So what's next...

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Wednesday, August 25. 2010 in Personal

Yes, the rumors are true. As anyone who follows me on twitter knows following my tweet, I will be leaving VMware. The experience has been incredible, and being with VMware was the end of a journey started about 10 years ago when I first joined Covalent. Following some "interesting" events within that company, Covalent emerged as a premier FOSS-related business and as CTO I was able to continue working with Mark and Ryan to grow the company. We were so successful that SpringSource took notice of our products, or business plan and our customer base and decided they wanted in, and so they bought the company. At SpringSource I was, in addition to other tasks, the tech lead and developer for a project that became one of the most significant (if not the most significant) products for the company. And after around 2 years, SpringSource was so successful that VMware took notice and bought us. Now after a year, it is time to move on. I'm ready for new challenges and new opportunities. I'm looking for a place that can benefit from my talents, experience and expertise as much as Covalent/SpringSource/VMware has. I'm ready to make a difference and an impact... Know of any places that might be interested? Let me know. Thanks.

    Hi Jim, I wish you all the best for your future. I've left VMW in March, because S2 wasn't S2 anymore. This is the second time, I've "lost a home" (the first time was when Borland bought TogetherSoft). In my opinion, it's all about start-up-culture vs. established-company-culture (hope you can follow my English ;-)). And so I wish for you, that you'll find another exciting and creative start-up company with open-minded people around you! Christiane

    So after you've made 2 companies successful, you're saying VMware is just hopeless and you're moving elsewhere?
