Discourse team grows to 20

Over the last few months we’ve added a whopping 9 members to the Discourse team! We held off on any big announcements until our new team page was ready for primetime.

Behold the first twenty!

The nine new arrivals are as follows:

  • Joffrey Jaffeux - Software Engineer
  • Sarah Hawk - Community Advocate
  • Michael Brown - Operations Engineer
  • Joshua Rosenfield - Technical Advocate
  • Gerhard Schlager - Software Engineer
  • Andrew Schleifer - Operations Engineer
  • Kris Aubuchon - Designer
  • Vinoth Kannan - Software Engineer
  • Simon Cossar - Technical Advocate

Those who frequent our Meta community will no doubt recognize most of these names, as many of them have been around for years already. Hiring from within our community remains our go-to strategy, but it is by no means a requirement.

Our 100% remote company now spans 10 different timezones (hover over an avatar to see specific city) and includes a fish, a cat, a hawk and a mysterious plushy creature.

2017 has been an incredible year for us and we expect even greater things in the year to come.

Think you can do great things with us? Send us a note and describe what you can do as part of the team.
