来週ペパボを退職します！転職先は Quipper です！みんな大好きウザい退職エントリも当然あとで書きますがウィッシュリストとか無いので！ブクマとスターを！！くれ！！！承認欲求！！！！— Kensuke Nagae (@kyanny) May 24, 2013
May 27 is my last day at paperboy&co.
I had a great time with gentle people in this 3 years and 3 months. Thank you for all my colleagues!
paperboy&co. is a good company for the following reasons:
- Culture: There are so many nice people here. They gather and play naturally. They love their colleagues, company, and the internet. The culture of paperboy&co. is the most wonderful one I ever seen.
- Progress: They have the will to improve their environment. They made a very good engineer evaluation system. They also are trying to introduce some good method such as Scrum.
- Steadiness: They keep growing. The sales, profit, and stock price are rising in the past few years. They also a member of GMO internet group, one of the largest internet business corporate group in Japan.
- and they paid a reasonable salary :)
However, a 200+ employee organization is too big for me, so I decided to leave from here and go to the other place to suit me more.
From May 28, I will join to Quipper, the mobile e-learning company based on London.
Quipper was founded by Masayuki Watanabe, a co-founder of DeNA, and the engineering team is led by Masatomo Nakano, a famous developer/blogger. They opened Japanese office at the beginning of this year, so it is the best time to join to the small, flexible team.
There are some reasons why I chose Quipper, but the most important one is passion.
During the Skype meeting at my first (and last) interview, CEO said to me:
Really, our platform and service may change the someone's life more better. It's a wonderful thing, isn't it?
I was deeply moved by his passion, therefore it was not possible to ignore it.
I have a dream in my life and work. I want to be a person who work on a world scale, while living in Japan. Since Quipper is a global company (the headquarters is located London), it's a great chance to take the first step into the world.
I miss seeing nice people, but it's my choice. I wish to learn more, so I decided to be the worst guy in the band again.
