@johnleider I’ll let Blaine share what he wants to share on that count. Suffice to say that @brenna @katem and I are all bummed, and the company remains healthy—this isn’t a layoff or anything. Here’s what I said internally:
You’ve obviously been an amazing resource to the company, Blaine, and built out a really powerful base of maintainers that will hopefully be the core of the company for years to come. All that will be very difficult to replace.
On the personal side, I enjoyed being roomies in Brussels and sharing beers in Boston. I’m sorry we won’t get to work together directly more. Hope you enjoy your next stop!
And yes, we’ll be working to replace Blaine. We haven’t posted anything yet, because we want to think through what we’ve learned from Blaine’s tenure and make sure we’re doing the best we can to serve you all, future lifters, and current/future customers too.
