Anne McCarthy is a minimalistic, optimistic, and athletic nomad who enjoys photography, deep conversations, and thought-provoking questions. They stumbled into WordPress as a freshman in college in 2011 and never looked back.
What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
The doors it opens up for others to share their voice, find their people, make a living, etc. Beyond the impact, I feel so lucky to work on interesting problems at scale with people who truly and deeply care.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
I’m able to connect with folks I might not otherwise run into virtually, especially having joined during COVID. I’m not on Twitter or much social media at all so it’s allowed me to forge new connections, join conversations, and invite folks into efforts with full site editing in a way that feels more authentic.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
Be curious (always), ask as many questions as you can, and aim to answer as many as you ask.
