Philip Arthur Moore who previously worked for WordPress themeing company Graph Paper Press is now under employment by Automattic as a theme wrangler. Arthur has published a great story on how he’s been able to reach this point in his life.
The first projects I completed for Automattic as a trial Theme Wrangler were .org to .com conversions of the WordPress themes Nishita and Bold Life5. The responses to them made me feel wonderful and I hope that a year from now I have many more theme conversions, as well as theme creations, under my belt at Automattic.
Congrats Philip, you’ve joined one heck of a company. By the way, if you’re reading this and thinking about applying for a job at Automattic, the good news is that they’re hiring. Just ignore the pictures of the Pier 38 Automattic Lounge as it’s no longer in existence.
