Almost four months ago, one of my big dreams came true as I was hired by Mozilla to work as the project manager for the new Firefox Support project called SUMO (SUpport.MOzilla.com). It remember the strange, almost surreal (but very positive!) feeling I got when getting contacted and interviewed over the phone for the first time. The next step, flying across the Atlantic for the first time to meet some of the awesome people I had worked with over the Internet since circa 2002, was nothing short of amazing.
During the first two months, I worked from the Mozilla office in Mountain View, California, which gave me a good kick-start, and introduced me to some of the finer American traditions; for example, donuts, Baja Fresh, and In-N-Out! I also got to know a bunch of amazing people — more people than I could mention in this blog post.
Today, I feel privileged to have my hobby as my full-time job, and it’s been an awesome ride so far. In fact, it’s been so hectic and fun that I forgot to blog about this until now! I plan on increasing the blogging frequency for 2008, which is going to be an exciting year for sure.
