As of today, I am officially a fulltime Automattic employee! I’ve been contracting with Automattic for a few months now but didn’t want to talk about it for fear of cursing it. It really is a dream job for me as I’m working with some of the best people in the business and the WordPress community and I couldn’t be happier. I want to thank Matt and everyone else at Automattic for giving me this great opportunity.

  1. That has got to be the best news of the day. So glad for you, Automattic and the WordPress community. You certainly deserve in more than most.

  2. Congrats on the dream job. I knew you were contracting for awhile and just waiting on whether or not you’d be told you’re on full time. Must be an awesome feeling of exhilaration to be part of the Automattic team. I’ve had the pleasure meeting and talking to a bunch of them and they are nice people, smart too.

  4. Dude, I didn’t realize you hadn’t started full-time yet 🙂 Congrats, and welcome to the team! You’ve been crushing it so far, and I expect you’ll continue to do the same!

      • As a joke didnt’ we almost require a drivers license? But then it might be years before we could hire you 😉
        Though on the track, you’ve already proven yourself.

        • Haha, it’s actually on my todo list, but when I’m not working, I don’t want to spend that time working on something else (i.e. a license). 🙁

          As for the track, I dunno about that — Joesph and a few others kicked my ass.

  5. Nice! At the first WordCamp PDX (2.5 years ago) I remember you saying that you hoped to get a job with Automattic. Glad it finally happened. Look forward to seeing more of the work you do with them.
