We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to the DocumentCloud family, Dylan Freedman, who has assumed the role of lead developer.

Dylan comes to us fresh off earning his masters in journalism at Stanford University — but he’s no typical hack. Prior to Stanford, Dylan worked for several years at Google, first as an intern and then as a full-time member of the research team.

Dylan worked extensively on projects that involved machine learning and language, but he wasn’t fully satisfied solving technical problems alone. He wanted, as he put it, a “more tangible connection to the world and its social topics.”

So he decided to get a masters in journalism at Stanford and, after graduation, to join us at DocumentCloud. We couldn’t be happier to have him!

Dylan is filling some size 15 sneakers in taking over for Ted Han, who has moved into a part-time, emeritus role. Ted, as most of you know, is virtually synonymous with DocumentCloud, and words truly cannot express the gratitude we all feel for all he did to make DocumentCloud what it is today. We cannot thank Ted enough.

You can reach Dylan at dylan@documentcloud.org and find him patrolling our support and Slack channels. Please join me in welcoming him to the team!
