability.
