That's all folks. We did it. After 5 years and 8 months, I'm hanging up my IBM lanyard. I've worked in several different teams across Cambridge and Hursley, each providing me with vastly different skills and experiences along the way. However, the one thing that remains consistent across every role, team, and site I've worked in is that it's never about the product or the revenue targets or whatever other jargon you want to use - it's about the people.
I've been so woefully fortunate to be surrounded by such beautiful and diverse people, and been part of so many intelligent and innovative communities. I'm hella excited about the fact that I'm going to be incredibly fortunate with this at Snyk as well, but I need to say thank you to every single person who taught, supported, made me laugh/laughed at me, and was there for me over the course of my career at IBM.
It's sometimes hard to remember amid all the code and release cycles, that you're each capable of making another person feel happiness. That's the real KPI we should be working towards. You've all well and truly delivered on that.
Thank you everyone, see you soon.
