Leaving Amazon and my first day as an entrepreneur

leave a comment »

Friday was my last day at Amazon after spending 3 awesome years building ad platform products and AWS’s Big Data business…

…and today I started my new gig as CEO and cofounder of a SaaS startup based in New York City.

We’re tackling an area I’m passionate about (Talent Acquisition) using business models and tech I’m intimately familiar with (Cloud).

I’m excited about this new journey – and the opportunities, challenges, and learning experiences that come with being an entrepreneur.

Thanks to everyone who has provided advice, mentorship, introductions, and kind words over the last several months – it’s a long list. It means a lot to me and I will pay it forward (and back) whenever and wherever I can.
