Last day at ExacqNews, Work ·Friday May 23, 2014 @ 17:52 EDT (link)
The new company I'll be working for is called Yikes (I didn't pick the name), working in the proximity space, and with the hospitality industry to start but with plans beyond that. I'm sure I'll be making posts with whatever interesting events arise with the new company (although I may not be able to mention some names; but that's not new). There are certainly some "best practices" that need to be enforced on various contractors; coding standards, working in branches, and such; we are accumulating a lot of technical debt justified by up-front speed; we'll pay for it eventually and save nothing for taking (these types of) shortcuts. My position is Senior (Software) Development Manager; not much of a team yet, so I'm more running the parts of the system touching Bluetooth (a couple embedded systems and a phone app), doing general architecture, development process, and (still) a fair bit of development, which suits me fine. Like Exacq, we are also looking for C++ developers (embedded experience nice to have) and an EE (RF experience nice to have) if we can find one.
