New Job!

After nearly three years at Intelius, as of December 1 I will be moving to Zulily.com as a senior web developer at a substantial salary increase!

As well as mo' money, I'll also get way more ownership of the product than I have at Intelius, since we're going to be creating a custom e-commerce platform geared to the business model and transaction pattern, and the group of 5-6 senior devs will be collaborating on design. And as a bonus, it's in Pioneer Square! (I've wanted to work in downtown Seattle since I moved to the Puget Sound region twenty years ago.)

Which incidentally means I can easily take the bus to work (and pretty much have to since they don't pay for parking), which means I can now read a lot more than I get to nowadays.

(And by the way, a hearty endorsement to LinkedIn as the facilitator of all this. About a month ago I finally joined up and put in my profile, thinking it was little more than "Facebook for business people", and lo and behold a week after that I started getting emails from recruiters.)

The business is "private sales of upscale baby and mommy clothes and gear at a significant discount". The funny thing is that they do all their photography in-house at the main offices, so walking in was sort of like entering the set of Ugly Betty or The Devil Wears Prada, except that all the clothes on the racks are only thees beeg. :-)
