We are composed of WordPress.com, WooCommerce, an Enterprise content management system called WordPress VIP, Jetpack, Tumblr, and a business incubator full of potential future products. Our business is built on WordPress, which powers 43% of all websites. Matt Mullenweg, the co-Founder of WordPress and CEO of Automattic, is driving a growth and expansion strategy that is still in its ‘early days’ with a massive TAM and exceptional upside. With a mission to democratize publishing and commerce, Automattic employees have an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to something meaningful and uniquely special. Our platform offers scalability from B2C to SMB to Enterprise, providing both horizontal and vertical solutions. Our customer base ranges from individual consumers to Fortune 50 companies, and extends to large public sector organizations. We manage the internet properties for renowned organizations such as Salesforce, Porsche, Meta, Disney, and NASA. With over 4 million online stores running WooCommerce, accounting for 27% of all online stores globally, and more than 1 billion people using our products monthly, Automattic has established itself as a pivotal player in the digital landscape. We are a team of 1900, which has grown by 250% in the past three years, spread across 94 countries. Unlike many companies, we are and will always be 100% remote (we call it distributed). This means that you can work from anywhere in the world, in any time zone, leveraging collaboration tools and asynchronous communication. Automattic is highly acquisitive and focuses intently on mergers and acquisitions. Over the past 17 years, we’ve acquired 35 companies, including WooCommerce, Parse.ly, and most recently, Texts.com, a multi-channel messaging play. These acquisitions now represent some of Automattic’s largest business units and growth drivers. Our company is backed by some of the world’s most respected investors, spanning mutual funds, venture capital, sovereign wealth, and strategics. These include Salesforce Ventures, Insight Venture Partners, ICONIQ Capital, True Ventures, Wellington Management, BlackRock Asset Management, Alta Park Capital, Schonfeld, New York Times Company, and Tiger Global Management. Our Board includes Sue Decker, who also serves on the boards of Berkshire Hathaway, Costco, and Vox Media, as well as Ann Dunwoody, the first female four-star general in the US Army. Automattic is profitable, generates positive cash flow, and is aggressively investing in future growth. Automattic is a great place to build a career, learn, and contribute!
