On Leaving Zemanta
Posted by: Jure Cuhalev In: everyday life
As you’ve probably heard, I’ve left my job as a community manager and UX expert at Zemanta. It has been an incredible ride these two years and I can say that I’m now fully sold at the idea of startup business lifestyle.
Last three months in San Francisco were a great finish of this adventure, giving me time to think and reflect on how I want to expand my professional career. I realized that lately I wasn’t doing much of the things I love most: product development in every form – from designing, user experience, coding and of course interacting with users once we can get it to them.
With this in mind, the decision was simple. It’s time to find the next startup that I can help or found a new one, using some of the prototypes and ideas that are floating around.
I don’t have any concrete plans as of yet, as I plan to first help some friends with their projects and clean my backlog of things that I volunteered for and never got a chance to get around to. There will also be a lot of running as I prepare for my half-marathon.
If you have an interesting project, lets talk. I can’t wait to see to which city and continent the future will take me.
