I am pleased to announce that Dmitry Brant joins WMF this week as a
Software Engineer for the Mobile App Team!
Dmitry will be working remotely from Cleveland, OH, where he has lived
ever since immigrating from Moscow, Russia many years ago. He joins
the Wikimedia Foundation coming from a previous life in speech
recognition software for use in military robots, UGVs, and medical
devices, and an even earlier life in software for controlling welding
equipment and industrial robotic cells.
Dmitry believes passionately in WMF's mission, and is excited to help
enhance the Wikipedia user experience on mobile platforms.
In his spare time he creates software for digital forensics and data
recovery . In his other spare time, he's an avid guitar player,
blogger, and mushroom forager.
Dmitry will work closely with Yuvi to further enhance the user
experience for the upcoming native Wikipedia app.
Please welcome Dmitry!
