What does it take to be a Happiness Engineer?

It has been officially more than two years since I started my trial to be a Happiness Engineer for Automattic. I can honestly say that it was one of the most challenging, and rewarding journeys I have ever embarked on. I’m very pleased with how everything has turned out, and still, after two years, look forward to going to work and helping our users every day!

The motivation for this post is we’re hiring! If you or anybody you know is interested, my advice is to apply! If you’re curios more about what the job entails, my colleague Sandy wrote a great description on his blog. I would highly recommend checking it out!

D0n’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or doubts!

I would suggest preparing yourself, and going for it! So the hard part is, getting ready. Well, there’s the obvious, get to know WordPress in and out. Volunteer in the forums, build a blog, make some practice websites, do whatever you can do!

As for some more concrete ideas, I would suggest looking these pages over:
