...and now for something completely different!


Previous Entry ...and now for something completely different! Mar. 4th, 2008 @ 02:51 pm Next Entry
 It's official: I've quit my job, effective March 21st.

As of Monday, March 31st, I will officially be joining the evil empire largest most successful software company in the world.

I'll be a Premier Field Engineer for the Microsoft Sharepoint platform, servicing the needs of Microsoft clients around the globe (but heavily focused in the bay area).

Depending on your perspective, this could be a step forward or a step back. It moves back into the technical arena, which is something being in a "strategic" role I've learned I just can't let go of... but this time it's customer facing, deals with a huge number of clients, and lets me see the various technical implementations around the world. I'd say the exposure more than compensates for any backward steps away from management.  Then again... did I really want to be in management anyway? hmmmm....

So... so long Aruba... and thanks for all the stock options. ;)

good luck

Hey--if you see cool pharmaceutical SharePoint implementations, I want to hear about them. If you need time to ski/snowboard, we have open guest rooms. I think you had a nice time on your last visit here, no?

Congratulations! I guess you get to keep your car...

Congratulations &...

Well, evil or not, it's certainly an Empire. Good luck on the transition.
