All right, so: people have been asking (because a certain someone *cough*Beth*cough* leaked the information), and the answer is yes: I has new job. That’s right, after a dozen years out of the paying workforce, I’m BACK, baby!
And I couldn’t have asked for a better fit for my situation of still needing to be the primary caregiver (which, these days, involves fewer bodily fluids but more gasoline). I will be working from right here in front of my own computer – which is where I spend most of my time anyway, if you ask my family.
More importantly than anything else, though, is this is a fantastic group of people with a product you may already have heard me waxing rhapsodic about in the past, well before any sort of paid employment was on the table. I will be doing email support for Agilebits, the makers of 1Password.
If you don’t know what 1Password is, you and I probably haven’t spoken computer-talk in years. I advocate it to everyone in this day and age of simultaneous increasing hacking vulnerabilities and more and more of our sensitive information being stored online. Some way to manage all of your various passwords has become essential, and nobody does it better than Agilebits. What makes them such a good company is they’re a group of people who truly love and believe in what they do — so naturally, they do it well. And it’s an infectious spirit to be around and be a part of. I really can’t imagine a better fit for me, in many ways.
So that’s all the news that’s fit to print for now. Today was my first day, and my head is still swimming a bit. Gotta go catch some shut-eye.
