The job would be pretty intensive Release Engineering work, at least at first. It's not clear to me if everyone has read my resume and internalized that I have no Release Engineering expertise or experience; if that's a problem, I expect it will come up in the in-person interviews. I can learn, of course, but I'd like to have expectations properly set. The Palo Alto Company job is also Release Engineering as well as a wide variety of other tools, but we're all clear on my lack of expertise there.
Speaking of the Palo Alto Company, I don't know what they're doing or waiting for. It's annoying only because I've had so much major life flux in the past couple years that I resent their gratuitously contributing to it. Of course, they have no idea how I view it, nor should they.
Things with the San Francisco Company and the Santa Clara Company proceed apace, if slowly. Phone call with Santa Clara tomorrow, in-person interview in SF on Monday.
I'm also chatting with a friend about his tiny company in San Francisco; I'd love to work with him, but the gestalt of the thing feels not-quite-right this time around.
All told, it seems like pretty good odds I can have a job within a few weeks.
