We’re supplying no cost workshops to encourage females in the Asia-Pacific Area to apply for a profession in WordPress Help.

Automattic desires to create a new net, and a new sort of workplace.  We want to provide globe-class 24/7 assistance to our customers, and an revolutionary, fascinating, and wholesome function atmosphere for our employees worldwide. As a element of  this, we recruit from all timezones so that everybody has the freedom to opt for their personal function hours.

In Happiness in specific, we want to deliver much better assistance coverage in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) area, and our APAC recruiting efforts have integrated almost everything from marketing on social media and job boards to in-particular person networking at WordCamps and WordPress Meetups.

Though we’ve hired some terrific Happiness Engineers, we found that the ratio of females applicants was dropping more than time. As awareness of Automattic as a distributed employer has grown in the area, the quantity of applications from guys has grown quicker than these from females.

Offered Automattic’s commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, we brainstormed methods to attain females additional efficiently. This turned into a series of workshops on WooCommerce held for females in India and Singapore all through 2018.

In 2019 we’ll take our message to a broader audience by supplying an on the net workshop. This will let us attain females in several additional nations and cities than we could ever take a look at in a calendar year. We’re partnering with Help Driven, an on the net neighborhood of assistance experts, to market assistance as a profession for females who may well have the relevant expertise but haven’t applied for these roles.

In January 2019 we’ll launch the 1st on the net workshop for females in APAC focused on creating expertise in WordPress assistance. The course will cover:

  • Ambitions of terrific consumer assistance
  • Building your personal assistance philosophy
  • WordPress troubleshooting
  • Productivity tools
