It’s been almost two months since my last day at Endless, and some people keep asking me what am I up to now. The change was nothing top-secret so I told my closest friends and colleagues about what I was doing, but I have been so busy — first with the job change, personal life (whose events I will leave for a later post), then with some vacation time in Portugal, and this past week with my son’s first days in the Kindergarten — that I kept neglecting writing a post about that.
I had met Endless when it was still a small startup, in a shared working space in San Francisco, and joined it a few years after that, because it was all I could think about. Having spent almost 4 years with the company, it is and will always be a special place for me, not only because of its mission, but also because of its people and the experiences we shared, and I will keep rooting for their success.
So “where” am I currently? I am still a
doughnut resident of Berlin and I have been working with the great people at Kinvolk on its new products (more details to be announced soon). This is a temporary/contractor position though, so we’ll see what happens in a few months, but I am enjoying what I am doing and that I get to spend some time with the folks at the Berlin office.
Kinvolk is also a very special company to me. I have been friends with Chris and Iago (two of the three co-founders) for years, having introduced them to each other and followed the company creation/growth closely since then (also worked for a while from their first office when I moved to Berlin).
This friendship was the reason I always pushed back on the idea of joining them (I didn’t want to risk spoiling it with any eventual work conflicts), but this temporary job was the perfect opportunity with the perfect timing; so I am looking forward to seeing the company’s growth from the inside now, and contribute to it as much as I can.
Kinvolk is also still hiring, so if you are interested in joining, check out the careers page.
And that’s it for now. As usual, I hope I can keep posting more frequently. We’ll see 🙂
