Moving to a WordPress VIP Developer Role

As of today, July 19th 2021, goal has finally come true, I’m switching roles at Automattic.

This year was finally the year when I made time for myself and spent hundreds of hours over nights and weekends learning JavaScript.

Today, I start as a Developer Apprentice in the VIP division. I’m no longer in support and will have plenty of mentors to help me learn and grow as a programmer. If things go well, at the end of the year apprenticeship, I’ll be a senior engineer 🙂

I’m excited for all the learning and growth (and hair pulling out) that will will happen in the next 365 days.

I share more details about the process in episode 507 of Your Website Engineer podcast.
