Job transition: from Amazon to Google

categories: technical-writing

I recently switched jobs from Amazon to Google. I'm still in the Bay area right now, but in a couple of weeks I'll be relocating to Seattle. I had been at Amazon in Sunnyvale for nearly 5 years and was ready for a change. Plus, I've always been captivated by the ambitiousness of Google. I will continue to post regularly on my blog and API course. Just a reminder: my views are always my own and never any representation of a company. I'm excited for the upcoming challenges and other new encounters at Google. I like experiences that reshape my thinking processes, invite me to try new things, and present challenges to overcome.
