I am seeking a new opportunity.

Dear Reader,

The only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
     — Isaac Asimov

That is how I started a blog post to my Ibuildings friends yesterday announcing that I will be leaving the company in December. It has been a great time for me – and I hope for them as well – but my time there is drawing to a close.

As I prepare to exit one opportunity, I am looking around for my next one. I’ve done a lot of reflection in the past few weeks about where I want to go next in my career and what I want to do. The problem is, in my career I’ve done three things that I truly loved doing.

  • Programming
  • Building and managing development teams
  • Working with the PHP community

It has always been very difficult for me to choose between those three. However, of the three, building and managing development teams is truly my passion; anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis knows that.

So instead of continuing down the path I have been traveling, I’m going to seek opportunities that allow me to help companies make their development teams the best they can be.

If you know of someone looking for my unique blend of skills, please make sure and pass their name on to me, I would love to talk to them. My resume can be found at the link in the toolbar marked “Resume” or click on this link “Resume of Cal Evans“. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me in my search.

Sincerely,
=C=

  1. Ibuildings is losing an important part of their crew with you not there anymore. Good luck with the search. I’m sure we’ll meet again ;)

  2. Good luck Cal! I’m sure you’ll find something great! Any company should be happy to have you!

  3. It’s been a great year, you’ve been an inspiring colleague. I’m sad to see you go, but I’m sure our paths will cross again!

  4. Good luck with searching for a new challenge!
    I am sure that you will find something that appeals to you.

    Good hunting!

  6. Cal,

    I wish you all the best and can’t wait to hear about where you end up. BTW, if you are interested in Denver/Boulder Colorado, let me know.

  7. Thank you all for your well wishes and kind words.

    @Wil Sinclair, yes, I will be moving back to TN. I probably should have put that in the body of the post. :)

    @Wil Moore Right now I am considering several non-Nashville opportunities but they are all via telecommute. If you are interested, ping me off line and we can discuss it. I don’t have the option to relocate from Nashville at the moment.

  8. Hi Cal,

    Sorry to hear you leave Ibuildings, the company that made us colleagues, but I understand that new challenges are out there for you.

    I enjoyed working with you, although only for a brief moment and if I can help you out in any way, let me know. I and the whole international PHP community is there to back you up.

    Good luck and God speed on your journey, may the PHPorce be with you!

  9. Best of luck to you Cal. If I can talk my company into enlisting your services you can be sure I will. You are a wealth of knowledge that anyone would benefit from learning from. iBuildings is losing a great one – which just means more of your wisdom can now be made available to the rest of us. ;)

  10. Ooh dang i just typed a big comment and as soon as i hit post it come up blank! Please please tell me it worked properly? I dont want to write it again if i do not have to! Either the blog glitced out or i am an idiot, the latter doesnt surprise me lol.
