A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I ever thought about working as Happiness Engineer at Automattic. My immediate reply was “I would love to, but I’m not good enough yet.”. However, he convinced me to give it a try. Now, a few weeks later, I’ve successfully passed my first and second assignment as well as my first and second interview. And … drum roll … Automattic offered me a trial position as Happiness Engineer starting on July 3, 2017.

At the moment I’m travelling with Devin through Germany and the Netherlands. After we’ve started our journey in Heidelberg, we’ve visited a friend of her in Düsseldorf and now we’re on our way to Aachen. Tomorrow we’ll go to the Netherlands to spend a week there. On July 3, 2017, when my trial as Happiness Engineer starts, we’ll be in Berlin. I can’t wait to get started at Automattic as well as catching up with my friends in Berlin.
