New job at BAO Systems: Chief Unicorn Wrangler

As some of you may have seen on LinkedIn, I am now working full-time for BAO Systems. I tried to get a silly¬†new title, but I figured “Senior Software Architect” would be a bit more professional. This is somewhat a return to familiar ground as I will be helping move research forward for many NGOs (PEPFAR, International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders, …).

The timing of this change is perfect. My previous government contract¬†wouldn’t let me work remotely, promoted a hostile work environment, and were more concerned with appearances than national cyber security. Now I get to work remotely with an international team, promote international health and safety, and through it all, save lives. I can’t complain much about that.

I was removed from the government contract for insubordination. Someday I may write about it. If you want the details sooner we can talk over a cold bottle of root beer at php|world.
