It’s been a year since I’ve come to the Bay to work at Clef and I have to say, I really enjoyed my time there! I learned a lot about making user security more intimate and intuitive.
Working at Clef revitalized the life of a high paced startup development environment that I haven’t experienced not too long ago. That involves the culmination of having to pick up new infrastructure and work within environments designed to be erected for stability. I got to use Docker in a production environment which, personally, made me ditch Vagrant for the most part.
I got to learn a lot of things outside of work as well. I hear that’s a requirement for a healthy work/life balance ! I got to learn about the Black Panthers (who I legit thought started in Harlem1), the ABC, and many other sectors of people and movements by people of the neighboring cities of Oakland. It’s definitely a culture and climate shift coming from Brooklyn; a city whose tendencies haven’t worn off yet. It’s provoked me to invest in myself in a new way: buying up loads of literature. My apartment is swelling with Black focused, liberation centered and equality rearing literature and I don’t know if I’ll have the time to read it all! I have a lot of people to thank for even suggesting books (that probably didn’t know that they did). That’s in another post.
If you’re interested in reaching out to me about me working at your company or working for you as a consultant, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send copies of my resume upon request. Like Power Man said:
