Next stop: Mozilla






Six months ago I left my previous job, in order to join a product company and experience new things. The move was rewarding in many ways, but most importantly, because of the people I've met. We've accomplished a lot together and laid out the foundations for much more. As I've established before, this is not the right time to be moving on, but while in theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice, they are not. When good fortune knocks on your door, it's a fool who does not answer.

So I am seizing the opportunity to work with some of the best hackers in the world, on a product that I adore, with technologies that until now I had to stay up late at night to use. In a few days I’ll be joining Mozilla to work on Firefox Developer Tools, a passion of mine for quite some time.

I am thrilled with this opportunity to learn from the best, and have an impact on the lives of millions. And to do this with a non-profit organization, whose mission is to promote openness, innovation and opportunity on the web, for the public good.

I'm almost wishing I gave-up this long-needed vacation.
