Andrew Nacin joins the White House Digital Service

WordPress lead developer Andrew Nacin has worked for Matt Mullenweg’s firm Audrey Capital for several years, but he is leaving to join the White House Digital Service.

The United States Digital Service is transforming how the federal government works for the American people. And we need you.

A quote from Andrew:

When I was approached, I have to admit that I was nervous to step back from the day-to-day buzz of WordPress because I’ve invested so much. But the community stepped up, in most cases not even knowing about my life change. That’s the beauty of open source, and the fantastic WordPress community in particular. WordPress continues to play an important role in my life. With Matt Mullenweg’s support and encouragement, I’m taking time away from Audrey, where I’ve worked since 2010. I’m still actively involved in the project, just not full time.
