On Monday, we were delighted to have Kim Moir join Mozilla’s Release Engineering group. She’ll be working with coop, who is (coincidentally) also based out of Ottawa, but the rest of us can find her on irc as “kmoir”. Please do say “hi” and welcome her to Mozilla.
Kim brings great perspective to the group, as she has worked on Eclipse release engineering for years, has worked with distributed groups, and has also done lots to raise awareness about release engineering with the open source community. If you are not already familiar with her work, you should read her blog here (great title, by the way!).
ps: Yes, we’re still hiring. Our Release Engineering group helps Mozilla’s developer community write great code, and then efficiently gets that code into the hands of our Firefox users. If you are passionate about open source, and about building large complex distributed infrastructure, we’d love to hear from you.
