This week we are very happy to welcome Julia Kieserman to the team. Julia
studied Computer Science at Georgetown University, and we were impressed by
how closely-aligned her experiences are with Wikifunction’s mission to
allow everyone to share in the ability to answer questions using functions.
You can find her on Github as juliakieserman
<https://github.com/juliakieserman>. Let’s have her introduce herself in
her own words.
*I'm incredibly excited to be joining WMF as a software engineer on the
Abstract Wikipedia team. I live in NYC (born and raised) but have lived in
London, Munich and other parts of the U.S. for periods, somehow always
ending up back in NYC :). After studying Computer Science in college, I've
worked as a software developer, data engineer and product manager.*
*I'm most passionate about lowering the barrier to entry for all things
tech related (i.e. coding shouldn't be scary) and continuing to make the
field an inclusive and well-represented world!*
*During my free time I like reading whatever I can get my hands on, bike
riding, and eating food cooked by others.*
Please join me in welcoming Julia on the team!
