Farewell Automattic. Hello Close.io.

Just over four years ago I was lucky enough to get a gig at Automattic, a company I had long admired.

The last four years have been a rollercoaster of travel, learning, and working with world-class people and entrepreneurs as I worked to improve and grow Jetpack.

It was a privilege to see the company grow from ~200 to 700+ people (all remote!), get to know world-class people like Matt MullenwegToni SchneiderJohn Maeda, and work alongside some of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with including Jesse Friedman, Anthony Bubel, Sam Hotchkiss, George StephanisJames Grierson and way too many more to list.

I’m now even luckier to be joining Close.io (also remote!) as Director of Marketing with the opportunity of helping this vibrant organisation grow as well as the opportunity of learning a raft of new things myself.

Incidentally, both organisations are hiring (Automattic, Close.io) and I’m proud to recommend both of them if you’re on the hunt for a rewarding and remote position.
