For the new (as of 2018) team, see mw:Growth.
This page documents the team that existed from 2012-2015. More information about it can be found at mw:Growth/Growth 2014.

The purpose of the Growth team at the Wikimedia Foundation is to find ways to attract and retain new Wikipedia editors. The project launched on April 16, 2012 as the "Editor Engagement Experiments" (e3) team, and is hiring several full-time engineering positions for this team. Also see the other editor engagement projects. In 2013, the group changed its name to "Growth" to more clearly reflect its goal.
