All Grown Up – ActiveState Software Inc.

Business CardSo it’s been exactly 4 months since I joined the folks at ActiveState and it has been a crazy/busy/exciting trip so far. Right from my first week, there was lots of talk about getting bought by another company and moving away from the parent company, Sophos. Just last week Sophos officially sold ActiveState to employees and Pender Financial. I am very happy about the new ownership as I was able to buy a very small share of ActiveState. We have been receiving lots of encouragement from our customers and the software development community as well. Exciting times!

So, what’s it like working at ActiveState? It’s fuckin great. I really love working with people that have made huge contributions to the open-source community, arguably changed the world, but still value a well stocked beer fridge over mostly anything else.
