Leaving one opportunity…
The last couple months, I’ve been on the job
market; my previous
employer, mLab, was acquired by MongoDB and there wasn’t a
good role for a full-time Pythonista with my particular open source baggage on
the other side of that transition.
mLab was a great place to work and (per my 2016 post) a staunch supporter of my OSS, both
re: time on the clock and real-world use cases. Fabric 2 might not have seen
the light of day otherwise!
I’ve been absolutely
#blessed with a deluge of job leads big and small, far
and wide; the process has been exhausting, but also invaluable both for
connections and gauging the state of the industry. (Actually industries, plural
– not just tech, but finance, healthcare, rocketry and more!)
…and joining another
As of today, I’ve accepted an offer to join a high-frequency trading company
called Jump Trading, out of their New York City
office. I’ll start in early February.
