A month ago I blogged about my social search for that next great job for me. The outpouring of support from the community was fantastic I want to thank everyone that reached out to wish me luck and offer me advice. Along this journey I had some great conversations. I appreciate those who were in a similar position sharing their experience and helping reach out to recruiters and hiring managers they spoke with as well as friends who went above and beyond to advocate for me internally. I had some great options before me that could take me to a customer role, working for a partner, or stay in the vendor space.
Just got the most fantastic news! Details will come in a few days. #excited

A few of you might have seen this tweet, and while I wasn’t about share the exact details at that time, I had in fact received an offer letter that I was more than excited to sign and return. So without any further delay, on Monday I will start my new job as a Solutions Architect for SimpliVity!
As I understand it, SimpliVity combines the responsibilities of SEs and SAs into one role and I couldn’t be more excited! I have been following the hyper converged industry for the past year and I have been really impressed with SimpliVity’s approach to the topic. While this is going to be a bit different for me since I haven’t formally done this kind of work before, I believe my time in Technical Support and Marketing will allow me to bring a unique perspective to this role. Look for future blog posts as I learn more about the technology and the industry.
