An quick look at the benefits of having a distributed workforce. Very timely since more than 260 Automatticians are currently gathered in Park City, Utah for our annual company meetup. The makers of WordPress learned years ago that the ultimate office perk is not having an office (via Quartz).
In case you missed my dissertation post on Automattic's hiring process or if you read it and want to hear a bit about it straight from Matt Mullenweg, check out this interview. Matt also talks about our distributed teams and offers general insight on WordPress and Automattic.
