Monday will mark my first day at 10gen as Director EMEA. Why leave a very successful Irish startup, FeedHenry for a new position in 10gen I hear you ask?
Well, it’s not everyday you get a opportunity to work for a company that is changing the world of Enterprise Data, Hugh McLeod famously challenged Microsoft to “Change The World or Go Home” and that’s exactly what 10gen is doing with MongoDB. With 4 million downloads and counting and enormous credibility amongst the code cutters who actually build software everyday this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Its also Open Source which is something I have been passionate about ever since installing my first GNU C compiler in 1989.
What will I be doing for 10gen? I think my boss Ron Avnur described it best: my job will be to help 10gen customers become successful using MongoDB.
I will continue to be a booster for FeedHenry and I wish everyone in that company the best of success.
