Joined Automattic, Started a Blog


Life’s been plenty busy these days. I spent the last two years of my life working on a startup I co-founded called Crumbly which was an iOS app with the goal of helping people find places based on their friends social context. Sadly, like many startups, it never took off like we had hoped. As I began to look for what was next, I applied to work at Automattic at the nudging of my friend Dan Roundhill who worked on their mobile team. After the most interesting interview process I’ve ever done, Automattic made me an offer to join their mobile team. As you probably guessed from the title, I accepted the job and my first day at Automattic was February 1st.

Being as Automattic is the company behind, it felt somewhat proper that I should start a blog. As such, this blog is born. I would promise to make it interesting, funny, and life altering, but that would be a lie. That being said, my ego would still appreciate it if you would stick around anyway.

  1. I like what you guys are usually up too. Such clever work and exposure!
    Keep up the good works guys I’ve added you guys to
    my own blogroll.

  2. Hi Sendhil,

    In that you have exactly three blog posts, my guess is that:

    a) blogging is not your thing and/or

    b) Automattic is taking up 110% of your time and/or

    c) the work at Automattic is more interesting and fulfilling then blogging ever will be.

    But wait …


    your blog?

    If so, then kudos!

    PS I really like your Gravatar. The lighting and shadows give it a surreal quality. Was it professionally shot?


  3. Hey CB,

    It’s a little bit of B ;). I’ve always wanted to blog more but got busier and busier…

  4. Understood, it is a real challenge to write new content on a regular basis with the demands of work, family, and leisure always at hand.

  5. Oh as far as my Gravatar, it was professionally shot. A friend of mine needed some extra people for a photo shoot he was doing so that’s where it’s from.
