New job

So this is it, my last week at Viaboxx.

I’ll really miss them, more than any other company I’ve worked for. I had a great time, a great team and learned a whole lot.

If you’re looking for a fine company to work for in the Cologne/Bonn area: they’re hiring to replace me. You can drop me a line if you have any questions.

But all good things must come to an end, and I got an interesting offer from Eyeo, where I’ll mostly be working on Adblock Plus, its various ports and the infrastructure supporting it.

I don’t hate ads – I’m earning some money with ads myself. What I don’t like are overly obtrusive ads, so I’m finding Eyeo’s new acceptable ads concept very promising. I’m excited to work on something that helps millions of people experience a better web and enables website owners to avoid ad-blocking by using non-obtrusive ads at the same time.

Another exciting aspect is that I’ll be working from home full-time, something I’ve been longing to do for a while now. Viaboxx was awesome and allowed me to work from home one day per week, but more than that wouldn’t have worked out. Their core product is software for large, expensive machines – not something you can reasonably work with from home. Anyway, I’m very happy to spend more time with my lovely kids soon – they’ll only grow up this once.
