Nah … not today. I kept myself busy with engineering happiness for Automattic as well as having a great meeting with my good friend and best man Mark from Gunung An and The Onion Collective about his websites. I do have to admit that I’m a big fan of the Genesis Framework and as Mark’s thinking about redesigning the existing pages, I suggesting using the Genesis Framework.
A part of Automattic’s creed says:
I’m in a marathon, not a sprint.
Don’t delay what you can do today
my Aussie friends use to say
There’s always another day
(Just imagine the German and Aussie accents!)
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.
