A New World
BuzzFeed and the like have a lot of these articles where they tell you this many things that you should do before you are 20, or 25, or 30. Well, too bad I've done none of those... except for one single thing that has been on my bucket list to do before reaching the 25 mark:
Have my own tech start-up company
I am glad to announce that I am now switching to write some kick-ass code full-time at Esplorio, the beloved start-up company where I began my career, with a slightly different title: CTO & Co-founder (aka Chief Keyboard Warrior).
The past 2 years and 10 months with Ocado has been a great great time. I've built a tonne of things, learnt a lot and made many good friends. But working on 2 things at the same time was draining, and as soon as I managed to match the number of working hours at Esplorio with my full-time job at Ocado, I knew that I needed to end it otherwise I'd just crash and burn.
To put it in a geeky way, it has been a great honour to serve on the Battlestar Galactica, but my heart and mind now belongs to the Serenity. Good bye, Ocado. I wish you all the best in your world grocery domination quest.
Yep, so basically, I am ditching a well-paid, stable job for a fancy title and get poorer. What not to love?
Welcome to a new world, I guess?
