I'm a moderator here and on some other Stack Exchange sites. Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. (Please bring your technical-writing questions to Writing!)
I've been an individual contributor, team lead, and manager (and hiring manager) at various times, and I've worked for small startups, large companies, and university projects. I've lived through acquisitions, spinoffs, layoffs, and shutdowns.
