Howdy! We're the people behind, WooCommerce, Jetpack, and a bunch of other products for WordPress.

We are passionate about making the web a better place. We don't build software for free –– we build it for freedom. Our goal is to democratize publishing and commerce so that anyone with a story or idea can share it with the world regardless of income, gender, politics, language, or location.

We believe in open source and the vast majority of our work is available under the GPL. We also contribute to a number of non-profit and open source projects, like, BuddyPress, the P2 theme, and WordPress for Android and iOS.
