I’ve taken a big step in my career. I’ve become a software consultant.
The decision to leave my job of three and a half years wasn’t an easy one. I was working with some fantastic people, building the best software we could, but at the end of the day I wasn’t learning. The work was challenging, but the challenges were mostly non-technical. In this business, if you’re not moving forward you may as well lay down and die. I couldn’t change my situation, so I said my goodbyes and left.
Instead of settling in somewhere else for another long haul, I felt it was time for a change of pace. Now I get to hop from organization to organization working on new problems and broadening my skill set in the most efficient way possible. I might settle down if a good opportunity comes along, but for now I’m enjoying the freedom.
I’m currently working on a fun little contract, but I’ll be looking for my next opportunity soon.
If you want help designing or building awesome software that delights users, we should talk. I’d be happy to put my experience to work building you exactly what you need.
