As I just mentioned in another thread, I was recently laid off from Wizards of the Coast. The parent company mandated shedding of several million from the budget. The timing was awful as my group was about to release a highly anticipated project
we'd been working on all year. I'd put together the team, lead the design work, lead the development team, and done a fair share of developing on it too. It was essentially done and I was pulled out of a meeting where I was calling for some last minute tweaks to the graphics to be let go. Rather disappointing.
Anyway, so I'm looking for work as a Director of Engineering / Sr. Software Development Manager, preferably in the gaming, ecommerce, or online industry. I would also be interested in a Lead Software Developer position if the opportunity was exciting enough. I've been doing this stuff for years and have a decent resume behind me. I'm not necessarily cheap, but I can be flexible for the right placement (I took a 75k pay cut to move to Wizards as the chance to be in the gaming industry piqued my interest).
Despite bold claims I might make, I am considered well grounded. When looking for work, I try to be direct and confident, please don't mistake that for foolish arrogance.
If any of you are willing to review my resume, I'd appreciate the feedback. If anyone knows anyone in the gaming industry in the Seattle area, please point them my way. I am directly tied to the Seattle area and cannot relocate, though I would be willing to telecommute.
The resume is very much a work in progress.
Oh, and for the lotustalk folk, pretend my qualifications also list 'and I drive a lotus'. =)
