All change for me

Last week I took the momentous decision to wave goodbye to my friends and colleagues at DRW, and try something new.

I had an amazing 7½ years at DRW, learning so much and making some firm friends. DRW is an excellent company to work for, and this was the longest job I’d ever had. That made the decision to leave extremely hard, but I felt it was time to try something new.

I’m taking a few months off, and then I’m very excited to start work at Coinbase in the summer, where I will be working on making their exchange software even more awesome. I’ll be staying in the Chicago area, so disruption to my family is minimal.

In the next few weeks I’ll be spending a lot of time with my wife and kids, but I also hope to use the time to work on Compiler Explorer and other open source projects. And finally complete Zelda: Breath of the Wild too!
