Our 2017: An Amazing Year of Growth & Wins

2017 was a wild year of tremendous growth for us. We expanded our team with 115 new talented members, we went local in Italy and even added Australia to our remote team map. And all the while we are proud to have nurtured the amazing team spirit that makes SiteGround what it is! We raised the bar on our customer service even higher and added new powerful solutions for more speed and security of your websites. But the biggest appreciation, again, came from you - our clients, who rated our services with 97% satisfaction rate in our latest annual survey!

To express our gratitude, we hand-crafted a couple of exclusive, wooden tabletop calendars which we will give away to 50 of you who share our year in review.

The Mysterious Job of a Kernel Developer: An Interview with a SiteGrounder

There’s a lot of work involved in crafting a great hosting product. Part of our efforts to guarantee that our clients' websites perform better in all circumstances, is our unique hosting infrastructure built entirely on Linux containers. The specifics of this custom setup require a special kind of talent and skill set to maintain it - that of a Linux Kernel developer.

Communities, WordPress, and now SiteGround too – that is what I do and love!

Photo by Roberto Cortese

This September I joined the SiteGround team. This was a move from freelancing to working for a big company. I was a little anxious about such a serious change. However, it actually felt like quite a natural development. Now, as part of the SiteGround team, I will spend even more time doing what I truly love - being actively involved with the WordPress community. For the past few years I have organized regular WordPress meetups and a WordCamp in my hometown - Torino, Italy. I have also participated in the organization of WordCamp Europe. Now I will continue to be part of these and even more WordPress events. I will keep sharing my experience and volunteering with my time for the WordPress community. What is new is that I will also be part of one of the most amazing teams I have previously only met at WordCamps -- the people of SiteGround. Read below to see how I've ended up here and what is coming.

My First Work (& Kite Boarding) Week as CMO of SiteGround

Last week was my first as CMO of SiteGround. Joining a new company, I had to learn a lot: its history, goals and challenges; business processes and everyday hacks. I wanted to become a real part of the organization and start contributing to its success as soon as possible. That said, I was expecting to spend my first week in meeting rooms and office tours. Oddly enough, I got to spend it on a Greek island instead, where my team-to-be was working remotely and learning to kiteboard. Ultimately, we all got back with a lot more than new surf skills and a suntan. Here is what my first week taught me about the company, and about working and managing a diverse team in a new field.
