Hi, I’m Dean Burton 👋
I live and work remotely in Spain, from the fantastic city of Sevilla! 🇪🇸 I’m originally from Bristol in the UK (fun fact, I intended to stay in Spain for a year, but I never left!).
I’m Chief Operating Officer for WP Buffs and I oversee day-to-day operations and lead our success teams.
I’m used to tackling challenges around customer happiness, customer success, churn reduction, retention, operations, and MRR growth and I love what I do!
Here, I write about all things MRR, SaaS, WordPress and remote work!
In 2018 I launched Seville Remote Workers, an online and in real-life community for remote workers…in Seville! I grew the community from 0 to over 1,500 active online community members. I hold regular IRL meet-ups in Seville for remote workers and remote workers use the community to meet people working around the city and get recommendations on coworking spaces.
Soon to launch sevilleremoteworkers.com which will be crammed with resources to help remote workers navigate Seville life!
