Today is my last day at Isobar. While I’m going to talk more about the new job on Monday, I won’t keep you in suspense. I’m going to Sapient Global Markets to build out their front end engineering practice.
Before I move on, I just want to talk a little bit about Isobar. All things considered, Isobar has been great for me. I left Cramer to get closer to emerging technology and to work on harder problems on a daily basis. That’s worked out perfectly as I’ve had real-world experience with just about every new feature out there. Other people might be talking about the web platform and HTML5, I’ve been knee deep in it for over a year and a half.
That’s been very cool.
While that technology experience has been invaluable, the thing about Isobar that will drive me the most at my new job is the challenge of trying to put together a front end engineering team that will match the quality of the one I’m leaving behind. The makeup of the team has changed a lot since my first day*, but the one thing that has remained constant is the exceptional quality of the people we’ve hired and the outstanding quality of the work we’ve produced. It’s been a real pleasure and I’m sure the team will continue to operate at a very high level.
