About Bob Matyas

👋 Howdy! I’m Bob Matyas, an experienced web developer living in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I like moving pixels around using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

I work as a Happiness Engineer at Automattic where I help folks using self-hosted WordPress succeed using Jetpack.

Outside of my job duties, I’m passionate about accessibility, user experience, web performance, and the open web. I have been building websites since the late 1990s. I remember the days – and pain – of folks making sites using strange hacks and table-based layouts. We’ve come a long way since then and I love learning the new things coming to the web platform.

When I’m not working online, I’m most likely to be found in probably in the woods, riding a bike, foraging for wild plants, or cooking (hopefully) tasty vegan food.
