Being a distributed company, the entire Automattic crew meets once a year so that we have an opportunity to interact with all of our peers (20+ new ones since last year) in person. This year’s meetup took place in Seaside, Florida.
As a quick anecdote, Seaside is where the 1998 movie “The Truman Show” was filmed. Stunning location. Great movie, by the way.
As per usual, we had a fantastic time together. Those events are always a wonderful reminder of how Automattic is THE best company in the World!
All fantastic means of not only capturing the pulse of the company, its founders and employees, but also to learn so many things in such a fitting environment. I savored every minute of the trip, both from the personal as well as professional development perspectives.
To all my Automattician brother-in-arms, thank you for the time we shared, and looking forward to the upcoming year. Special props to Rose for having done such a bang-up job organizing the whole thing!
And to those who might be reading this and think how wonderful working with us would be: Think you have what it takes to join the team? Drop by our jobs page. The more, the merrier!
