Two weeks at Google have been... amazing. There's a lot that I can't talk about, but I can feel comfortable in confirming some of the things you hear about Google:
- The people are insanely smart.
- The scale blows your mind as a Noogler (new Googler).
- The food is great.
- It has culture.
I'm a "Site Reliability Engineer" which is a job title that may not exist anywhere else. It's basically production-oriented operational engineering: keeping production systems running and making them run better.
Ann and I have found a new place, so we'll be moving there from the corporate housing next week. It'll be nice to get our stuff back and get settled in.
