On this day, 4 years ago, I started full time with Automattic. This is my 4th Automattiversary.
I had already been on trial for 5 months by that point (since January), and had a good feel for the company and the other Automatticians. I knew it was where I wanted to be. So I accepted the offer, and became a fully-fledged member of a relatively small team (I was employee number 35) that was bringing blogging to the people (amongst other things).
In the four years since then, a lot has happened and changed.
