about

Olá! I’m José Marques, friends call me Zé. I live in Lisbon, Portugal.

I’m a design director at Automattic. where great products like WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Jetpack and other great things are made.

I studied Computer Science at the University of Lisbon, and started my carrier as software developer. I shifted between design and development for quite a while. In the last 15 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of different industries (finance, insurance, medical research, air and ground transportation, among many others) and technology (web, mobile, stand-alone apps, kiosks, etc).

In 2014 I joined Automattic where I’ve had the opportunity to jump between product design, marketing, and more recently design management.
