I expect that one of the upsides of this current economic downturn is that for one reason or another some - perhaps many - good, creative, intelligent people will find themselves looking for work. It behooves good, creative, intelligent companies to grab such people up as quick as they can before things rebound and there’s jobs-aplenty.
One person currently available is Reg Braithwaite whose skills as a software developer/management skills and experience I will not do justice to through my description here. You should just check out his resume and then his github page and then go read his other, now-defunct blog and then google him. You’ll be impressed, I promise.
Good people help retain good people. Good people with notoriety attract good people. I have a very small “brand,” but for all that it is very specific and should not be carelessly wasted. I’m looking for the type of company where we can put “The Braithwaite Effect” to work attracting and retaining the very best people. - One reason to hire me that isn’t obvious from reading my resume
That I could, I would.
