My work with Automattic

Automattic is the company behind, Tumblr, Jetpack, WooCommerce, and several other products. I worked with Automattic as a Type B Data Scientist (i.e., I mostly built and deployed code to production) from May 2017 to October 2021. This post is back-dated to my last day with the company to make it fit nicely into my post timeline, but I’m actually writing this in July 2023. The magic of time travel! 🪄

A nice perk of working with Automattic was getting to write about my work on company blogs. When my website was on, I used the reblogging feature to share those posts here, but they never looked great. One of the first projects I completed after leaving Automattic was migrating my site from to Hugo, which made the reblog posts look even worse. Now all those reblogs redirect here, thanks to Hugo’s aliases feature.

Anyway, here are some highlights from my Automattic work along with links to the relevant posts:

On this website, you can also read about how I ended up joining Automattic and on some of the reasons behind my decision to leave the company.
