Product Manager, Anti-Harassment Tools team, Wikimedia Foundation
Hello! I'm Niharika! I've been around on Wikimedia projects for a while. My earliest work for the communities was for compacting the language-selection on Wikipedia articles which I worked on during my Outreachy internship. After that I got an opportunity to work on the Wikimania scholarships and Grants-review applications. Consequently I worked as a software engineer on Community Tech for a while. CopyPatrol, Popular pages bot, LoginNotify, Syntax highlighting Global Preferences etc are some of the projects I worked on as an engineer. Eventually I took over product management responsibilities in the Community Tech team for over a year and worked on some great projects from the Community Wishlist. In May 2019, I stepped into the role of being a Product Manager on the Anti-Harassment Tools team. It's been an amazing journey and I have loved working with so many different community members that I have crossed paths with in my various roles.
I currently work on the Anti-Harassment Tools team as a product manager, helping build tools to keep our communities safe and healthy. :)
