WordPress Consulting

I’ve been working full-time in WordPress for over 13 years. I’ve spent the past 5 years focused on WordPress in the enterprise and the past 2 years focused on helping technology companies grow through WordPress. Companies I’ve served as an advisor to include Google, BigCommerce, HubSpot, Automattic, WP Engine, Adobe, Cloudinary, and dozens more.

I think about WordPress from an ecosystem perspective. WordPress is an “operating system” for the Open Web. For anyone who wants to grow on the Open Web they should have a solid understanding of WordPress, its history, its future, and how to best integrate (or not) with WordPress and its ecosystems.

My specialty is WordPress strategy. If you’re looking for help growing an existing technology product or launching a new product, I’d love to be help.

Availability: I’m now employed at Automattic and am unavailable for consulting work. Updated November 20, 2019.

Looking for someone to work with? Drop me an email and tell me more about what you’re trying to get done and I’ll do my best to connect you with someone who can help.


Jonathan has been pivotal in helping our team understand how we could fit in the WordPress community and how to think about plugin development and distribution. He accelerated our learning from potentially months or years into weeks.

Within our first conversation, Jonathan improved our understanding of WordPress, the community, and key aspects of our strategy that needed to change. His ability to quickly articulate plans that set your company apart and lift up the WordPress ecosystem should put him at the top of your list when looking for ways to maximize impact.

I highly recommend Jonathan Wold for any company looking for help on their WordPress strategy. He was instrumental in helping migrate some of the largest media sites in Australia to WordPress
