I’m joining EngineYard to work on Orchestra

Today, I finish up three and a half great years with Boards.ie, and next week I join Eamon, David, Helgi and Gwoo with Noah, ElizabethDavey (and a couple of others) to help kick Orchestra into orbit by joining EngineYard.

At EngineYard, I hope to build upon my experience bringing scale to web applications within Distilled Media, and take it to a wider audience.

I’m looking forward to (and a little daunted by!) working with such an accomplished group of people, and helping to drive our manifesto. Our offices will be down on Barrow Street, near Facebook and Google, in the same building as DogPatchLabs and friends at Intercom, in an area that is being dubbed the “Silicon Dock.” I’m incredibly excited by the sort of buzz that is going to be around this place.
