Diversity Programs & Initiatives

We’re improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the tech industry. At Automattic, we want people to love their work and show respect and empathy to all. We welcome differences and strive to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups. Our DEI committee involves Automatticians across the company and drives grassroots change. For example, this group has helped facilitate private online spaces for affiliated Automatticians to gather and helps run a monthly DEI People Lab series for further learning.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a priority at Automattic, though our dedication influences far more than just Automatticians: We make our products freely

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Automattic (Egypt) in Dec. 2022


    1. Text-based interview and some questions related to your tech knowledge and it went easy 2. Invited to Slack channel to manage the async interview process 3. Code Test which was adding a new feature to the WP-CLI tool, was a big task, and I did it with all passed test cases and all requirements. then I raised PR with the details. 4. I got a rejection due to less information in PR :) and Technical Issue, Although the reviewer mentioned that I did a lot of points that were done well
