Moving On

« »

Everything we ever start will eventually end. It’s the natural cycle of things. We can’t avoid it. For me, the time has come, and my last day at Mozilla will be December 31st, 2013.

Working for Mozilla has been the most challenging, rewarding part of my career so far. Working with great people like Laura Thomson, not to mention the talented team on which I serve, has been tremendously amazing. It’s made me a better engineer with a greater perspective on the world and the way in which professionals in our field work. To say that I’ll miss it would be the understatement of the year.

But all things must come to an end. For me, it’s time to move on, to branch out, to go out on my own and do my own thing. In 2014, I’ll be focusing my energy on teaching what I’ve learned, sharing what I know and building the communities that I’ve come to care about.

Even though ending my employment at Mozilla will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done, I know that I don’t leave Mozilla entirely. You can’t leave Mozilla – Mozilla is an idea, a set of ideals, of principles to live by and to move the web forward with. I’ll still be involved in various bits and pieces, and my love of the open web and user privacy won’t ever fade.

To those I leave behind, godspeed and good luck. And to the future web we’ll all build together, I say bring it on!
