J a n D R E W N I A K UX Engineering a.k.a making the internet make sense

Hi I’m Jan [IPA: /jan ˈdrɛv.ɲak/] and I’m a web developer focused on UX and front-end.

I live in Cambridge Ontario 🇨🇦 and I’m a senior software engineer on the Web Team at the Wikimedia Foundation .

The redesign of Wikipedia I’ve been working on is now live! I specialize in writing scalable & maintainable font-end code emphasizing semantics, performance, accessibility and internationalization making cool stuff for the web 👾. I’m currently focused on building the first Wikipedia redesign in over a decade. I also work on Wikipedia’s mobile site and maintain this page.

In the past I’ve gone to art school 🎨, worked in advertising, start-ups, digital agencies and lived in Poland 🇵🇱 for 11 years.

When I’m not in front of my computer, I might be riding my bike 🚲, trying to winter-proof my century home 🏠 or occasionally parenting 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧.
