2012 was a big year for Automattic, as shared by Matt Mullenweg. Not only did they add more staff but they’ve done so much both on the WordPress.com side as well as the WordPress.org. We’ve covered a few of these highlights previously.
In 2012, here are some of the highlights that he made note of:
- Automattic grew by 48 to their current team.
- Over 40,000 commits to the various repositories with about half of them on WordPress.com.
- Saw an incredible growth in terms of unique visits (75MM).
- 2 acquisitions (one announced and one yet to be).
- Looking to add at least 60 more staff to the team.
Wow, some incredible numbers for sure. If you’re interested in joining one of the most unique teams on the planet then head over to their job board and see what opportunities are available. I’m sure they’d love to chat with you!
The acquisition that I’m familiar with is CodeGarage which was directly a VaultPress joint – I’m definitely curious about what the unannounced acquisition is!
Here’s to another incredible year!
