We're really excited to have him with us. Welcome, Thorsten!
Thank you for the warm welcome, Tom. I am so looking forward to getting involved in all the awesome things at Human Made.
Shortly after I heard of Human Made for the first time—that must have been in late 2014—I heard of their involvement in almost every area of WordPress. The contributions to Core as well as other open source projects, the quality of the work, the organisation of events like WordCamps and A Day of REST, and, as an unsurpassed number one, the quality of the work environment that Human Made are both able and willing to offer all humans—I truly admired Human Made for all of that, and thus also the people working here.
Although I have been a web developer since 2000, I came across WordPress in 2005 and soon started working on smaller websites. I worked as an external IT consultant at a company offering realistic, immersive flight simulations and training; I registered a trade to do some web development projects on my own; I was a software engineer at a smaller agency specialized in WordPress development; and then, for almost four years, at Inpsyde, a WordPress.com VIP service partner and verified WooExpert. And now finally at Human Made, I have that unmistakable feeling that I am finally where I belonged this whole time.
