I’m super-excited to introduce Mike Selander who’s joined Human Made as a WordPress Engineer working as part of our agency team. Mike joins us from Old Town Media where he worked for 5+ years, most recently as Head of Development. A recent convert to the nomadic lifestyle, Mike is a perfect fit for our remote-first culture and is already making a big impact helping clients like Greenpeace and News UK bridge the gap between enterprise and open source. Welcome Mike!

Thank you for the great welcome Tom and the Human Made team! I’m really excited to be working with such a talented family at Human Made. I’ve envied the work Human Made puts out for as long as I can remember and still have to pinch myself to be sure this is real!
Like Tom mentioned, I worked for Old Town Media, a local web and marketing agency out of Fort Collins, Colorado, USA where I spent the last 5 years before deciding to travel. I started out as a marketing intern having just graduated with my degree in business and entrepreneurship. Fast forward 5 years and I love my work building complex and interesting sites with WordPress. I am particularly passionate about writing clean, solid code, front-end performance, and testing workflows. The fit with Human Made and the scope of their work could not be more perfect.
WordPress and the community that spurs from open-source code have impacted my life for the better and I am always on the lookout to give back in any way I can. Most recently I gave a talk at WordCamp London on bug-free code, but I’ve also co-lead local meet-ups and helped out in other various ways.
I look forward to contributing to the interesting and complex projects that Human Made excels at and learning even more as I go along!
