Automattic WordPress

WordPress Virtual Meetup

On September 24th, we had a WordPress meetup. Due to the current situation in the world, the meetup was virtual and we used Zoom to gather.

My colleague and friend Luminus gave us a fantastic walkthrough of the WooCommerce setup and what one needs to pay attention to when first setting up a store.

Luminus provided a gold mine of WooCommerce info and the best part is – the whole meetup was recorded so you can watch it at any time. Enjoy!


Automattic Grand Meetup 2019 – Orlando, Florida

When I joined Automattic in 2016, there were a total of ~450 Automatticians. Today three and a half years later, there are ~950!

It took me a while before I found myself in the annual Grand Meetup photo – I forgot where I was standing 🙂

Automattic and Reflections of Earth

I am one of the lucky folks who work for Automattic – a remote company whose mission is to make the web a better place. Once a year, all of Automatticians meet at one place to work together on various projects and spend time together. In 2016 and 2017, the Grand Meetup, as we call it, happened in beautiful Whistler in Canada. This year, it was in Orlando.

My Office Today

As an Automattician, I have the opportunity to work remotely. And I love it! I mostly work from home but I also visit various coffee shops and restaurants and work from there.

When I take a look at the Office Today, I can get a rough impression of the office my colleagues used at one point. Pretty cool!

By the way, Automattic is constantly growing and we are always hiring!


Grand Meetup in Canada

Once a year, all the Automatticians gather in one place for a week. It’s a week when I have a chance to meet my colleagues in person and we call it the Grand Meetup! This year, its location – Whistler, Canada.


It was great, it was fun, it was incredible! With 460 Automatticians at one place, it’s almost impossible to meet everyone! However, everyone I met and spoke with was super friendly and I am proud to be a part of a company that has such great people.

I also had a chance to:
