If you follow us on Twitter or read our blog, you’ve no doubt noticed we’ve been on a hiring spree. In the last three weeks we’ve hired three new team members! We wanted to take a breather and get everyone up to speed on what the new team looks like. And don’t worry, we don’t plan on keeping up that kind of pace.
Susannah Vila, a co-founder, left us in January to start an MBA program at Columbia University.
Tin Geber has joined us as a full-time Project Pirate. Tin is an interactive data designer who will be helping out on several projects – hence the job title.
Maria Grabowski, a researcher, writer, and campaigner who helped out on the Social Tech Census and has been blogging for us over the past year has joined the team as our Administrative Octopus.
Maya Richman, a technologist, researcher, and radio host based in Montreal has joined the team as Jabbermaster and will be helping us with communications, research, and web design.
- These new hires have been made possible by a generous general support grant from the Oak Foundation which we’ll be using to develop as an organization and grow our programs.
