Aubrey Portwood

Senior Backend Engineer
Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States

Aubrey began his WordPress journey over ten years ago, where he built his alma mater’s first WordPress theme when WordPress was just 2.2. Knowing WordPress was the future of the Web, he worked any job he could get building WordPress themes, plugins, and other solutions as a freelancer. In April 2015, Aubrey decided to take a chance at getting his dream job, one at WebDevStudios, and has been working here ever since!

Aubrey is a veteran Senior Backend Engineer here at WebDevStudios, and today you’ll likely find him taking care of our enterprise level projects, figuring out large-scale site migrations, and maintaining a slew of internal tools like our own coding standards. Aubrey can figure just about anything out, is detail oriented, organized, prides himself in his stellar communication style and nothing gets by him in a project!

If Aubrey isn’t plugging away at a WordPress site, he’s probably pounding the fuzz off a Tennis ball, being an out-numbered male in his household with his wife and two daughters, or reading a good book on Stoicism.

The best part of working at “WebDev”

The best part of working at WebDev is the relationships we’ve all built with each other as a team. WebDev has a family-feel atmosphere where everyone works closely together and we can often be found chatting, laughing and joking around. And even when we’re grinding on a project, you can still really count on that vibe keeping us all going. We all start (and end) the day together, and that’s what I love about working at WebDev the most! — Aubrey
