Thanks so much for the offer, Lenny... I agree that Pivotal is a terrific place to work: I've been touting them at the Meetup for years now. 

Funny thing is, I was already 'sponsored' by one of the guys currently working at Pivotal Labs and didn't even get invited to the RPI! I thnk the HR girl got a little bewildered about what I was looking for: I told her an engineering position but I've got a ton of management experience as well as strong technical background and I think that just confused the issue. Funny because I'd done an RPI with Rob about two years ago and was OK'd for the next round... and then I got too busy with other projects to follow through.

I'm planning to call on some other folks I know there and see if there's a way to work around that -- if you think that resubmitting makes sense, I'm more than happy to send you my resume and have you do that, but I'm not sure it's the best move at this point.

Cool that your picture is on the front page... your "few seconds" of fame... repeatedly :=)

Have a great one...jon

Hi Jon,

I don't know anything about mirrorplacement, but if you're looking for
"agile, paired programming, TDD" I'd say you can't ask for better than
Pivotal Labs, which is definitely hiring. My face is even on­careers for the first few seconds. :)

Email me your resume if you'd like me to submit you, tho applying
directly from that page will get you an equally speedy reply from
Pivotal's recruiting team.


Disclaimer: I was a contractor at Pivotal for about 2 years, but I'm
not there anymore bc I've gone back to the startup world. I'll be back
at Pivotal someday, tho. Not only is it the friendliest, least
stressful and most productive development environment I've ever
encountered, but they also serve breakfast every day. And I loves me
some breakfast! :)
