Effective June 1st, after nearly 14 years as independent consultant I’ve joined the Swiss based company IBV as Senior Software Development Engineer, decision comes from the great work and career opportunity the company offered me just at a time when I was felting the need for new working stimuli.
How this is going to change my life? not much indeed I’ll probably have to visit Switzerland more often and enjoy beautiful landscapes like this while driving to work
and focus more on Natural User Experience (like Surface Hub and Hololens)
The initial days I’ve spent in the near Zurich based office were really enjoyable, I’ve smelt the typical ‘startup’ like energy even if the company is now 35 years old.
Another unexpected surprise was to discover that one of my new colleagues was my good old friend Alessandro Teglia who also joined as Chief Digital Officer.
It was when the company’s boss, just after signing the contract, gave me this talisman, that I realized I did one of the best decision in my life and I thank fate for this.
Last but not least, my “boss” (well, sound strange for me to call it “my boss” ) Gian Paolo Santopaolo, who is not only a great professional (and MVP like me) but also very great cook, he can do little food masterpieces in minutes.
Regarding my community commitments, nothing changes, I’ll try to blog more about my new job (BTW: follow our company twitter account https://twitter.com/IbvSolutions) and, as usual, I’ll spread my technology passion as I always did in the past.
I wish you all to work in a lovely place as IBV, it’s just there and fate will certainly let you find it, just don’t give up searching.
