Dear Rupert,

right now, the following folks work in Product:

- Howie Fung (Director)
- Design/UX team: Brandon Harris, Munaf Assaf, Vibha Bamba, Pau Giner
- Product Management: Fabrice Florin, James Forrester, Siebrand
Mazeland, Steven Walling, Maryana Pinchunk
- Community Liaison: Oliver Keyes
- Research: Dario Taraborelli, Ryan Faulkner, and additional part-time
research contractors

We've currently got a couple of vacancies: a Visual Designer position,
and the Product Manager for Mobile. According to plan an additional PM
Multimedia position is scheduled to be opened later in the fiscal

So there are currently ~13 FTEs in Product, and 3 current or planned vacancies.
