Back in June 2011 I joined Surevine – a company of great people whom I cannot commend highly enough* as a excellent working environment, as promoters of open source, and of people who care about software and security and about doing both right. I am pleased to have helped cause some beneficial change at Surevine – including, but not limited to, security awareness, operations architecture and obtaining ISO27001 certification.
All this said: I’ve been offered a really exciting prospect which I’ve decided to pursue.
Thus: I shall shortly be joining Facebook as a software engineer and will be working out of the London/Covent Garden office.
What happens after that will be interesting in a whole variety of ways.
* If you’re a UK-based security geek or Java developer then go look Surevine up. Send them a resume. Say that “Alec’s blog sent you”; I get no money for this, it’s just a really great company that deserves good people.
