Who Is Brandon Kraft?

I’m Kraft.

Most people, including my wife, call me Kraft. You can too.

There’s no relation to the company. Or the guy in New England. Or the former NASA administrator. I mean, I’m sure there is some relationship somewhere, but we’re all related at some point.

Most importantly, I am married and the father of six wonderful little girls. We’re Catholic and do our best to do right by everyone.

In my free time, I am a core contributor to WordPress, a baseball coach/league administrator, a beer geek, and a wannabe homebrewer (who hasn’t brewed in a while šŸ¤«).

I work at Automattic as a engineering manager. We’re the company behind WordPress.com, Ā Jetpack, Akismet spam blocking, Crowd Signal polling and survey tool, WooCommerce eCommerce solutions, Tumblr, and more, having fun while making the web a better place. Currently, my focus is the Jetpack plugin that brings enhancements from WordPress.com to sites using the WordPress.org software.
