In 2001, Voce’s Platforms team came together to do one thing – build great web experiences upon great content platforms. Since then, the team has delivered products across a myriad of platforms while always in search of the best platforms that could deliver for our programs. In 2006, we had the opportunity to build the Sony PlayStation Blog and it was that point that we decided to test the WordPress platform for our team.
So, over six years the PlayStation Blog has grown from WordPress version 2.1 and we have grown to use WordPress not just as a solution for blogs, but a full-featured content management system (CMS) for some of the largest companies in the world. It’s no secret, we are firm believers in not only WordPress’s capabilities, but the community supporting it.
When delivering projects of this scale, we’ve had the good fortune of working very closely with the folks at Automattic (the company behind WordPress.com) to deliver the best solutions possible for programs of this scale — and today that relationship gets a little closer in the launch of their VIP Service Partner program.
Paul Maiorana talks more about the program on the WordPress.com VIP Blog, but for me, involvement in this program is a testament to the work this team delivers day in and day out. We’ve been diligent in building a team focused on great user experience, development talent and customer service for the most demanding programs today.
We’re only scratching the surface when it comes to WordPress’s potential and this relationship with Automattic really has us all excited for where this takes us. If you’re a passionate developer and you’d love to join us, learn more.
