As many of you may already know, my time at InMotion Hosting is ending today to pursue a career at RocketGenius.
The decision to do so certainly wasn’t easy. Any of you who know me, know that I am an extremely loyal person and do not waver in my convictions. In a discussion with Jeff Chandler about the transition to RocketGenius, he reminded me that I had previously stated that it would take a lot to get me to leave InMotion. My response was simply that my goals are far surpassed with RocketGenius and I just need to take a leap of faith.
In my time at InMotion, I have learned a lot. My experiences here have far surpassed my expectations and have skyrocketed my career. Without InMotion, I likely wouldn’t be as active in the WordPress community, or even at all. When I started at InMotion, my skillset was quite basic. A little Linux, a dash hosting, some development, and a hint of marketing. I had no idea that I would be travelling, developing plugins, and expressing my passion for WordPress. InMotion has certainly provided me with those opportunities and I am grateful for each and every one of them.
The decision to join the team at RocketGenius was simply for personal growth. By joining the incredibly talented minds behind GravityForms, I am able to witness product development at its finest. While there are excellent developers at InMotion, WordPress-focused development is quite lacking. In that sense, I was the top of the ladder; the cream of the crop. If you’ve taken a look at my code in the past, I’m far from a senior developer. I can get things done, but I lack the polish that comes from experience. Simply put, I am a sponge that needs to soak up knowledge, and RocketGenius is the fire hose that will give it to me.
I look forward to joining the RocketGenius team next week. Never before have I been so excited for a Monday. A big thanks goes out to InMotion Hosting, the other folks who have helped me get here (I’m looking at you, Jeffro), and the RocketGenius team for giving me a chance. Together, we can change the world.
