Giving back to the world

When I quit my job at Aptitud in December 2016 I had no clue what I was going to do or where I was going to do it. I found myself in an endless world of opportunities and that kind of scared me a bit.

When I finally got my bearings back in early January 2017 (after a very relaxing Christmas vacation) I decided I would try my luck and post my CV at several job sites.

To my huge surprise It didn’t take more than a couple of days before I had whole January booked with interviews at interesting product companies in Stockholm area.

At first I kept a really open-minded approach to every opportunity and tried hard not to filter out any opportunity. But along the way some values came to stand out more than others:

  • My next workplace should be a product company and not a consultant company.
  • My next workplace should be on a journey, i.e. I wouldn’t want to come to a product company where everything is already done. Both organisational and technical.
  • My next workplace should make the world a little better. Looking back at my professional life, had I contributed to any important difference to the world? Hardly, going forward this would have to change!

A couple of companies checked all my boxes but only one made it to the finish line.

The 27th of March 2017 I’m very happy and honoured to join RaySearch Laboratories as a Software Developer. (http://www.raysearchlabs.com)
