Well, lots have changed recently. As the title says, new beginnings….
So, I have for a while been contemplating getting a real job. I had hoped to work remotely with somebody but that left me with few options.
I got an email 2 weeks ago from my blog from a recruiter. I know, great yet another recruiter email. The position sounded interesting and I replied to the recruiter. Long story short, the recruiter, David Claeys with Tech Recruitment, got me an interview with the company and I started last Wednesday.
I just started working at Unitedweb/Nextiva. I am the first Rails dev there. All of the other developers are either Java or Python/Django people. I am working on a legacy Rails app and I am to teach RoR to others there to work on the app with me.
One thing that I have to say is that Unitedweb/Nextiva is an awesome place to work. I was so worried about going back to working in an office for the first time in 5 years. Needless to say, it does not feel like I am working in an office and for that I am grateful.
What does this mean for Rebel Outpost? Business as usual. I will still continue to look for more contract work. I still want to be able to teach others and be a big part of the local Ruby community. So as far as I am concerned there is no end in site…
