I am coming up on my last days as a Tribe.net employee. And laying on my deathbed many years from now, would you be willing...wait a second that's Braveheart. Many years from now I will look back on this year with positive sentiment; a year that contributed a substantial portion of cement to the foundation of my business constitution.
I've worn many hats at Tribe.net...project floater to marketing busy bee worker, some local bus/dev, producer, event organizer, ad traffic manager, account manager....I think more than any specific job description skill set I'll take away the intangible skill set. My observations in business etiquette and those quirky conversations by the water cooler or at the after work hangout are probably more influential than any resume bullet point.
The Tribe Networks ship has changed direction more than once but it has been great to see the adaptibility not only of users but of the company to accomodate to necessary changes. Straying from the ship analogy here, it's also great to see a team communicate and debate before/after changes when considering a change in trajectory.
And so I will be taking the GameDaily ad traffic manager job starting in early September. And if this rant sounds ultra dramatic as if it were Lance Armstrong on a podium announcing his retirement it is deliberate. Only I didn't do steroids while performing at Tribe (just kidding, I really do believe Lance).
So to all my fellow employees I want to say thank you for teaching me so much and I hope I've imparted a ration of some value to you as well.
