Happy Engineer

WordPress is made by a company called Automattic. I don’t know why they spell it that way.

In their words, they are “always hiring.” And a role they are always hiring for is “Happiness Engineer.”

I love my current job. But if Automattic offered me a job tomorrow as a Happiness Engineer, I would very likely take it. There are a few reasons.

  • I would work from home, in my pajamas.
  • I would be supporting users of one of the most amazing pieces of software ever produced.
  • I would be groovy.

So maybe someday I will submit a resume to them to become one of those Happy folks who work in their happy place.

But not today. As I’ve said, I am “happy” at my current gig.
