What is a Trial?
This is the opportunity to work at Automattic, doing the job you’re applying for. It’s fantastic because you have the opportunity to see if you’d actually like the job and gives Automattic the opportunity to see how well you do the job.
It’s a paid Trial, so it really is a win-win situation. You get to try out the position, paid (this isn’t a salary but $25 hour), and see if you both think it’s a good fit.
