About

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 proponent of salary transparency. In my role as Principal Engineer at Human Made I earn £90,000 per year (last updated August 2022).

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

Below I list places you can find me elsewhere online. Please 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.
