Hi, Oi! Ola! 👋
My name’s Jack Kitterhing and by day I’m the Product Manager at LearnDash.com. A world-class LMS solution that also happens to be a WordPress plugin.
I’m married to my beautiful wife Julyanna who’s from Brasil, if you see me in real life ask me to talk to Portuguese and I’ll fumble my words, panic and then eventually get it right.
On this site you’ll see my personal musings and thoughts in a range of categories but I mostly write about WordPress, SaaS, Hosting, Software and related things.
I started with WordPress at age 12 when I created a site dedicated to retro gaming (think NES, SNES, Gameboy, and the like).
From there I did some small freelance jobs in my spare time for people from all around the world.
My first real job was at WPMU DEV. From there I went to Themeco, founded an image compression plugin, MailPoet (now acquired by Automattic), finally ending up in my current position at LearnDash.
I believe in doing by learning, that’s why you’ll see me have some success like Immerseus which generated over $100,000 revenue.
And then you’ll also see me making the odd strange decision.
Jack has helped us to achieve and maintain the high quality of our software, reducing the release anxiety in our fast-moving engineering team. He brings in-depth knowledge of WordPress internals and ecosystem that is crucial to any team developing for WordPress. Jack is thorough, focused, and dependable – for which we have been delighted to work with him.
