Every job has its frustrations. At what point is enough, enough?
You’ve probably heard of mean time between failure or mean time between repair,
I propose a new statistic: mean time between rage.
We’ve revamped the way we conduct interviews over the past 18 months, with great success. Previously, the company
had trouble with hiring, with a few bad apples getting through the process, and being slow to repair the problem.
My leadership peers and I instituted new processes to try to work around these problems, be consistent, and quickly
identify candidates that did not fit within our culture. Of course, the first step is identifying the culture that
you want to create.
I’ve mentored many engineeers throughout my career, either officially or unofficially. These mentorships
were always tied to company where I worked. For no other reason than there was no clear way to handle
those relationships formally, outside of the work place. Meaning, that when I or the mentee left the company,
those mentorships fizzled.
Built the new GitHub pages site, using Jekyll.
Also, updated my resume, bio, and everything else to get
this page ready for me to start blogging again.
Let’s see how long that takes ;)
