Recently REWORK podcast recorded and published a fascinating debate between the two people I admire and respect, Matt Mullenweg and DHH, about tech monopolies and power of the open-source.
I look forward to another show on Venture Capital and funding. Hopefully, they are able to record it sooner!
Great to see my favourite blog move to WordPress.com!
Happy 15th birthday, WordPress. Great to fly with you for 11 of those years.
You are special and unique outlier in the current murky tech world. Keep being awesome!
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.
If the above lines resonate with you, come join us at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce.
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.
Daddy, do you work for WordPress or something?
Thanks to the WordPress swag in the house, on our bodies, and ❤️ in our hearts.
Just read a well-balanced post about WordPress, on Medium, today.
