Hello! I'm Steven Walling. I've been a Wikipedian since 2006 (see my userpage.)
In 2010, I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as part of the Fellowships program, and later became a staff member based in San Francisco.
Here at the Foundation, I worked to support the growth and continued health of the volunteer communities that build the projects and fulfill Wikimedia's mission. Specifically, I was the Product Manager for the Growth team, where we build and test new ideas for growing the community of editors. Our team was a part of the broader Engineering & Product Development department.
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, and edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
You can reach me via my talk page.
Kind words from others
Barnstars are one way that Wikipedians show appreciation for each other and our work improving the encyclopedia.

Thank you for effectively handling the Draft namespace and making sure it was implemented quickly. Hope to see more of such pro-active responses from the Foundation :) TheOriginalSoni (talk) 02:17, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
