Moving on from Intel

I’m down to one week left at Intel.  I’m looking forward to the next step in my career / personal development — I’ll be taking a position at IntelePeer starting in May.

This represents a big change in a number of ways.  It’s a small company of ~70 people, in a totally new industry for me (telecom).  I’ll be doing more focused software development than I’ve done for a while at Intel.  And while I will still be in Fort Collins, I’m going to be telecommuting primarily.

There’s plenty I will miss about Intel, but I think it’s time to move on.  I’ve been here (HP / Intel) since getting out of school (12 years), and the longer I stay, the harder it will be to look into other opportunities.  Besides, one of the core Intel values is supposed to be risk taking, right?
