I’ve been doing product design there for 7yrs. The last 3yrs I led the iOS team working alongside @dylanginsburg and @zachwaugh — they are the best 💜.

I joined Basecamp just over a year and a half ago. Today I am leaving. Technical support, digging into logging to find out what happened, and building the technical skills on my team are things I’d love to keep doing.
