It’s especially fun to (formally) welcome Optaros today as a Silver sponsor. They were actually one of the first to sign up for WordCamp Boston 2011 (you’ve likely seen their logo in our sidebar from the beginning) and have long been supporters of the open source community in Boston. (Full disclosure: prior to ISITE Design I spent over 5 years at Optaros, and consider myself a “friend of the firm”).
Steven Kosakow of Optaros said:
We are absolutely honored, proud, and psyched to be first-time sponsors of WordCamp Boston. First and foremost – we’re WordPress users! Not only is Optaros.com a WordPress site, but you can certainly find WordPress aficionados/users at every corner of our company. So we guess you can say that WordCamp will be like a mini-vacation to the many Optaros employees attending.
If you haven’t heard of Optaros, we have our roots in Boston and are innovating in the content driven commerce space; there couldn’t be a better match! Content is core to innovation for the web, and is redefining the way people shop and communicate, and we’re proud to be moving and shaking in this space. More than anything, we’re really excited to connect with the greater community at WordCamp, “talk shop,” and meet some new friends; see you there!
They’re hiring in Boston.
