October 31, 2019 Update: Today I said farewell to 10up. I’ve loved my just-shy-of 15 months there. Satisfying challenges and personal growth growth galore. Some of the highest-functioning professionals I’ve ever encountered. I hate to leave, but it’s time for some deep rest after too many years of too much stress. So I’m taking a sabbatical. I’ll start thinking about what’s next in a few months.
10up just released a marketing video that’s a good excuse to finally make an announcement here:
Monday, July 23rd was my first day as a Senior Web Engineer at 10up.
I’ve always been impressed with 10up’s professional and competent appearance, and they back it up with quality delivery. Their reputation as a leader in the WordPress space is well deserved. But, I didn’t anticipate what it’s like to experience this company from the inside.
Three weeks in, I’m thrilled at what a joy it is to be here. Everyone on the team is not only talented, but a pleasure to work with. It’s the best mix of friendly, supportive, and empowering that I’ve ever experienced in the workplace — and honestly a stunning contrast with our professional reputation. Work/life balance and ensuring people are happy feels like it’s priority number one. (I have the sense that it hasn’t always been this way, so I feel lucky to’ve joined at a point in company history where we’ve figured a few things out!)
I’m excited to see what the future holds!
Here’s that video:
