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)

  2. Hello Toni,

    I am real interested in finding a diesel landcruiser to run biodiesel. Thanks for the info. I am also here in SF. I have been checking craidslist and ebay for canadian models. I am also researching an engine conversion.



  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

    Arup Deb

  4. Thank you, Toni, for your impressive contributions and for being part of the innovative team at Automattic. Keep up the great work in making the world a better place through social media and connectivity. Happy New Year!
