 Congratulations, Vishnu! We are looking forward to working with you
 further.

 As a participant in the interviewing process from WMF, I wanted to extend
 a _HUGE_ thank you and congratulations to CIS for conducting such an open
 and extensive hiring process. They had quite the challenge before them, and
 I am impressed with their commitment to transparency and collaboration
 through the process. Nice work to Jadine especially for updating us all on
 what was happening!

 Also, thank you to ALL OF YOU who helped in participating in the process!
 Adethya Sudarsanan (volunteer), Arun  Ramarathnam (Wikimedia India
 representative) and Nitika Tandom (from CIS Access to Knowledge team) in
 particular invested much time and energy into screening
 candidates. Also, to all the community members who helped on the online
 planning process: thanks for your feedback and participation.

 Finally, it would be great to gather as a community how this process went.
 Perhaps we could set up a page similar to one designed in Brazil to capture
 both the process and the learnings?
 Let me know if you think that would be helpful; I can set up the link
 unless one of you beats me to it (and please feel free to:)!

 of CIS's Access to Knowledge programme at the New Delhi office. Prior to
 this position, he was the Senior Development Officer for the Sir Ratan Tata
 Trust (SRTT), a position that he has help since 2007. His experience spans
 across academics, industry (media) and the not-for-profit sector. Over the

 Prior to joining CIS, Vishnu managed the Art, Crafts and Culture portfolio
