Its with a sad heart that I write that I’m no longer part of the wonderful team at EllisLab.
When I joined the company in 2007, there were interesting challenges ahead. I got to be the only developer working full time to bring ExpressionEngine2 to market, and along the way got to envision, design and build some of the most interesting aspects of it - the configurable publish screen and the file manager, among others.
After ExpressionEngine2 made it to market, I had the opportunity to really dig into a new challenge, a new product, with no legacy and no expectations. It was a joy to bring MojoMotor to market. I spent my days dreaming about how it would work, how people would interact with it, and even fussed over little details like naming and icons. It was a lot of fun. MojoMotor has only been available for a short time now, but it is by all measures a success.
EllisLab has a strong core of products now, and a large, engaged community; and also a new management and a new direction. The type of challenges that excite me, that drive me, aren’t available anymore, and so while it appears sudden to some, my time at EllisLab has reached a natural conclusion.
I’m off now seeking new opportunities and the next challenge. I remain passionate about what I do, and what I’m good at - building fun, engaging software.
