It is more valuable to fail and know why, than to succeed blindly.

Built my first Woo Commerce store! Check it out here.
I will be running some real-life orders through it in the coming days. But I am really amazed by how easy it is to set up an online store with nearly zero knowledge.
Although it means a bit more work, I am happy to be living blog first, everywhere else next rule knowing that, I, not the social media companies, own my words however insignificant my words may be.
Time flies when you are having fun. Can’t wait to be back to Whistler to spend a week with my awesome coworkers.
90 days until the Grand Meetup. Who's looking forward to more poutine?

I will never stop learning. I won’t just work on things that are assigned to me. I know there’s no such thing as a status quo. I will build our business sustainably through passionate and loyal customers. I will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and I’ll remember the days before I knew everything. I am more motivated by impact than money, and I know that Open Source is one of the most powerful ideas of our generation. I will communicate as much as possible, because it’s the oxygen of a distributed company. I am in a marathon, not a sprint, and no matter how far away the goal is, the only way to get there is by putting one foot in front of another every day. Given time, there is no problem that’s insurmountable.
We are always in need of great people to help us with our mission of making the web a better place.
While we are always hiring for many roles, I’d like to highlight my role, Happiness Engineer.
As a Happiness Engineer, like all the other roles, you’ll work full-time from your home (with salary and benefits) to help people with their websites and blogs. It’s helpful to have some familiarity with HTML, CSS, and WordPress. Critical is a genuine desire to help people. Apply by following the directions on our Jobs page: https://automattic.com/work-with-us/happiness-engineer/
It is not a traditional job. Working from home and importantly, working without supervision is not for everyone. But if you think you have what it takes and want to be part of the future or work, there is no better time than now to apply.
