Automattic wants to hire a Product Designer…

Automattic wants to hire a Product Designer “with in-depth experience designing with accessibility needs and guidelines in mind.” Creating this role is a great move that should put more emphasis on accessibility in WordPress. The timing of this job post, following public debate about accessibility and Gutenberg, makes it hard to think they're not related.

WPCampus has released a request for proposals seeking an accessibility audit of Gutenberg. They want to have it completed and published as soon as possible.
