I'm pleased to announce that today, Giuseppe Lavagetto will be joining the Operations
Team as an Operations Engineer. Giuseppe is based in Rome, Italy and will be working with
us remotely. He's coming from Venere, a daughter company of Expedia, and has greatly
helped streamline Operations and improve service reliability there.
Giuseppe is very passionate about free and open source, free content and user privacy, and
these aspects are strong motivations for him to join the Wikimedia Foundation. In his free
time, he's an active volunteer with Autistici, a project that provides users
communications privacy and helps avoid censorship. He also likes to contribute to various
small FLOSS projects and loves music, blues, soul and hip-hop in particular. He's
happily living with his wife and 11 year old step-daughter in Rome.
Giuseppe will be joining us next week in our off-site team meeting in Athens, which should
be a short trip for him. :)
Please welcome Giuseppe!
