I love being an Automattician! It’s not just that I work from home 100% of the time, or because I work with smart amazing people all over the world, but because I am making a difference. I believe deeply in what WordPress stands for (also WordPress.com) and what we accomplish.
I started using WordPress in 2003 when b2 just stop coming out with updates and Matt grabbed the reins. To be working for WordPress is a dream come true. I mean it’s pretty much the best. We even get to travel to amazing places regularly and meet the WordPress community that exists all over the world. My favorite so far is Ireland.
