So long and thanks for all the certs :-)

Hi folks,

I wanted to share the news that I’ve decided to pursue new challenges and February 20th (a week from today) will be my last day working for Let’s Encrypt/ISRG. It was a difficult decision for me to make but I’m comforted by the knowledge that the organization is filled with great people who will continue to do the best work possible on behalf of an encrypted web.

I can say with certainty that the past four years have been the most productive and enjoyable period of my career to date. Participating in the community forum has always been a highlight for me and I’m very grateful to the many folks who volunteer time here answering questions, moderating threads, and ensuring our community is helpful, thoughtful and above all, kind. From the bottom of my heart: thank you.

I’ll be taking some time off and then will be looking for new opportunities. Please feel free to reach out via LinkedIn or email (daniel<at>binaryparadox.net) if you know of an organization that might be a good fit.

Thanks,

Daniel McCarney (@cpu)
