Five (And Three Quarters) Years At Automattic

Yesterday, March 8th, was my official fifth year anniversary of being hired at Automattic. I say official because I actually started my trial the previous June and by that fall was doing fulltime regular duties. However no one at the company except perhaps HR realized that I hadn’t been hired on fulltime. I just kept submitting invoices and doing my job. Automattic was a lot more unorganized back then, both with trials and the onboarding process!

It’s been a wild ride and I have no plans whatsoever to go anywhere else. I’m here for the long term and I absolutely love it. It really is a dream job for me. Did I mention we’re hiring? 🙂

Here’s to the next five years!

Lastly for fun, here’s a photo from the first Grand Meetup that I attended with 40 of my coworkers:

Compare that to the latest Grand Meetup last fall when we had about 260 people there! We’re up to 306 as of this post.
