Five years ago I took a trip from Geneva, where I was living at the time, to Vienna to join my Automattic team for a meetup, on the very first day of my full-time job here.
I have seen the company grow from about 70 to more than 430 people distributed across more than 50 countries.
I have travelled, about average probably compared to my fellow Automatticians, but quite a lot by normal standards: 500,000km, across 61 trips, in 16 countries, 51 cities over 420 days.
I have learned more than I expected I could learn in such a timeframe, I have taught, I have shared, I have enjoyed every moment of it.
I am happy, and proud, to be part of such a wonderful team: thank you Automattic!
I am looking forward to the next five years!
