I've Joined Automattic

This is big news, and words can’t explain my feelings. Today’s my first day at Automattic, the company behing WordPress.com, Akismet, Gravatar, Polldaddy, VaultPress, and a whole lot more. As you know, Automattic also contributes to a number of Open Source projects, including BuddyPress, bbPress, Browse Happy, WordCamp.org and of course WordPress itself.

So… Starting today, I’ll be working on some really cool stuff with some of the most talented minds on earth. I’ve already met with some of the folks online and the energy is incredible, they got me even more excited, and now I can’t wait for my first meetup and of course WordCamp to meet everybody in real life.

This is a dream come true for me, thank you so much Automattic! Looking forward to “make the web a better place.” :)

  1. Awesome. The reason I created serverpress was only for submitting my resume to them (about dozen times -too many? LOL). I am both envious and thrilled. They are getting a good coder and technical author that can *actually communicate*. This is so awesome, congratulations!

  2. Congratulations! That’s such fantastic news — and I can’t think of many people who deserve it more.

  3. Congratulations Konstantin!

    I just found your blog a couple days ago and am enjoying reading back into the archives, even if I can only grasp a fraction of your more technical posts…

    I selfishly hope this career upgrade won’t affect your willingness or ability to continue contributing to my WP knowledge base.

    Best regards.

  4. Somehow, through following your blog via RSS, I don’t really see this as a surprise. ;-) What would WordPress do without you anyway? Looking forward to seeing that drag-and-drop being implemented soon.

  5. Congratulations Konstantin! That’s awesome! You’ll have to keep us updated with how everything goes and what you’re gonna be working on.

    So awesome!

  6. Hey all, thank you so much for all the kind words, it really means a lot to me. For those of you who have asked, I’ll start working on some of the community facing stuff (incl. BuddyPress and bbPress) as soon as my support rotation is over. I’ll (try my best to) keep contributing more to core too, but that’s not really part of the job :) Thanks again everyone and hope you’re enjoying your weekend :)

  7. Congratulations, Konstantin. You deserved it, bro. Your skills and efforts will help make WordPress and sisters even more awesome.
