Hi. I’m Toni Schneider.

I live in San Francisco with my wife Diane, our kids Sophie, Ben, and Owen, and our dogs Pepper and Rufus. I work for Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, and True Ventures, a seed stage VC firm. I like technology startups, cars, and alternative energy. Once upon a time I grew up in Switzerland, then moved to California for college.

Here’s a short bio, a high-res photo, my resume, and a video from 2012 of me talking about my career and what makes Automattic and WordPress successful.

I’m currently involved with these fine companies:

Past companies:

  • Sphere (co-founder, acquired by AOL)
  • Yahoo (VP Developer Network)
  • Oddpost (CEO, acquired by Yahoo)
  • Uplister (CEO)
  • Aureal Semiconductor (VP Technology, acquired by Creative Labs)
  • Crystal River Engineering (Software Engineer, acquired by Aureal)

  3. Hello Toni,

    At the outset, I would like to thank you for giving us such a great platform for expressing ourselves. I had always loved writing, but did not have the avenue to do it. WordPress has shown me the way. And, I have just added https://toni.org/ to my blog roll, as I felt that my work will always remain incomplete, if I do not acknowledge the contribution that you have made to me and numerous others.

    Best regards
