John James Jacoby is the newest member of the team at Automattic. Jacoby is also a lead developer in the bbPress and BuddyPress projects.
Jacoby wrote this about his new position of “Code Wranger” and the future with Automattic:
I’m really excited about the opportunity to work with such amazing, talented, and ulta-cool people on a daily basis. Over the past 2 years I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a fair number of Automattic employees at various WordCamps across the US. They all do-what-they-love and love-what-they-do, and to say that this has been a goal of mine would be an understatement; it’s a dream job come true.
John also wrote he will now be able to attend and speak at more WordCamps and get even more involved in the community. He will continue to support the existing plugins he has created.
