With the end of the year, I will be changing jobs. This was not an easy decision to make for me, but in the end I guess it turned out to be the right decision for my career path.
First of all, I would like to stop for a moment and thank my (soon to be ex) colleagues at science+computing ag for the last (almost) three years! During my time at science+computing I learned a lot, not only about technical things, but also about how things work in the industry and related topics, and I was able to grow a lot (as far as I can tell). The problems we solved were challenging and gave me the opportunities I needed to enhance my skills in the field of Linux, packaging, programming and development, but also in negotiating with colleagues or customers on both technical and social issues!
I especially want to thank my team for these fun times, awesome team-dynamics and a team lead that was always there when needed, easy to talk to and for the freedom they gave the team in making their own decisions!
Starting next year, I will be joining a new company (I am not yet sure whether I am allowed to talk about details) which will give me even more options to grow my development skills, especially in the Rust ecosystem – which is I am really looking forward to! I am intrigued about what challenges I will be asked to solve and am really looking forward to meeting my new colleagues.
If I am allowed to talk about details of my work (which might actually be allowed), I will post here and, of course, on my mastodon account!
