Happy New Year. Unfortunately, my last day at OpenCraft will be on January 24th. I know this decision is quite sudden. However, after much deliberation, I’ve decided to leave OpenCraft. It’s been quite a journey and I’ve learnt a lot !
After my trial period ended I wasn’t fortunate enough to join the core team. However, I was quite fortunate to be given a special role (thanks to @antoviaque consideration) that allowed me to continue working at OpenCraft.
While the new opportunity was great, the whole process of figuring things out affected me more me than I realized. I love experiments and being part of processes that give birth to new things. However, not at the expense of compensation . The last month has been tough for me due to the fact that I had a scarcity of work. Filling my 30h week quota has been challenging from the beginning. With this new role, it became even tougher. This started affecting me mentally and the motivation I once had plummeted. Coupled with other personal decisions, I had to make the decision of leaving.
Once again, thank you for the opportunity to work at OpenCraft. It was a pleasure interacting with some of you.
Best wishes, Michael.
