My name is John Blackbourn. I work as a Principal Web Engineer at Human Made where I lead large scale web publishing platform redevelopment projects for enterprise organisations. I’ve previously worked at Code For The People and WordPress VIP.

I’m a core committer to the WordPress open source project and I’ve been involved with it for over fifteen years. I maintain many plugins, tools, and resources for WordPress developers.

I’m a supporter of salary transparency. In my role as Principal Engineer at Human Made I earn £94,500 per year (last updated October 2023).

I live in Norwich, UK; and Torino, Italy.

    • Do not email or Tweet at me with support questions about my plugins as I will not answer. Use the appropriate plugin forum. Support is always better given in the open so others can learn from it in the future.
