As I mentioned in my previous post, Tara and I will be moving to Virginia on Thursday. This means that, over the last six months or so, not only have we been trying to hammer out the details of our move, but I’ve also been looking for a new job at the same time.
This is why I am mind-bogglingly relieved, proud, and excited to say that, as of August 7th, I will be joining Automattic as a full-time Happiness Engineer. :D
For those who may not know, Automattic (two T’s) is the company behind WordPress.com (the site this blog runs on), Gravatar, IntenseDebate, PollDaddy, and quite a few other web services. They’re also big fans of BBQ and burritos. Who could say no to that?!
I’ve been doing contract work for them for the past six weeks or so, and I can say without a doubt that literally everyone who works there is both whip-smart and extremely generous with their time and knowledge. I’m looking forward to joining their ranks next week!
If all that sounds interesting, they’re always hiring! Check out their Work With Us page.
