I’m pleased to announce Rob Moen is moving from the VisualEditor team to the Growth team.
In Growth, Rob will fill the team's third full-time engineer position, joining Matthew
Flaschen, Sam Smith, and Andrew Russell Green (who's collaborating with Growth on the
Campaigns extension). With Rob's help, the team will be able to move faster on
projects like its experiments acquiring anonymous editors and building features for new
Rob has done amazing work on VisualEditor. Starting with when the team specifically
requested him from Editor Engagement two years ago to work on the user interface features
such as toolbars and inspectors and finishing up with mobile integration and major
UploadWizard media integration changes.
He’ll bring that deep knowledge of VisualEditor, OOJS, and OOUI to projects focused on
experimentation and growth in the editor community. Besides being a rare combination of
front-end and full-stack engineer with extensive MediaWiki experience, he’s also the only
engineer in Growth in the same timezone as Steven Walling and the design team members.
VisualEditor team is now looking for two candidates for open engineering positions, one of
which will fill Rob's spot on the team. Check out the job description especially if
you can help refer someone.
