Phabricator is a collaboration platform open to all Wikimedia contributors. It is mostly used for managing work in software projects. This can be a great place to find candidates however a lot of recruiter do not search here. The reason is simple they do not know how. Well to do this without worry you need go no further than into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, a simple search with some extras, and a whole lot of website searching
So to source within Phabricator you simply need to use a skill known as xraying, like the one below.

Also keep in mind search in both Bing and google as the result sometimes is better in one than the other.

Until next week may the source be with you!!
