Two weeks ago, I started at Tiny Speck as their engineering manager, working on Slack. Slack is getting bigger in almost every way that matters and I'm excited about getting to take part in it.
So what does taking this particular role at this particular company mean to me? It means I'm working for the same people that built the company that hired me that moved me from the east coast to San Francisco. It means I'm managing at a company that shaped most of my thoughts about software development and how to build products that people love. It also means I get to take those experiences and principles and help build frameworks where we keep doing those good things but at a different scale than we are all used to.
So, is this a little scary? You betcha. Am I excited? Oh yeah.
