Tell your friends! 12 1 0 It’s such a weird feeling. Since I began this blog in 2004, I’ve been able to say I was truly hired exactly one time. That day was Jan 9, 2013. In 2004, I was employed by Northrop Grumman. In 2006, I left NG to pursue the startup world, I took up residence at b5media as the CTO who never got the title. I did this on a contract basis. I worked for myself for a very long time, got hired in 2013, left that job in 2014 and went back to working for myself. I just realized, over time, that I wanted something different. I’ve avoided agencies, though quite a few have wanted me. These usually boiled down to what I term as “web development sweat shops”… Usually in the political space. They ramp up for campaign season – presidential and mid-term. They have a bunch of sales people in suits driving deals with campaigns – federal, state and local – to build websites and promote whatever brand of ideology they adhere to and the developers are overworked, have no seat at the table, and generally are expected to perform and work at 200% or risk getting fired. I’m not that guy, so I’ve avoided agencies. Unrelated note: Republicans have the deepest pockets. They spare no expense
