Last post I wrote about my decision to leave JPL. Now about where I'm going...
Aw, c'mon, you had to know I had something in the works. This move is more about running to something exciting than it is about running away from anything.
I was fortunate enough to have several opportunities to choose from. Money wasn't really much of a factor (once you cover food and shelter, anything else is gravy anyway). Yeah, I got a little more...but I also passed on a lot more. This was more about doing work that excites me with people who share that passion.
One opportunity stood out: cutting edge work that I care about, the chance to work with people I like and respect, and a company that went the extra mile to let me know that they wanted me in particular.
I still have to pass a drug test (no worries - steroids don't improve your apps skills, so there's no point) and a background check (that could be tricky if they go back to my college days) but, assuming that goes well, I'll be joining the team at Innowave Technology. Really looking forward to working Basheer and the group at Innowave! Working together, we're going to make some dents in the universe.
So this is what it's like to really manage your career. Somebody tell LeBron I've got some cool new lessons to share!
Thanks again to the good folks at Talented Apps for inspiring me, and for all the people who have supported me in this. I'm a lucky boy.
We now return you to your regular programming.
