Working on Christmas Eve, could be worse!

When you chose to work on Christmas Eve, it could be worse! Thanks to being a remote worker, and some nice Christmas weather, this was my work spot for a few hours.

Photo taken at the Playa de Azkorri, Basque Country, Spain. Also posted to Automattic’s Office Today blog, which inspired me to post here as well.

Alright, back to work!

Podcast: Inside the Grand Meetup

Have you ever wondered what happens inside the Grand Meetup?

What is a Grand Meetup, or better known as, the GM?

The GM, is the one time a year the company I work for comes together, in person. We’re a distributed company, meaning we all work from home, from all over the world.

This is a deep dive into what the GM is all about, with staff interviews and insights.

You can see my Flash Talk from last year’s GM here, and read more about the event on the Distributed Podcast’s official website.

What does working remotely mean to me?

I am proud to say that I work remotely for a company called Automattic, a company that prides itself on being distributed across the globe. I love my work for many different reasons, but in a nutshell, because I get to do something I enjoy from essentially anywhere I want to do it from.

Working remotely allows me to pack up my laptop and hit the road. I’ve been lucky enough to work from a number of different exotic locations, and I’ve even blogged about it here. Now, I’m embarking on a new journey that will really put these remote working skills to the test.

My Flash Talk!

Required of all new Automattic employees, is a 4-minute or less, Flash-talk. I gave mine in early October, at the Grand Meetup in Orlando, Florida. 

That talk has just been uploaded, and I am now happy to share it with you! My topic was a shoutout to my adopted home, the Basque Country.

What’s the difference between a ‘Pintxo’ and a ‘Tapa’ ?

I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think 😜

I’m officially an Automattician!

As some of you may know, I’m proud to say, I started a new job at Automattic last month! It’s been a time of change in my life, to say the least. New job, new house, and of course, an updated blog! 

Yeah, that’s right, Automattic is a distributed company with 775 Automatticians in 67 countries speaking 83 different languages. That means I can work from home, or, I can work from anywhere! Normally, I work from home, but why not take advantage and work from the beach sometimes?
