WordPress.com VIP Acquires Code For The People

Code For The People is a six-person WordPress development agency based in the UK, known for their great service and the enterprise tools they’ve created. Automattic has acquired them and will be winding down the consulting part of their business as they join our WordPress.com VIP team to continue building the best tools and services for enterprises using WordPress.

We’ve worked very closely with Simon Dickson, Simon Wheatley, and the rest of the Code For The People team in recent years as partners collaborating on projects for our mutual customers, and before that through their many contributions to the WordPress open-source project and community.

They bring a deep understanding of WordPress, unique experience providing solutions for government agencies, and a particular specialty developing multilingual tools, like Babble, for enterprises. We also really appreciate their commitment to contributing back to WordPress, and are excited to have John Blackbourn continue leading the development of WordPress 4.1 as part of Automattic.

And while Automattic has always been a distributed company, and WordPress.com VIP a global team, we’re excited to expand coverage for our European customers as well.

Congrats to the team, and welcome to the Automattic family!
