Since my 2019 sabbatical and throughout the pandemic, posts related to my working life have been sparse.
But I have some news to share that I’m really excited about! As I approach my 10th anniversary with Automattic, I’m about to embark on a new challenge.
In just a few weeks, I’ll be leaving my beloved team Jupiter to join a newly formed team of three Happiness Engineers, called Comet. Our time over the next year will be devoted to helping with the WordPress.org project and giving back to the open-source community as part of Five for the Future.
Since my pre-Automattic WordPress experience includes working on self-hosted sites and volunteering in the WordPress.org support forums, I’m particularly excited to return to my roots, in a way. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!
