“WordPress has a lot of value because it has a great community”

Jimmy Rosén

One of our Admin sponsors is Angry Creative. We’ve interviewed their CEO Jimmy Rosén about why they are choosing to support our community.

Can you tell us what your organisation does?

We build WooCommerce/e-commerce sites, marketing websites, intranets, and web applications using WordPress. A big part of our business is high-quality WordPress maintenance.

We work very hard at being a good fit for medium- and large-sized clients who want Enterprise-grade WordPress solutions with extreme uptime, while still maintaining the great bang for the buck that you have in your average freelancer. There’s a lot of people thats really good at building good-looking marketing websites, but there’s not a lot that do great maintenance. And its not strange at all; Maintenance is super-duper hard.

How does WordPress affect your business?

We more or less do only WordPress jobs, so WordPress is really important to us. What started as a dorm room project a world away is now how most of us put food on the table, so of course its important. We follow the changelogs and whats happening in the community carefully since everything has great impact for us and our clients.

How can WordCamp Stockholm and its attendees help the Swedish WordPress community?

When clients buy any kind of implementation that uses Open Source software someone must be responsible for that software. What we sell is our competence as WordPress developers and we try to do this with an Open-source business model. We sell our time and don’t package plugins or themes as “products” or charge based on “perceived value”. As such, the WordPress community is really important to us. We believe in a certain code of conduct, and talking about values and how you achieve your goals is important to us.

WordPress has a lot of value because it has a great community. By talking in the open about our values we will build a great community and more of us sell “the same thing”, which in turn will create a situation where clients are better at buying the kinds of services that we all provide.

Where do you think WordPress is and where does it fit in 5 years from now?

I think WordPress will be even more popular. It will have the ease of implementation and the rapid builds that we are accustomed to, but I think as a product it will be a more enterprise-friendly than it is today.

What opportunities are you hoping for at this WordCamp?

I hope to connect with a few developers that are serious with WordPress and would like to do other things than building simple marketing websites all day! We’re hiring!
