Liz Gannes writes for AllThingsD, Automattic Grows Up: The Company Behind WordPress.com Shares Revenue Numbers and Hires Execs. In addition to Stu joining as CFO and Paul as Consigliere/Automattlock, we’ve been on a hiring roll the past month or two with excellent folks joining at every level of the company, including two more Matts. If you’re passionate about Open Source and making the web a better place, like we are, there’s never been a better time to join. My favorite thing about logging in every morning is the people I work with. Friends say I work too much but it hardly feels like work at all. Update: Now in Techcrunch too.

Yes, great work! And thank you for the opportunity for others to make a living off WP. I wish we could do a community survey to estimate the commercial value generated off off WordPress.
That’s what I call a Lean and Mean Rockin’ Automattic Team. Amazing job ladies and gents. Kudos all.
