Here I am, back at Google for my fourth first day at this crazy company. And I couldn't be more excited. I spent the last few months investigating opportunities all around the world, primarily at companies under 100 people, but at the end of the day, my real criteria for this next move were these:
- Role: Some combination of software engineering and product management with a road to primarily product work.
- Team: Smart, passionate people who will challenge me every day.
- Problem: Work on something socially important. Provide real value for real people.
- Technology: Web and mobile software.
- Location: New York City.
And strangely enough, after a whole year of discussions with Google, they finally offered me exactly that.
