To be honest, this isn’t a post I thought I would ever write. Not because I thought I’d never leave BuzzFeed, but because I always thought there were enough “I’m leaving my company” Medium posts out there in the world. However, as I’ve gone through the process of telling people I care about that…
This is a simple post, but it took many years to write.
One of the challenges that seems to constantly gnaw at you as a leader is the never ending search for profound — yet eloquently succinct — way for you and your team to focus squarely on what matters most.
Awesome seeing you here in the FEWD program and actively participating in our slack community! It will not take you long to catch up to me at all. Keep up the stellar work and enjoy the journey. I look forward to reviewing your future projects along with your future posts.
Congrats to the two graduates! They worked very hard to make this transition and their positions are well-deserved.
Also, a big round of applause to everyone at Instacart involved in allowing this to happen and helping to make it a reality. It is wonderful that we can work together to create these sorts of opportunities…
Instsacart built its own bootcamp to help current non-technical employees become engineers. Upon completion of the program two graduates went through internships and are now full-time engineers on our team.
