I'm Joost de Valk, founder and CEO at Yoast. Ask me anything!May. 31, 2017
I've been using WordPress since 2006 and contributing to it since 2007. I founded Yoast in 2010. Yoast now has 50+ employees that serve 6.5 million websites (and many more people) using our plugin. This whole ride still leaves me pinching myself every once in a while, but it's certainly been great.
I run Yoast together with Michiel, Omar and my awesome wife Marieke. Marieke and I also have 4 kids and we live about 1 kilometer away from the Yoast office, in Wijchen, the Netherlands.
I'm passionate about LEGO, open source, open standards and their applications, as well as entrepreneurship in general.
I’ve got my coffee ready, so: ask me anything!
