I’m an Automattician

I’m going into my third week so I’m a little bit behind with this post, but I would still like to make a real announcement:

I am a full time Code Wrangler at Automattic, Inc!

Everyone here is super-cool, talented and extremely pleasant to work with. I’m coming in already having met and worked with a few other Automatticans  (during my two Google Summer of Code projects and at WordCamps) so it’s great to be able to continue those relationships.

In addition to my new awesome co-workers: I get to work on a platform that I love, I get to be avaiable for speaking opportunities at WordCamps and other conferences and I get to be more involved with the WordPress community as a whole. To put it bluntly, this is a dream job come true.

Thanks to everyone over the years that have made this possible! I  am very excited to see what the future holds for me here.
