Hi Joady, Does the title "Chief Product Officer" mean that WMF intends to revert the name of the Audiences department back to the Product department?
"On time and budget" is a goal that can be very difficult to achieve with complex engineering projects that often encounter surprises. WMF has experience with this with VisualEditor. I suggest that it would be good to set realistic expectations for candidates.
