As some of you may have already noticed: I’m a shame to the blogger community. Last blog post from July… well…
Just to keep you informed what has happened since then: I was in Tokyo, Japan, as an Interim CTO for Piku, the Japanese sister company of DailyDeal. This was a very interesting experience I’m very thankful for, for several reasons: It’s great to be in a culture so different from your own and to get the chance not only to be there for holidays, but also for living and work for 2.5 months! Another fabulous thing was to be part of two companies with an identical business model but different people and a different company culture. It’s a fantastic opportunity to look around, to compare what you see with your past experiences, and so to get some “lessons learned” insights very quickly. I also loved to share them (and I’d love to go more into detail for you, but I think even my generously open clients wouldn’t be very happy about it) .
Anyway, when I came home, the next challenge was already awaiting me:
As an Interim CTO for Rebate Networks, which is the company behind Piku, DailyDeal and about 25 other countries all over the world, my days are currently stuffed with tons of fun and interesting work to do. As you can imagine, this job is pretty international. And everybody who knows me a little bit will guess that our processes are set up “the Agile way”. Besides that, there are so many technological challenges to solve that you probably won’t get bored for quite a long time :-).
Apropos “you” and “technological challenges”: If you are a real kick-ass developer and you are looking for an amazingly exciting job with lots of passion, fun and professionalism: Yes, we hire! :-)))
See you at the Backfabrik (which will be our new home in a couple of days),
