I am pleased to announce that Tilman Bayer has officially joined the
Wikimedia Foundation's Global Development team as Senior Operations Analyst
focused on movement communications starting this week. He has just
relocated to SF after receiving his work visa.
As most of you will be aware, Tilman has been working in the
communications team focusing on movement communications since last July, as
a remote contractor based in Germany. He has been instrumental in the
enhancement to our monthly reporting, continued improvement to our blogging
and the development of our last annual report among other things. Tilman
and Dario Taraborelli co-founded and continues to edit the monthly
Wikimedia research newsletter. In particular, I'd like to highlight his
work to get our reports translated, so that they are more accessible for
the whole community.
In his new role as a staff member, Tilman will continue to work closely
with the communications team in support of the whole foundation team, e.g.
working on the WMF blog, editing the WMF monthly reports and annual report,
and developing multi-lingual communications solutions . His role will now
include the analysis of quantitative data and other research to understand
and address movement communication challenges. He will work on projects to
improve our communications systems in partnership with other groups in the
Foundation. He will report to me for the short term, but will transition
to reporting to our soon to be announced Director, Global Learning and
As User:HaeB, Tilman has been active in both the German and English
Wikipedia since 2003. He was a checkuser on the German Wikipedia for half a
decade, and until joining WMF last year was the editor-in-chief of the
Wikipedia Signpost, the English Wikipedia's community newsletter. He holds
degrees in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and the University
Please join me in welcoming Tilman to the Wikimedia Foundation team in San
