Starting Thursday I’ll be joining Pinterest as their first content strategist. I’m beyond excited–building a discipline at a company whose product and design philosophy I love is a dream job.
At the same time, it hurts to leave Facebook. I’ve learned more in the past few years than should be legal, and the people I worked with are, hands down, some of the best in the industry. Only a dream job could’ve plucked me away at this point.
This is especially true of the content strategy team, who I watched grow from 4 to 12 during my time there, and who have created a thriving, beloved content practice in a hacker culture. I hope one of my teammates writes a book about this someday.
Until then, if you are doing content strategy you should consider doing it at Facebook. You will learn your face off, and you will work with one of the funnest, smartest, most caring teams of your career.
Matt and I moved to San Francisco 2 years ago, and it’s been uninterrupted adventure ever since. I’m looking forward to more of the same at Pinterest.
