Michael Koenig is a serial tech entrepreneur, experienced Chief Operating Officer, and a passionate promoter of remote work.
As an early employee at Automattic, the makers of the website platform WordPress, he got his first taste of working for an entirely distributed company spread across hundreds of locations, and the operational challenges that remote work brings. At Automattic, he helped scale their operations and increase their market share to power over 35% of websites.
Most recently, Michael joined Time Doctor as the company’s first COO to further his goal of accelerating the world’s transition to remote work, and to build out all teams and operations within the organization.
Through his years of leadership experience at Automattic, Time Doctor, and Lunar Labs, he participates as a Techstars mentor and serves as a board member and advisor to startups and nonprofits.
After moving around the US, Michael has settled in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his wife and two kids. He is a bass guitarist, spy novel fan, and aspiring sleeper.
