I’ve finished up at Microsoft and heading to PIXAR.


 


I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was excited to be promoted to a Product Manager role on the Rich Client Platform Team (Silverlght/WPF). Well, whilst I was at SxSW I bumped into some folks at PIXAR whom I shared a few beers with.


Cut a long story short, I jokingly asked if there were any positions gong and they stated yes, with that I’ve had ongoing chats and decided to take my leap of faith and branch out into 3D modeling & animation with a new role as a Junior Creative Modeller.


Given its my core passion, I felt it was the right thing to do, and whilst I’ll miss my time here at Microsoft, I think one can all agree this is a  company well worth exploring and you’re an idiot if you believe anything anyone blogs about on April first as clearly this is a fool’s day prank.


As if I’d leave a sweet role working with/on one of the hottest products on earth right now…. although PIXAR I am open to negotiation still heheheh.

  12. I heard on the grapevine that a  Junior Creative Modeller from PIXAR     applied for the vacant Product Manager role on the Rich Client Platform Team (Silverlght/WPF)  A few grapes were somewhat squashed and I think some other ones were left out in the sun…  They were nothing compared to the grapes which actually spoke to me…  mind you they were speaking in binary so it took a really long time to communicate.  Still talking grapes around PIXAR is nothing new.
