One Journey Ends, Another Begins

End of Road - SignFor the last 5+ years, I have spent my days working for one of the world’s largest flooring manufacturers as a Senior Systems Engineer. I have written numerous software applications and improved hundreds more. Even though it’s been an interesting ride, I feel like it’s time for me to move on. I am much better suited to be working in the technology field than the flooring industry. So, today, I am making a transition to a new company that happens to be just that. I have accepted an offer to become an Enterprise Architect with a company in Palo Alto, California called TIBCO Software, short for “The Information Bus, Company”. Here is the company overview from the TIBCO website.

TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) is a provider of infrastructure software for companies to use on-premise or as part of cloud computing environments. Whether it’s efficient claims or trade processing, cross-selling products based on real-time customer behavior, or averting a crisis before it happens, TIBCO provides companies the two-second advantage™ – the ability to capture the right information, at the right time, and act on it preemptively for a competitive advantage. More than 4,000 customers worldwide rely on TIBCO to manage information, decisions, processes, people, and data in real time.

I believe this is a great opportunity for me and I’m very excited about it. I believe that I can benefit greatly from TIBCO and they from me. Best of all, I no longer have to hear the words “we are not a technology company”, because that’s all I have heard in my career with the flooring manufacturer. Instead, TIBCO promotes innovation and technology. After all, that’s what they’re all about.

The new job is going to require a lot of traveling out of me, but I’m looking forward to that as well. Before I became a full time employee with the flooring company, I spent several years prior doing consulting work all around the world which involved a lot of travel. Even though I’m not a spring chicken any more, I’m still looking forward to getting back out there. So, the travel shouldn’t be too bad on me. Plus, a couple good things about that kind of working-lifestyle is that you always get to visit different places, meet different people, and learn about different companies, unlike typical 9-5 jobs where you spend every day sitting behind a desk doing the same repetitive tasks day-in day-out. Since I’ll continuously be in a different environment working on different projects, the burnout won’t be as bad.

I’ll try to reply to comments and emails when I can, but my replies might take a little longer than normal. So, wish me luck on my new adventure and keep checking back here for updates about my travels.
