Hey fellow traveller! My name is Artur, and this is what I am up to right now. If you are curious about me, here is a short explanation of who Artur is.
What are you up to these days, Artur?
As of 2022-02-09:
- I work for Tumblr / WordPress.com, where I lead the team helping creators earn by doing their art. In practical terms:
- About 30% of my work is creating roadmaps for WordPress.com payment blocks, WooCommerce future, Infrastructure powering Tumblr Post+, and Tumblr Tipping.
- About 40% of my time is leading the team implementing these roadmaps
- Another 20% is occasionally getting to code stuff, and fix bugs
- And another 10% is reserved for experimental projects within Automattic
- I do that while working remotely, from Poland. I am very excited about Remote Work, and write quite a bit about that.
- I have a wife, a dog, and a baby daughter now. Watching her grow up is plenty of fun.
- Previously, I used to fly a lot, but that is challenging with the Piszek gang, so we bought an RV and I hope to roadtrip through Europe.
My current obsessions
- Remote Work has become popular with the advent of COVID, but creating a good remote culture is not easy. I work remotely for 7 years now, and I share my learnings with employees and managers alike
- Solarpunk is a trend marrying technology, art, and nature in a sustainable way. I like that it proposes hope instead of desperation.
- Helping people earn money is my job description, and I write about related topics quite a bit
- I went into the web3 hole, experimenting with technology, and thinking about the impact of blockchains.
