I've accepted a contractor position at Barracuda Networks as a Cloud Network Engineer. I'll be starting pretty much immediately.
What does this mean for Mozdev? Well, a mix of things. I'm not going away will be the first thing I can assure everyone. I've really enjoyed my time here and I feel that I've been able to bring a lot of great features to the community. Of course, Mozdev itself is going through some changes which I plan on being a part of.
Moving to a new position is exciting for me. Doubly so because I get to work with my friends again (even if remotely). I'm looking forward to working with a team of people again and getting back into sysadmin. My divergence into development the past 4 years has been very enjoyable and I've learned a lot about proper development techniques and design and I think my experience there will help out a lot as I move forward.
My big tasks at Mozdev right now are trying to slim down our server infrastructure; mainly getting rid of any servers that we pay for (AWS and our development server). My other big task is documenting my day-to-day activities and try to organize tasks in a way that others can easily jump in and help out.
If you're interested in helping out at Mozdev, please let us know. We're really hoping Mozdev can continue supporting the Mozilla community.
As for my new job, I'm excited to be starting a new career with some old friends. I'm sure it's going to be a blast!
