|I wanted to send out a quick letter of appreciation to the HN community for helping me make a connection with an awesome company, who later made me an offer, which I happily accepted.|
Last month, I posted my resume on the "Who wants to be hired?" thread , and was contacted by several companies, many of which were relevant to what I was looking for, both in a company and in a position.
After a few rounds of interviews, one of those companies, Kaggle , decided to make me an offer, and within a couple of days, I accepted. Not only do I get to work with an awesome team on a great product, but I get to do it all from home. And, I get to travel to the great San Francisco a few times a year and meet face-to-face with the folks I will be working with.
My last day with my previous company was Friday, and I will be joining Kaggle two weeks from today. I will be spending this time off building my dream setup in my new office upstairs.
The main reason I posted this was just as a thanks to those that allowed that thread, and those that helped keep the thread active.
The secondary reason was to hopefully hear some success stories others may have had from the thread.
The third reason was to let others know that the thread was successful, and that I see value in it as a recurring whoishiring thread, benefiting others in the HN community looking for a good fit.
The fourth reason was to encourage those of you looking to get hired to post in this month's thread , as it may very well help connect you with your next opportunity.
