Hi 👋 — I'm Lauren Davis Smith, a Senior Director of Engineering, working @Automattic on @WooCommerce — We are the company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Tumblr, Pocket Casts, and Gravatar to name a few

I've been working on the web since building my first website on AngelFire in 1998. Over the past 7 years I've been focusing on serving in engineering leadership roles for both @Automattic and previously @Thomson_Reuters

I'm an expert JavaScript engineer having spent many years on both the server & client side. My projects have spanned from Fortune 500 companies ( Thomson Reuters, Home Depot ) to startups ( Koken ), advisory ( Moutn ), and everything in between. Over the years my work has been nominated for a Webby, featured in tech blogs and been through multiple acquisitions.

If you are looking to contact me ( and don't already have my email address ) please reach out through LinkedIn
