Today is my last day at Moguldom. I’ve decided that I need to disconnect from the business end of things for a bit and go back to my roots – writing code, innovating, and building a better Internet for everyone.
So what’s next for me? I’ve been invited to join the folks at Automattic, where I’ll be writing code and supporting users of Jetpack and WordPress.com! I’m super excited to take on the challenge and join a group of talented people that I have respected for a long time. This new adventure starts in Vienna, Austria in just a few days, at WordCamp Europe.
WordPress has always “felt like home” to me – so it’s only natural that I wanted to join A8C, whose products power a huge number of websites, from personal blogs to big media publishers. I’ll have a chance to reinvest in open source, work with the greatest minds in WordPress, and innovate once again. Maybe one day I can focus on scaling business again, but for now I can take a deep breath and go back to the big picture.
To my friends at Moguldom – I hope it goes without saying – I wish you all the very best that life, love, and business have to offer. You have been an amazing team to work with and you will forever hold a special place in my heart.
To my new friends at A8C – Thank you all for the warm welcome. I’m looking forward to the chaos. See you in Vienna!
