Time For A New Job: Hello NineConsult, Goodbye Capgemini

As the year 2011 comes to an end, it is also time for me to quit my job, which i have had for more than a decade.

Starting February 1st, i will join NineConsult, which is a Danish consultant company. I am really looking forward to this change, and it will be interesting to be part of a 25 people organisation (as opposed to the 110.000+ employees in Capgemini).

Having good and skilled colleagues is one of the single most important criteria for happiness at work. And this makes it extra interesting in NineConsult, since they have a very high standard on the programmers they employ.

I think NineConsult is one of the best places to be for programmers at the moment. Paul Graham puts it this way when describing programmers in “great hackers“:

[…] what good hackers like is other good hackers. Great hackers tend to clump together– sometimes spectacularly so, as at Xerox Parc. So you won’t attract good hackers in linear proportion to how good an environment you create for them. The tendency to clump means it’s more like the square of the environment. So it’s winner take all. At any given time, there are only about ten or twenty places where hackers most want to work, and if you aren’t one of them, you won’t just have fewer great hackers, you’ll have zero.

I know a lot of my new colleagues from previous jobs, and all of them (no exceptions) are very skilled.

For this single reason alone, i am really looking forward to my new job :)
