Automattic is the company behind WordPress.com, WordPress.com VIP, Akismet, Intense Debate, Gravatar, Polldaddy, Simplenote, and more. We're focused on making the web a better place.
We're also a 100% distributed company: everyone works from their own home or office, and we’re spread out all over the world — California, Texas, New York, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Iceland, Bulgaria, Australia, and more. We track about 70% of our projects on P2-themed WordPress.com blogs, 25% on private IRC channels, and the rest on Skype—no email! Because of the geographic variance, we’re active pretty much 24/7. We care about the work you produce, not just the hours you put in.
We’re committed to providing the fastest and most reliable web experience out there, which means eliminating as many single points of failure as possible. We currently support 2,000+ machines in a dozen data centers and are looking for great developers to help us solve complex problems related to performance, security, and scaling.
