About me

Hey 🙋🏾‍♂️, I work for the Wikimedia Foundation remotely (from Cameroon), currently under the role of a Technical Analyst. I've previously served under the roles of Technical Associate (assisting the GD&I team on technical work flows and continued work on WADP), Web Developer (built the WADP for L&E Team - May 2019 to Jul 2020), Technical Design Intern (for L&E Team - Mar 2018 to Aug 2018). With my volunteer hat, catch me @ this account.

My work

I'm working with the Global Data & Insights (GD&I Team) on various projects related to Wikimedia's data, and building tools to automate & support various data-driven processes e.g. the Wikimedia Affiliates Data Portal.

In addition, in Sept 2021, I joined the Core Platform Engineering Team, where my work is primarily on MW Expedition.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
