So long and thank you Amazon

My official last day as an employee of Amazon was January 31st, 2014. After almost seven years it is time to move on. The decision was not an easy one as I really did enjoy most of my time at Amazon and was lucky to work along side some excellent and fun people.

As of Febuary 1st, 2014 I'm officially an employee of Groupon. My first day in the office will be tomorrow - Monday, Febuary 3rd, 2014.

I was not looking to leave Amazon. However after a lunch with a couple of recruiters my interest was piqued. Subsequently,  every interview I had with Groupon was good. I liked the people and got the feeling that the engineers are smart and engaged and really want to take Groupon forward and make it  a stella technology company. I'd like to be part of that.
