About me

Hello, world!

About me

My name is Rynaldo and I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa with my wife and two (soon-to-be three), kids.

I work at Automattic as a support engineer — we’re the people behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce.com, Jetpack, Akismet, and many other cool products that help make the web (and the world), a better place.

Currently, my focus is WooCommerce (the WordPress-driven eCommerce platform), and the myriad of extensions that add abilities to the WC core

In my free time, I build WP/WC plugins — you can view some of them on my WordPress.org and Github profile.

I am also a WC v3 core contributor — one of my bigger contributions is the status tool for clearing orphaned variations that I added for v3 (https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce/commit/5814dc3a97193dc9c23d7c53b68db7731751d5bb)

About this site

This is my personal site, where I’ll publish mainly about WooCommerce: Sharing tips, tricks, and guides (powered by lots of coffee), that will hopefully help those around me.

Thanks for visiting!
