Question

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?

Answer

Officially, I am an individual contributor. In practice, I’m a team member in Infrastructure’s Middleware group. Middleware responsibilities include proxy and caching solutions, ftp services, n-tier application and Web servers (multiple technology platforms), and some other stuff (that’s the technical term).

Within Middleware, I am part of the Public Facing Sites (PFS) team.  As implied, PFS’ focus is public sites and content, which include LDS.org , Newsroom , Mormon.org , and others. The team is responsible for the application environments’ availability and administration.  To that end, PFS integrates closely with partner organizations such as Dev and QA to provide useful content and products that perform effectively and are highly available.

An Introduction to the Clerk Wiki
by Robert Lindsay

The job of a quality assurance engineer is to constantly be looking for ways to improve quality, including setting targets for metrics or setting criteria that must be met before we consider it a quality product.

At a recent gathering of Church quality assurance employees we discussed the idea of how truth affects the quality of our work processes and lives.

We may be really good at setting goals and envisioning the future. However, our ability to achieve those goals depends on having a true understanding of our current state of being— how we’re doing right now. This is the point: often we are not truthful with ourselves about the reality of what our current state actually is. We think (or believe) we know where we are, but in reality we may be far off.

Jim GreeneQuestion

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?

Answer

I am the product manager over the FamilySearch Research Wiki and the Family History Library as well as the new FamilySearch’s interface with Membership and Statistical Records. This involves gathering user requirements, writing user stories for engineers, and prioritizing stories.

Question

What is one of the exciting projects that you are currently working on?

Answer

FamilySearch Research Wiki. We believe that by involving the worldwide community of family historians in a collaborative effort, we can create an encyclopedia of unparalleled record sources that will greatly assist the work of redeeming the dead. More people will easily find records with data about their ancestors, resulting in more saving ordinances.
