Automattic goes fully remote

A conversation between Nora Fehlbaum and Matt Mullenweg

In fact, Automattic, the company behind WordPress and Tumblr was founded as a fully remote organisation back in 2005. Today, the web giant boasts 11,000 employees in about 70 countries.

For the Vitra Summit last October, Vitra CEO Nora Fehlbaum connected with Matt Mullenweg, the founder and CEO of Automattic. Play the video to get Matt’s insights.
