@musicman just got off the phone with Sarah! She was super friendly. She said she would get back to me Wednesday or Thursday.

We had VPN issues yesterday, but if she said Wednesday or Thursday and you didn't hear anything, I would definitely check-in.

@musicman apparently phone screens are finishing this week; Sarah probably meant this Thursday 😋

last time this happened (just 3-4 months ago) they interviewed a ton of people and we kept getting all these false indications that things were getting close, so who knows.
three are going to in-person interview phase.

Nik's not happy at JFrog, but I still think you should apply there, or at least talk to Nik about why he's not happy and see if his reasons seem valid to you if you're serious about getting out of Buffalo.

He's an immigrant and my personal opinion is he just isn't going to be happy here and needs to move back to Europe.

@musicman Thanks for keeping me in the loop!

I have Nik's number 😊

We hired someone, but if we're smart, we'll be hiring someone else soon.

Also, I suspect we're going to keep hiring in Minneapolis no matter what our "official" policy is, so if you get another call, you might try saying you would prefer Minneapolis.

In all honesty, I am shocked we didn't hire someone in Alameda for the morale of the people in Alameda. It's all about the $, I guess...

@musicman thanks again for the updates! I really appreciate it and I'll keep that in mind.

word on the street is we are hiring a second person. I will keep you updated....if you want :)

@musicman I…don't think I'm willing to move to Minneapolis, even though I'm sure it would be fine… 😅

Minneapolis is awesome. Not sure why you wouldn't want to live here, particularly when moving from Buffalo.
