Yesterday was my first day of work at inContact! "But wait," you say, "haven't you worked at inContact since January?" Well done, astute reader! The answer is yes... and no.
I've been consulting at inContact since January on a six month contract (six months takes a lot longer when you're in Kazakhstan for 9 weeks) and on Monday I started as a full-time employee. The consulting arrangement has been really good, but I do confess that it will be pleasant to get paid to not work on Federal holidays again :)
I also changed positions at inContact, moving from Product Management to Program Management. As Steve tells it, I went from one cryptically-named job that he can never explain to anybody to another job with a confusing and very similar-sounding title that he won't be able to explain either. The gist of the job change is that I'll be working more closely with the developers now, which is something I really enjoy, and the planning that I'll do is slightly more tactical than the more strategic roadmapping I did in Product Management. There, does that clear it all up? Yeah, that's why when people ask what I do, I just tell them, "I'm in software."
