Shifter turns one! Looking back on our first year of Serverless WordPress Hosting

1 year ago at WordCamp US 2016 in Philadelphia, we launched Shifter.

Our mission was to bring Static Site Generators and Serverless to WordPress Hosting. To our customers and fans we wanted to say, thank you! It’s has been your continued support that has allowed us to develop these ideas and collaborate over the last year.

We started with an idea of creating a Static Site Generator for WordPress and ended up with a fully-managed Serverless WordPress Hosting Platform. A lot has happened over the past year and we wanted to take a moment to look back, celebrate and recognize everything we’re thankful for.

Shifter by the numbers


We’ve sponsored 3 WordCamps, 2 ServerlessConfs, and 1 reInvent with totaling a combined travel of 65,000+ miles.

Speaking and Shoutouts

Our team members spoke at 6 WordCamps, twice at 1 ServerlessConf, 1 AWS Community Day, 1, DevOpsDays, 2 local WordPress Meetups, 4 Stripe events, plus got a mention at WordCamp Montreal and WordCamp Europe.
