During my time at Cooking.com, I’ve worked with amazing clients, gotten a crash course in E-commerce 101, spec’d an entire mobile website and even gotten to try bacon, peanut butter and chocolate cookies. I’ve had the privilege of working with amazing colleagues and making wonderful friends. And, I’ve learned a very important lesson about myself.
As much as I enjoy regular sleep and a steady routine, in my heart, I’m truly a start-up kind of a girl. There’s just something about the energy and excitement of building a product from the ground up that just clicks for me. God help me — and the bags under my eyes — but I love that startup pace and passion.
Which is why I’ve accepted a Product Manager position at BetterWorks, where I’ll be starting on Monday. I can’t say enough how much I believe in the product they’ve built thus far. And, I couldn’t be more excited about joining such an intelligent, innovative team. Between the concept and the creative energy of the folks building it, I see huge potential for the BetterWorks product, and I’m psyched to have the opportunity to help contribute to it.
Of course, I’m sorry to leave Cooking.com. I’m so proud of everything I’ve helped to build there, and I truly believe in the strength of the team I’m leaving behind. I love what we’ve done together, and I know they’ll continue to do great things once I’m gone.
That said, I’m extremely excited about this next step in my career. I know it will be a challenge and an adventure, and I can’t wait to get started. Wish me luck!
