It’s true. I’m not sure what the next thing is going to be yet, but I’ve given my notice at Sapient. My last day will be the 30th of November.
Sapient is an incredible company and the people there are great, but the role wasn’t a great fit with my current interests and long-term goals. It’s been a great experience, but, after taking some time to think about it in between spoonfuls of Roman gelato, I decided that it was time to move on to something new. It’s been a hard decision since the team we’ve built here is so great, but I’m confident this is the best direction for me right now.
So, why not wait it out until I have that something new in place before giving notice? Why not? I’ve got some money saved up, I haven’t had any break in between jobs since 2006 and I’d like to focus completely on finding the right opportunity without having to fit it in in the middle of a high intensity full-time job.
While my intent is to find another full-time job, I’m also completely open to freelance opportunities, so if you’ve got either a full-time role for a senior front end engineer or a really cool freelance project coming up, I’d love to hear about it.
Can we talk?
I’d also like to get out and do some presentations. I’ve had just a handful of opportunities over the past year, so if you’re running a conference, user group or are an organization looking to bring someone in to talk about emerging web technologies, I’d love to hook you up with the good stuff.
