Howdy! I’m Artur.

Both Software Engineer and Psychologist by education, I explore the possibilities at the intersection of science, motivation, and behavior. I am passionate about integrating technology with human experience in a way that and empowers people to focus on what is important, inspiring and fulfilling.

What I’m working on

  1. As my remote ‘day job‘ I am unlocking the economic potential of content creators and small businesses – I lead the ‘Earn’ focus of WordPress.com. I am confident, that helping creators foster an economic relationship with their audience can help battle the fake news epidemic and reduce inequalities,
  2. After getting master’s degrees in both Computer Science and Psychology, I was a believer in social media capacity to promote mental health. Seeing this potential wasted and distorted for profit is a gut-wrenching feeling compelling me to promote a different approach to tech,
  3. Warsaw, Poland is my home. I work remotely (with my wife) for a Silicon Valley company – WordPress.com. Inspired by remote work allowing everyone to participate in the amazing global economy, I started writing about getting hired remotely and challenges of telecommuting

Current obsessions

  1. Nature and Trees will always be my #1
  2. Remote work as a way to equalize access to prosperity AND curb urbanization
  3. Interactions between tech and motivation
  4. I do like travelling
  5. Automating and creating processes to create more quality time in my life
  6. Focusing on the longer time scale and escaping the toxic immediacy of media (see ‘long now‘)

Few of my personal beliefs

  • It’s better to squeeze more life into your years than years into your life. You can read my bucketlist on this site,
  • The world is not a zero-sum game and we’re all in this together
  • People are collections algorithms. If you want to shape behavior, you can either work on incentives (inputs) or beliefs (‘code’),
  • There really are no adults in life, only older kids.
  • It’s better to be kind than respected, but it’s even better to be helpful than kind
