Earlier this year I picked up what was supposed to be a very short contract with DuckDuckGo. However DuckDuckGo was no ordinary client. They do incredible privacy work and I found their vision genuinely inspiring. DuckDuckGo has big mobile plans and when the topic of permanent employment came up, I realised that I wanted stay on and help make those plans a reality. I accepted a full-time job in June!
So after years of consulting, it’s time to wind down Subsymbolic Software Ltd and move on. It’s been fun, I’ve learned a ton and worked with some incredible people. A special thank you goes out to Mike Ritchie from 13coders who was the Software Development Manager at my first big contract and fostered a culture of collaboration and clean code which I will carry through my career.
