Week One In the Bag

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Five days into the Etsy tenure and other than a sloppy focus mishap (damn you Mac!) and feeling like my brain is going to get heartburn (telencephalon-burn?) from all the information I’ve digested, I’d say it went pretty well.

Actually, better than well. I can’t stop talking about this place. Dogs in the office? Awesome. My own lab coat? Awesome. Telephone booths? Awesome. Craft night? Awesome. Eatsy? Delicious. Having one of these in our kitchen? Awesome.

Most importantly, the people? Incredibly smart, talented, hard working and–wait for it–awesome.

Oh wait, I haven’t even talked about the work! How many places are there where you can go from zero to production deploy on day one? Or find yourself the subject of CTO tweet and team leader blog post?

Like I said, I can’t stop talking about this place. The good news? You can experience it for yourself because we’re hiring in NY and SF!

Switching teams tomorrow. Postgres and Python, here I come.

Oh, and we’re going to give it another go with the Mac. Anyone know if those things support sloppy focus yet? Also is spaces anything close to decent yet? (i.e. can you wrap and drag windows amongst spaces?)
