On 12th Feb, I joined Automattic as a Community Wrangler.
They are the fine folks behind WordPress.com, Akismet, Jetpack (two plugins this blog has be running on for a long time now), Longreads, WooCommerce and much more.
It also has open-source at the core of is DNA. The company works in a completely distributed manner, which means everyone works remotely.
As a Community Wrangler, I would be working with the volunteers and also full time folks who mainly keep the WordPress community running. This is a really exciting new journey I have embarked upon.
And yes, Automattic is hiring!
That said, starting full-time with Automattic was the second best thing to have happened to me this month. A week before I started work, I got married to my best friend Kavita. ♥️
