A very long time ago, prior to us both working at Automattic, Joen Asmussen sent me a gorgeous print of one of his works as a “thank you” for help on an amazing project which unfortunately never saw public release. A few years later, he graciously requested to I add a nostalgic touch to my office with a second. Both sadly sat in tubes for an unjustified amount of time, but the wait is over! Now that we have completed our move, these pieces from Joen were the first to be hung.
Folks who cannot figure out the nostalgic reference on sight need not remain in my office.
Last week, the Happiness Engineers of WordPress.com and Jetpack got together for a week of introductions, learning, and sightseeing in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Automattic is a globally distributed company, including the Happiness Engineers, so it’s nice to get together occasionally and learn from each other in person.
If this looks like fun to you, we’re hiring!
